What Houzz contributors are saying:
Remember: When preparing to host guests in your small space, don’t just consider where the people will go — think about their stuff too. Creating a dedicated bag-and-coat drop will ensure that you keep your valuable seating and surface spaces open without making your friends and family feel as though they have to lug around their belongings the entire time.We create an impromptu coat rack outdoors with the help of two garden shepherd’s hooks connected by a driftwood pole. When topped with a few S-hooks and hangers, this creates ample dedicated space for outerwear. We also place an outdoor mat and a folding bench beneath the rack to provide extra inches for heavier handbags, computer bags and diaper bags.
