Ten Creative and Unusual Coat Hooks Your Coat Will Love

Before anyone asks “No!” I am not scraping the barrel with this one, it will be a lot more interesting than you think I promise. Maybe I am putting far too much thought into the little things in life, but I often think about what certain things like “Coat hooks” say about the homeowner. After all, it was Charles De Gaulle who once said: “start out in a new relationship by giving up your hat, then you give your coat, then your shirt, then your skin and finally your soul.” Well, before I give up all that lot I will be checking where it is going, and what the coat hanger says about the person, so I have decided to look at…

This is simply stunning! Simple design, easy to replicate and looks incredible. Really the only thing you would need to pay for is the outer frame, but then again you could just a plank off a pallet or something like that. I for one loved this.

Forks recycled into coat hooks

For me, this cool coat rack made from recycled forks is a lot better than the same thing but with spoons because a fork can be bent into certain styles that seem to give it a lot more “personality” than the spoon ever could. Badass forks?! Oh yes!
