This was originally a metal wall display rack for automobile belts in an automotive shop. I managed to talk myself into ownership when they were tossing it because they were changing brands! Yippee! So glad I needed an oil change that day!
It hangs right inside the front door and is the best catch all because it is virtually indestructable and can hold ANYTHING!

Because I'm a collector of elephants, I knew there was NO WAY I was leaving without this!
