What do you do with old trophies once the nostalgia has faded? Why stick them on the top shelf of your closet when you can turn them into a great coat rack! I was inspired to make this project after seeing a coatrack that used old doorknobs.

Only I use it for helmets, baseball caps and roller/ice skates. ( I tie the laces together and hang them over the trophy. Now my kids can easily find their sporting equipment and it stays off the floor! Posted: 12:24 pm on November 23rd

This IS the coolest idea yet for old trophies. I have about twenty of my old motorcycle trophies from the 1970’s packed away. I might have dig them out and copy your pegboard design. I can’t get over how great this looks.
