You have holiday guests coming over.  Many people equals many coats (at least it does in Michigan).  Oh, sure, they could toss them on your bed, but wouldn't it be more inviting to hang them on this festive coat rack.  It's super easy to whip up.  Just take a vintage carom board and attach hooks or knobs -- cabinet knobs will screw from the back thru a hole and right into the knob.  It's just that simple!

Thanks so much for sharing!! (But, please don't share those storms with Ohio this weekend...) :)

Stay warm.
