This just may be the (strangest? bravest? insert-word-here) project to date in Funky Junk land.
So, you remember my horse gate headboard, correct?
Well, that beloved gate use to hold the coats in the front entry. So we’ve been busy stuffing an overstuffed closet to accommodate the coat situation. Nothing cool came to mind on what to put on the wall again for quite some time.
One day I was cleaning up my holding tank junk stash when I just thought… why don’t I hang all this stuff up? It’s in my way anyway…
So I took it one step further and decided to litter up the front entry wall, wall paper fashion.
I predrilled holes in stuff and just screwed it into the drywall. Some things hit studs, others didn’t. I figured if a placement clicked, anchors could always be added later.
That step proved unnecessary. Everything was sound. So things were piled onto the wall hodge podge style. Nothing was pre-measured or calculated. The only rule was working around the existing bench.
Smaller items were then added to fill in the holes.
Once everything had a home, it was time for coats and keys and whatever else a front entry seems to have too much of.
How to make that huge number 2 is HERE.
The little white shutter got all geared up for key storage.
A handy little letter organizer found a home by the door too.
The bingo clipboard will be handy for grocery lists or necessary notes.
The ladder was perfect for scarves and can even hold a book or two over the rungs if desired. We always stash books by the door to take on car rides.
I wish I could see your expression… ok, well, maybe not…
After it was full enough, I stood back, looked at it and chuckled to myself. And debated on whether I should show it. But my wall art with junk for coats is here to stay… so why not?
After all, even a junk coat hook wall goes better with Coke.
