Make A DIY Coat-Rack Using Pegboard
Every kid’s room needs a coat rack to hang hats, scarves, bags and jackets. But instead of plain wall hooks, make a faux pegboard and hang it on the wall, adding customised hooks painted in bright colours.
It’s as easy as drilling holes in a sheet of plywood and making hooks from dowel and bun feet.
Make only about five hooks to avoid overloading the rack and so you can move them into different configurations, leaving some low enough for little arms to reach.
DESIGN TIP Designing bedroom storage means you can make functional pieces do double duty as decorative features.
DIY TIP Cut a single sheet of plywood to size with a circular saw or use a jigsaw to make curved shapes.
