Coat hooks by the back door

I can't decide if this is a good idea. Will it help clean up a mess, or will it seem like a mess?

Only two holes (with anchors) in the wall...should I give it a whirl?

ps. rug from ebay

UPDATE: BETTER IDEA! In the cloak closet for the umbrellas


  1. That's a tough one! What's on the other side of the doors? Is there an end cabinet or something? The good thing is summer is here and those coats probably won't be needed as much! By the way I love love love all of the windows in your home. Nothing makes a home as great as large windows!

    Danica -

  2. Love the rug - it's gorgeous. The cloak closet seems like the best storage solution to me.

    I say yes to hooks by the door! The ones we just added in our mudroom/mailroom have made a HUGE difference. Little one actually hangs her coat there every day with no prompting from me!

  4. Love what you came up with. I love the ease of hooks, but I find ours get messy pretty quickly. Still, at least my husband has stopped leaving jackets and sweaters draped over every chair in our house!

    I love the test run with painter's tape. If only I did more test runs around here before haphazardly banging holes into my walls... ;)
