After seeing this little gem of an idea on Jen Jones' I-Heart Organizing blog, I knew this was something I could replicate and I already had the perfect spot for it - right by the entrance door from the garage. Perfect. My dining chairs would finally be spared the indents left from the weight of the bags hanging off their corners and my floor would be free of bag (and eye) clutter.
It was a very simple and relatively quick project. I pinched a piece of spare skirting board my Dad had laying around, which my husband cut to size, and then chose some cute little ceramic door knobs from My Love Story on E-bay for $6.65 each (plus postage, which does almost double the cost - shhhh, I didn't tell my husband that little worthless tidbit of information). I painted the skirting using leftover paint from my bed makeover and gave it three coats.

To give you an idea of where the hooks sit (just as we walk in from the garage).
How about you? Have you used something in a way that it was not necessarily intended? Do share - I'd love to hear about it.
