Several years ago I stayed with my daughter to help her out while she was attending college. They had coats for every type of weather conditions. Coats were everywhere. I asked her husband if he would put up some coat hooks so we would not have so many coats cluttering the house. One day I had errands to run when he was off from work and when I had returned that evening he hung the coat rack. It held all of the coats they owned! It was fabulous! He told me he looked at hooks they had for sale and decided to make his own. He made 10 hooks from horse shoes ( they had from their horses ) and mounted them on a board and nailed it to a stud in the wall.
