Winter jackets…and coats…how do you store yours??? What in the world to do with all of them???
In a house with a few children, keeping up with winter wear is challenging! I…ahem…
took over re-purposed our coat closet to contain our Montessori materials and other school manipulatives. So, when I asked my husband for a wall of hooks in order to hang the now homeless coats and jackets he was less-than-thrilled. No. Hanging hooks down the wall in our hallway was out, he said. Really? I thought that was such a great idea! Finally, one day I asked him about the stairs. Could I use the stairs and hang hooks on each ascending step of the stairs?? Wouldn’t that be fantastic, I said!!!! (Flashing my big blue eyes and with my most convincing smile) Each child can have a hook right at their height. I had worn him down enough. He said YES!!!!
I’ve been meaning to post our solution for a while now (we did this last year!!) Yesterday, I finally took pictures for you!!!
Surely the rest of you have already figured this out, right?? If you’re wondering how to manage all those coats and jackets – consider a well placed, sturdy hook!! If you’ve got stairs…I’m just sayin’!!
