A quick hat and coat rack

Matthias mixes and matches some pieces for a coat rack that will fit in a small entryway.  

Part list:
Grundtal hooks (5 pcs/package)
Grundtal hanger (2 pcs/package)
Grundtal rail(31 1/2″)
Kludd glass whiteboard
Bjärnum bracket (nickel plated, 11″)
Statlig shelf oak (46 7/8″ x 11″)
Statlig shelf oak (31 1/8″ x 7 1/2″)

From top to bottom:
Bjärnum brackets with Statlig shelf and Grundtal rail (with hooks) mounted on the bottom and approx. two-thirds of the shelf width from the wall.


Kludd glass whiteboard to avoid dirt on the wall.
The small Statlig shelf with 5 Grundtal hangers – mainly for the clothes of our little one.

Kludd glass whiteboard again.

    In a corner of my small hall with 5 doors I use two 40cm Grundtal towelrails and some 20 hooks or so as a coathanger but this looks nice too.

    Please note that the shown hooks are not on Ikea’s site anymore, only S-hooks which fall off too easily (but may be easily hacked…)

  2. Great ideas! Might be inspired to actually do something about hooks in my boys’ new bedroom. :)

    Great idea! A perdon could use the same grundtal rail with a shelf as a pot rack in a kitchen! Thanks!
