Hackeas: It’s butts today

Wag the jacket
Nick made a coat rack out of a Fabian shelf and some Bastis hooks.

Nick explains, “I found my couch always covered in jackets since I had nowhere to really put them, and I found the hooks amusing, so now I hang my jackets up on my dog butt coat rack. I picked red, green and black to give it kind of an African/Jamaican theme, for no reason in particular. (They only had a few colors available.) The assembly is really simple, just a few screws and that’s it.

Tail end
Gunter says, “I love Ikea, dogs and books (well, not exactly in that order) so I have grabbed a Bastis hook, glued in a small neodym magnet and pepped up a plain metal bookend with it.

    looks great. I would have painted the board some color first, but still it is cool!

    I’m loving the coatrack. It would be perfect for the leashes and dog towels I currently have in an artful pile by my front door.

    Gina…. do what I used to do before Ikea moved to my hood: look on ebay.

    Might cost you a little more, but you might also find a lot combining different colors.

    They don’t sell these on-line and I don’t live anywhere NEAR (as in 300 miles) an IKEA store! SAD!!!! I want one in every color!

    I love those hooks! I have some in my bathroom for towels and robes. They’re a great pop of color on the white door, and they surprise people when they remove a towel for drying their hands!
