Grundtal scarf

Published on September 2nd, 2010 | by Jules Yap


The ultimate scarf organizer

Materials: GRUNDTAL Towel rail, and S hooks, BINDER CLIPS

Description: I needed a way to store Scarves. If you have a basket or some sort of closet thing, you will know that it SUCKS. Because scarves need to be seen, and not folded. They also need to be organized in a way that does not leave them in a massive pile on the floor every morning. NO SUCH INVENTION EXISTS. Until now.

Install the GRUNDTAL two pole towel rack into the wall at about 6 feet from the ground. Hang the S hooks from it and then attach about 2 Binder clips per hook. You can not just hang the scarves on the S hooks directly – you will get tears and bumps and they will fall off constantly. Now clip all of your scarves to the binder clips. You may peruse through your scarves with a simple click click click.

    Can I do this using shower hooks instead if s hooks and clips?

    OMG! this is so great! I have a big basket of scarves and it is such a pain to find one that often I just skip wearing them. Im not sure that I have space form this in my current place but I might try incorporating the scares into my closet.

    Hi, lovely decorative solution. If you would use the Riktig rings around the rail, they will not fall of like S hooks can.

    You have a beautiful home! I love the entry way like this!! wow!
    and the idea is neat too, just hope that the “s” shaped hook don’t come off all the time!

    i do something similar, only i use binder rings or key rings. i thread the scarves through the quarter-sized hole so that they’re not bound or clipped in any way.

    The scarves add nice color to the corner of the room. Neat idea! And it can handle variations with different types of hooks, clips, or whatever devices a person wants to use.

    Very clever. I too like my scarves to be seen.
