Materials: 8 x BÄSTIS hook, 1 x HAMPEN carpet
Description: “New home, so we needed a new coat rack “I thought. What to do? Let’s drive to IKEA.”
We found those cute dog-hooks and drove home but I needed something more. It was too little for my taste. So I spend another afternoon in IKEA and found HAMPEN which looked like grass. An idea was born!
It’s really simple. Take the hooks and find out in what position you want them. Take the measurements of the distances, mark them on the wall, bore holes for the wall plugs and put the plugs into the holes. Fasten the carpet on the wall (I took little nails from IKEA ) and mark on it with needles the position of the holes in the wall. Now screw the screws through the carpet into the wall and put the hooks onto the screws.
REALLY SIMPLE AND LOOKS GOOD WITH OR WITHOUT COATS
Have fun with it and best regards from Kassel in Germany!
