Take your coat closet from messy to organised, with this simple, damage-free DIY. Using the door as extra organisation space helps you see all your accessories, so you can easily switch up your cold weather outfit as you get out the door. And, Command™ hooks come off without damage, when you want to refresh your closet again!
– Command™ Medium Wire Hooks – this project used four
– Cluttered closet items to organise such as hats, mittens, ear muffs, etc.
– Lightweight dowel rods cut to size – this project used two rods cut to 20 inches
– Spray paint in the colour of your choice – this project used white
– Small curtain rings with clips – this project used seven
NOTE: Follow all Command™ Brand package instructions for proper surface cleaning and prep, adhesive strip placement and recommended weight claims.
1. Remove small, easily misplaced items such as hats, gloves, ear muffs, etc. from cluttered closet shelves.
2. Determine where you plan to create additional storage and follow all surface prep instructions on the back of the packaging. This project took advantage of the space on the back of the closet door.
Following the package instructions, adhere two Command™ Medium Wire Hooks to the inside of your closet door, placing them at the desired height directly across from each other.
NOTE: If more than one hook is used to hold an item, make sure that the weight is evenly distributed between the hooks. Hooks need to be level when holding rods. When more than one hook is used to hold an item, the total weight capacity remains the same as one hook.
Repeat the above steps to adhere two more hooks several inches below the first to allow space for the items to hang.
3. Spray paint the dowels in the colour of your choice and set aside to dry. This project used white spray paint.
NOTE: Be sure to follow all manufacturer instructions on the paint can.
Once the dowels are dry, slide 3-4 curtain rings onto the rods. Then, hang lightweight items such as hats, mittens, gloves and ear muffs on the clips.
4. Place the first dowel on the top two hooks, ensuring that the items are evenly spaced across the rod. Repeat to hang the second rod.
