Maybe it’s just in my home, but kid coats always seem to end up strewn across floor. Or on the couch. Or dropped in the doorway. There’s a coat tree for the taller family members, but what about the little people?
Hanging hooks on the wall is a great solution for some families, but not ours. We rent and don’t want to drill holes in the wall. Even if we decided to put holes in the wall, I would have to hire a handyman since I don’t have a drill for cement walls.
I pondered a solution. Perhaps a coat tree for kid height would be good. Good idea, but where to buy one locally?
Then BOOM. A flash of inspiration like a lightning bolt hit me. I could hang the over-the-door rack on the back of a straight-backed sturdy chair! VOILA! a SOLUTION. I have chairs and I have over-the-door-hooks.
It’s been 3 days and so far so good.
Of course this isn’t where the chair is normally located. It’s pushed up against the table and fully usable. I decided to put a piece of cloth over the chair to protect the wood from potential scratches.
My chairs are sturdy tipping over isn’t a concern for me. But if you have a chair that may have tipping potential you can put something heavy on the seat to weight it down. A backpack or a basket filled with outdoor gear like hats and gloves would be something to use.
