Cute idea - DIY hook rack for bags, purses, scarves, etc. Put this in the closet to hang the stuff that doesn't go on hangers? You can pick whatever knobs you want and just screw them into a piece of wood painted whatever color you want.
No mudroom? No problem. - I collected antique door knobs and added them onto a leftover board for a great coat rack that can even stand up to winter parkas! Topping it off with salvaged crown moulding, created a great shelf for gloves and hats.
