Weekend DIY - Coat + Purse Wall Rack

Wasted Space. Period. This space has taunted me for years. I once put a tiny side table there with a plant on it. It served no purpose. I never knew how to transform this space into something truly functional. Until now. . .

The Vision:

After endless scrolling (exhaustively and usually until wee hours in the morning) it finally came to me. Why not have a space for our coats and my purse? . . .instead of the usual spot on the side couch. BRILLIANT! So we got to work on planning. 

It will be another simple, inexpensive, weekend project. My favorite kind. The best part? You can really transform a space into something functional in such a short time!
