I first came up with this idea 2+ years ago, when I started noticing more and more sweaters, jackets and dinosaur costumes being thrown around the house – something that is a given with 2 little kids and us going in and out of the house 20 times a day in the constantly changing Colorado mountain weather.
A wall mounted coat hanger was what we needed but I couldn’t find one I liked enough to hang in a prominent part of our house, so I took matters into my own hands, transforming a typically simple but very essential and functional object into an artpiece that expresses something about me – my love of mountains and bright colors. Today we have 3 of these hanging at home and I don’t feel bad about having all these wacky outfits hanging on the wall because they are accompanied by art that I love.
