eames coat rack
Photo from Thompson Family-Life

I love to think I had a very small part (very very small, but whatevs) in inspiring Danielle of Thompson Family-Life to create this Eames Hang-It-All-inspired coat rack -- one that, if you're a little bit handy, you can make for yourself too.

So back to me... Yep, my wonderful little home tour with Abbey Hendrickson and her photo of her Eames Hang-It-All coat rack was the first to pique Danielle's interest in the colorful and modern coat hanger.

But then (and here's where the story becomes no longer about me... if it ever even was...), the Eames coat rack's $179 price tag inspired Danielle to make her own. And not only did she make her own version of this coat rack, but she shares the full tutorial with all of us. Oh, lucky us.

I'm so impressed with myself Danielle's creativity and ingenuity here. Lovely piece.

Have you ever created your own DIY project after being inspired by a designer version?
