Coat hooks. I mean... there's not really much you can do there, right? (Wrong.) With one or two or 20 standard coat hooks and a little bit of ingenuity, you can create some pretty stellar little hallway hacks worthy of bearing an artsy label like "entryway installment" (rather than dull old coat rack).
A great project to use wooden offcuts, old hooks and some shelf brackets. I'd make the shelf with a surround so I could store more things in it and not worry about it rolling or falling off plus it hides some of the contents for a cleaner, more organised look
