When you live in a house without a lot of closet storage space, you have to get creative with you you store everyday items so they are tidy but also accessible. That’s where the idea for creating my own hanger for my ironing board so that I could hang it on the wall but in a way that was still attractive.

I really wanted to come up with something that was functional of course, but that looked good too. Our laundry room / pantry is a room I have been wanting to make some updates in, but I felt like before I got too far into that, I needed to come up with some clever storage solutions. A pretty room is great, but doesn’t do you any good if it isn’t functional first.
I started by finding some great coat hooks. (Mine are from Amazon) They cost just a few dollars and have a worn, rustic look to them that I really liked. I’ve long been a fan of the farmhouse look because it’s so cozy and lived in but I also wanted something that fit with our old house.
My next mission was to find a piece of rustic wood. B saved me a trip to the salvage guy outside town by sending me to our garage instead. I guess it pays to have lots of scraps from past home projects.
I found a piece of wood that I liked in B’s scrap pile and cut it down to size. The color of the wood was good already so I didn’t even both to stain or finish it in any way. I simply mounted my hooks onto the wood and then mounted the wood onto the back of the door to the laundry / pantry room. [ I used a stud finder to make sure I was mounting my holder properly to the wall.
The project took less than 30 minutes from start to finish and my total cost was less than $10. Now if only I had a better looking ironing board.
Need a new cover? I found some great ones here, here and here. I think one of these lovelies is in my future.
