Tired of having hats strewn around? This is for you!

Having a lot of boys living under one roof can bring in some issues unusual to other households. There was a time when finding matching socks would take up at least ten minutes. We’ve moved past that stage though. Lately, it’s organizing  a lot of hats – and I mean, a lot.

With its minimalist design, this rack doesn't take much space at all.

For the past years, my boys’ hats were just lying around in different rooms in the house. Some were so deformed, being scrunched inside a small drawer, that they had to throw those away. Fortunately, my husband found a great solution for organizing hats – a wooden hat rack he made by himself.

It’s an easy project. It took my husband just several hours from start to finish. I love the finished product. It’s not bulky at all, perfect for putting hats up without deforming them.
