One {this one} looked super fun and easy and I decided I needed to make one for our guest bathroom....you know, to scare away any guests that might be foolish enough to enter our asylum.

Board and Batten Coat Nook by NotSoIdleHands.com

Ever since we moved in a little over a year ago, I've been planning and re-planning this little area next to the laundry room.

But, none of them were "the one." Or, they … [Read more...]
