Since the weather is changing in our area, I've noticed we have more coats out of the closets and onto the hooks in our back hallway. The hooks are great for the quick coat grab on the way out the door. Here is a picture of the hooks...no big deal, just hooks.
Why am I sharing this with you?
The dreaded coat bump!! Lol
You've all seen it...it's the little hump in the fabric that the hook leaves at the neck of your coat, jacket or sweater.
Here's the Tool Time Tuesday solution.
and the tool for the day...your drill.
It drills easily, but start slow so you don't slip.
This size hole is great for thin hooks.
For larger knobbed hooks like these, you may need to cut away some of the ball after you make the smaller hole.
I used snippers. The ball is just rubber, so it's easy.
Just slips on.
Certainly not a fashion statement for the home, but our hooks are pretty much covered with coats all year long.
If you want them to be a fashion statement, you could always paint them or Mod Podge fabric on them.
This is the BEFORE BUMP...
and here's the AFTER BUMP...much better
There still might be a slight bump from the tennis ball, but the ball is larger and certainly not as pronounced as the small bump. The larger bump falls out easier as you wear it too.
This is a small project to help out with the little things in life...it's all in the details, right??
