You have to understand I really wear hats. I have more hats than I have shoes (I have two pairs of sandals, one pair of Sunday shoes, two pairs of house slippers/clogs, and two pairs of boot - one of which needs to go to the repair shop). I have more hats than I have purses. I have four purses, three of which I purchased from my Mom's Etsy shop. I have more hats than I have jeans. I have two pairs of jeans so that I can always have a clean pair (and they are identical).
I might have as many skirts as I have hats. I have a hanger on the back of my bedroom door with eight hooks and it has double hats on some hooks. I have hats sitting in the closet. I usually have several hats hanging over the knob of the banister rail in the entry.
So when I saw this idea in one of my Mary Jane's Farm I decided to give it a shot.
Here are the hatstands without hats.
They are easy to make. I have two more that I am in the process of making one is going to use an I-don't-know-what-it-is and one is going to use a potato masher. When I post those pictures, I will hopefully have a tutorial written.
These are them on the trunk at the foot of my bed with hats on them. This is my effort at staging - pathetic...isn't it!! :)
Here they are on the trunk like real life. With a throw on the trunk to prevent from my rambunctious girls scratching it up and some books that hubs is using for reference right now.
I am thrilled to bits with how these turned out!!
