When cans of paint arrive on site, you may be inclined to think that their contents will be adorning the walls, but in the case of these High Functioning Coat Hooks, the receptacles themselves are employed as the decoration.

Instructables member Brian Jewett suggests these clever DIY clothes hooks as a cheap and cheerful way to increase storage within your front foyer or around the back door of your home. By fixing the base of these tins to brick, concrete or drywall, one ends up with large pegs from which jackets, bags and scarves can be slung. Brilliantly, these High Functioning Coat Hooks have even more to offer. By keeping the lid off of each container, the empty inner cavity is perfect for storing gloves, keys, mail and more.
