I have to say, my addiction to straw bags doesn’t seem to be waning, in fact it appears to be getting stronger and stronger! I realised that if I didn’t create some storage for them I would soon be drowning in them a la Grey Gardens, and Ben would have to call emergency services to help dig me out..
Luckily I realised that the DIY Entryway Organizer I created a few months ago could be adapted to work as a fantastic hanging bag rack. What a win! As you’ll remember from the original tutorial, it was a very simple project to create using a wooden dowel, a few strips of leather and some S hooks. All I did to modify it was remove the mirror and add a few extra hooks, and bam it’s ready to house your favourite bags, straw or otherwise!
On the subject of straw bags, is anyone else as into them as I am? I seem to need to buy a new one at every destination I stop, meaning I always come home with a couple, and even though they are all similar I think each one is equally important – completely going against the tenants of my Wardrobe Rehab project but I think you’re allowed to have one completely unrealistic addiction in your wardrobe, right?
The organizer design lends itself to being a bag rack really well because the leather straps allow the hooks to sit away from your wall, a great feature that ensures your bags don’t get crushed.
