I’m a big ol’ hooker

IMG_5809

As you peeps are well aware, my apartment is smallllllll. Like, so tiny that my pygmy dog barely fits in it! Okay, so that’s not quite true, but downsizing from 1600 square feet to 753 square feet has been a challenge. We’ve got a lot of crap, basically. As a result, I’ve had to be very creative with space. 

One of my greatest triumphs in the quest for expanded space has been an imaginative use of wall hooks. Basically, if it’s not breathing, I’ll hook it! Coats, umbrellas, watches, bracelets, coats, ties, hats, scarves, towels, oven mitts, blankets, shirts, bags, leashes, coats– and did I mention coats? WE WILL NEVER STOP BUYING CUTE COATS!!! EVERRR!!!!

So, since you can’t stop us from shopping, we’ve got to make some space. Luckily, my favorites (CB2, Dot & Bo, West Elm, Domino, et al.) have adorable and practical wall hooks. Here are several I’ve purchased:

Hooks

From left to right: leaning edge aluminum wall hook, arrow wall hook, cushion stainless steal coat wall hook, hooked on skyscrapers, and jackalope ceramic wall hanger 

And here’s how some of them are being used:

The arrow wall hook from CB2 is currently holding up some lovely art work. Since it’s so adorable, I wanted it to be more prominently displayed, and not covered up by coats or hoodies. Isn’t it the funnest hook ever?! I’ve got a soft spot for fun hookers!

You’ve seen this guy before. He’s an über functional hooker. I’ve put him right near our front door so that he can hold Ms. Nola’s leash and my man jewelries. He’s there when I need him! And he never bitches about his job… unlike some hookers I know!

IMG_5786In an effort to expand our closet space, I installed the leaning edge aluminum wall hooks from CB2 in our bedroom, where we had some blank wall space. Now I can show off my Louis Vuitton bags when Ms. Carrie Bradshaw* comes to visit (she’s very judgmental, in case you didn’t know). These hooks are definitely the sexiest hookers in town.

Okay, so those are the hooks currently at my disposal– now, let’s add to my collection, shall we? Thoughts about these naughty boys and girls:

hookers

A.) Square hooks from Crate and Barrel

B.) Smooth concrete wall hook from Dot & Bo

C.) Currency hook set from CB2

D.) Swivel wood mounted wall hook from Dot & Bo

I really like C, and I think they would be really functional above the door in our walk-in closet. There’s always room for hookers in the closet!

Do you like hooks? Are you a big ol’ hooker too? Are there any unusual or kinky uses for hooks that you’ve discovered? Please share immediately you silly hooker!

*OMG I miss those 4 hookers so much! Please pray that there will be a SATC 3! Light a candle at church this weekend, m’kay?
