So I'll openly admit that I'm kind of a nerd-girl.... When I saw these action figures shoved in the closet of my teens room my first reaction was "Mine!" He wasn't going to argue with the women helping him clean the disaster in his room.

Here's the link so you can raid your kids room and make your own!

They're clothes hooks? These would be brilliant for a kids room (mentally logs idea for future).

Using the picture hangers, I wouldn't hang anything too heavy on that. Coat hooks tend to get overloaded (at least around me, they do) so I try to screw them directly to a wall stud whenever possible.

Great job and awesome project!

Clever idea!  If they aren't strong enough for hooks, they make for interesting "art" on the walls!

As a variant, you could get a section of 1x4 or one of the decorative wooden plaques with routed edges (make your own if you can!) and paint then mount a few of these to that for a row of coathooks. This would make it easier to mount at least one point to a wall stud for strength. A coathook this large would probably need to be mounted to the studs for strength.

If they aren't strong enough for coats, you could probably get away with hanging keys on them! I neeeeeed a place for all of our keys. Hmmmmmm.
