Storage: Simple S Hooks

We’re always looking for ways to get more use out of the things we already own. S hooks are a low-tech, versatile storage solution that can be used with shelving, ceiling hooks, storage rails—even a simple tree branch as a coat rack (above, photo via Ferm Living).

Love This? Never Miss Another Story.

In my narrow, no storage bathroom, we have a towel rack that holds about one and a half towels.
Seeing as neither of us will make do with a hand towel after a shower, I sewed loops mid way along the length of four towels. I used s hooks to hang. Now I have plenty of towels at the ready.

Wow....I love this idea. Especially the one with the big stick and hanging clothes. Very natural looking. Thank you so much for the ideas. Namaste
