The Art of Hats

   

M has as ever growing collection of hats and for some time now we had been trying to figure out how to store them. He didn't want them to be upstairs in our closet.. he picks his hat in the morning before going to work. He was also worried about preserving the shape and structure of his beloved fedoras. We have already laid one.. his favorite to rest.

An empty space above our Ikea shoe cabinet and some clear push pins, in less that an hour we had our solution. And it looks pretty :)

p.s we are currently getting ready for a massive snow storm, expecting over a foot of snow and strong gales. And to make matters worse over the weekend our heater stopped working. We are hoping to get it repaired today.. Stay warm my fellow East Coasters.. Stay safe.

UPDATE: Heat is up and running :)

A hat for every season and occasion. Sure beats baseball caps.

I really like that, Hena. I have a coatrack on the wall in the foyer which we use for hat storage, but nobody here wears any particular hat every day. We each have two, a winter hat and a sun hat. I've always wished I had a hat style, though. I think hats are very cool. Stay safe in that snow!

Thanks Jennifer. He surprisingly pulls them off really well and wears them all winter. I have a straw hat that I think I can pull off, he bought me a fedora once which is up on the wall but I never feel comfortable in it. I feel like I am trying to be someone else.
Our heat is up and running thank god.. the while the boys are excited, hopefully this is the last snow

Displaying the hats is a great way to store and show them off at the same time.
Hope you got your heater repaired. We didn't get anywhere as much snow as predicted in NYC.

Good luck riding out the storm. We've had very confusing weather here. I like your storage solution, and if it doubles as wall art that is a bonus! :) XO - Alexandra
