The shelf on top hiding the hanging rod looks much nicer than an exposed hanging rod. Don't like the soap and iron down low. [maybe the laundry room is our closet? or just all the hanging clothes in there.
I maybe like this idea with the wooden beam at the end of my bar. maybe the wine in on the side of the bar opening only. :) Diy Wine holder, (maybe bigger beam in natural looking wood where you cant see the bottle neck)
A good idea for a small bathroom, under hanging shelves for things like cotton balls, cotton swabs, etc. Also great in the kitchen, for a spice rack over the stove. Just hang jars from bottom of the cabinet.
