Ideas from the barn

I have finally finished my bag/coat hangers. Down south my cousin has an amazing farm where I sometimes go to, mainly loiter, eat oranges till I feel like exploding and throw the peels on the dirt. In one of the barns hiding in the dark and dust I saw tools hanging from cut off bits of branches and straight away I thought they would make for great coat hangers. So I found some branches lying around from olive trees that had been pruned and off and to sawing I went. For weeks they caught rain and then a little sunshine and slowly I peeled off the outter softer layer of bark. When they dried out completely I varnished them. Today, finally they are keeping our coats up in the air, barnstyle.
