So My idea for a project is a hat rack. There are tons of recyclable materials that you could make a hat rack out of but PVC piping is a quality material that is recycled easily. It is easily found at building sites and in most peoples garages. It is plenty strong for the application of being a hat rack. Hat racks are necessary for a lot of people who own many hats like myself. I am constantly trying to find places to put them and they just pile up. I could have some hooks that I attach to the walls but I move a lot being in college and don’t want to be trying to remove them every time I move. I think there are opportunities to make this product very aesthetically appealing. With my initial sketches it will look very unique and with the right application of paint it will look very good. Here is an example of a hat rack that you can purchase from an online retailer.
Yes it is covered in cowboy hats. It will work for all hats though. Here is a sketch of what I would want mine to look like.
It will be angled to not be so uniform. It will have mass at the bottom to keep it stable and let it lean but be able to add weight.The hangers will be removable so that you can set stuff in front of it if you want. It will fit best in a corner!
