Post Card Art Collection
A sense of place is so important in a hospitality setting so guests can get to know the city they're visiting. However, it's also a charming idea for a home, and it's unbelievably affordable. (What other art can you buy at 3 for $1??) So, visit a local drug store, card shop, or airport to find a collection of postcards that feature local images, illustrations, maps, etc. These post cards will likely be around 4x6" in size, and should fit easily into standard (read: affordable) picture frames. Use a variety of styles of frames for a more "collected" look, or unify the images in a more modern way by using the same style frame for all of them. Once framed, hang them in a group above a bed, table, or dresser, and enjoy a little local culture inside your home.

Peg and Board Coat Rack
The rack I installed in the mudroom could easily store items other than waders: coats and scarves in an entry, pots & pans in the kitchen, ribbon spools in a craft room. (Everyone has a craft room, right?...) Construction is simple. First, use self-drilling wood screws and a drill to attach a 2x4, cut to the length you desire, directly into the studs in your wall. Studs are typically 16" apart - Use a stud finder to locate them. (If you don't have a stud finder, a strong magnet can locate dry walls nails, which indicates a stud location.) Then, using a bit that's one size smaller than the diameter of your pegs, drill directly into the 2x4 at a slight downward angle to create the holes for your pegs. Next, using a mallet or hammer, tap the pegs into the holes - You can find pegs at a craft store, or you can buy dowels at the hardware store and have them cut to the length you prefer. Once your pegs are all tapped in, decide on a finish: raw for a rustic look, stained for a more finished appearance, or painted a playful color. When you're done, this is a project you can really hang your hat(s) on.
