The reason I'm sharing this DIY is not because I'm enamored with the final product, which I actually am; rather, this DIY project from Design*Sponge is a really great starting point if you're up for crafting a coat rack with anything from vintage trophies to candle sticks to crystal door knobs. Continue reading for additional images, instructions and alternative materials.

Design*Sponge does a really fantastic job of explaining how to assemble and neatly finish the coat rack pictured above in their post DIY Project: Vintage Trophy Coat Rack.

While I don't totally object to the trophies, it's not something I can see myself hanging in the main living area of our home. It would be great for a kid's room, or at least a kid who is really into sports, but that doesn't necessarily have universal appeal. So...

...I wanted to share three object that do. Pictured here, from left to right: Vintage door knobs, vintage hooks and vintage drawer pulls are three types of objects that can be mixed together or featured alone that do have wider appeal.

What other objects could be used?
