Intro: Callum's Awesome Coat-Hanger
This coat hanger is a simple coat hanger, however it will add style to your house. It is modern, funky and generally quite eye catching. I personally am one of those people who suffer from 'always having a messy bedroom', or at least, I always DID have a messy room. Now thanks to the coat hanger, I can pick my coat up of the floor, and put it where it should be. But this isn't JUST about me. You yourself can put it wherever you want in your house, personalise it, and magically, it will keep that area tidy, WITH STYLE! I really recommend you try this product and I hope you enjoy building it. Thank you.
