I created one of these the other day, out of necessity, without really realizing what it was. A launch pad! My husband has started a new job with the railroad and he has a LOT of equipment: heavy coat, hats, lantern, lunch sack, backpack, radio and heavy duty boots (with spikes right now, yikes!) that he needed to take off and put on and remember to take with him as he leaves for work. There is not a lot of room in our entryway, so I made use of an over-the-door hook/hanger and it has been working great! How nice that a simple hook could make such a difference!
