You're gonna look at wooden dowels totally differently after seeing these 6 DIYs

Wooden dowels aren't usually the first thing to come to mind when thinking of materials for DIY projects, but they're actually incredibly useful and versatile!
They can be used to make so many things, from trivets to wall art to chandeliers. Check out these projects for some truly great ideas!
Simple wood coat rack (h/t Almost Makes Perfect)
This simple wood coat rack is just the thing you need in your entryway! I love the combination of natural wood and white paint, but wouldn't it also look great with gold-dipped ends?
Expandable dowel trivet (h/t Earnest Home Co.)
You might not think you need a trivet, but you'll change your mind as soon as you make this one and use it for the first time! It even has a rope loop on one end so you can hang it on the wall when you're not using it.
Dowel chandelier (h/t Honest to Nod)
This colorful dowel chandelier is so playful and unique — I definitely want one! The one shown here was made for a playroom, but it would look great in your dining room or living room as well.
Modern tassel wall hanging (h/t Homey Oh My)
This tassel wall hanging is simple to make, but it has a big impact! Black is so classic, but I think this piece would look really good done in different colors as well.
DIY blanket ladder (h/t Francois et Moi)
This DIY blanket ladder is the perfect place to store all your extra blankets! The ladder made by this blogger is pretty big, but if you live in a small space, you could easily copy the idea and make a scaled-down version.
Wooden dowel teepee jewelry holder (h/t Dwell Beautiful)
This wooden dowel teepee jewelry holder is such a cute way to display all your favorite jewelry! The gold-dipped legs are an especially nice touch.
Don't ignore the old food tray. Watch how you can upcycle it:
Turn cheap crates into a beautiful coffee table
Pegboard storage box
This project is brilliant if you don't have a lot of space. It will make your life more organized. Just follow along in the video below.
