Needed an area at the cottage to hang coats and a place for shoes. The space was small - shoe rack could not be wider than 6 inches and 24 inches long. Used a small piece of oak, spray painted it black and added a few coat hooks. Built a custom shoe rack out of oak - so that the shoes were placed vertically. This was done because the rack could not be wider than 6 inches or it would prevent the door from opening.
