Laundry Room

One of my big goals this month is to get my Laundry room into shape.  Right now it's not funtioning to its full potential. 
You see, someone thought it would be a good idea to NOT put a coat closet in this house.  Some might find that an okay thing, but where oh WHERE do you put all the coats and junk?
  Right now they get left on the banister, door knobs, and yes, on the laundry room floor.
So I have decided it's time to whip it into shape!
Perfect for January right?  Whip it into shape...Get it?  I know bad...
My laundry room is on the main level of the house, it's not very big, and it's close to the main bedrooms.  It's also right off the garage door and kitchen.  So it becomes a main drop off zone.
  If the stuff is lucky enough to even make it in the laundry room or just right in front of it!  Which is usually the case.
My plan?
Paint something fun
Hang 6 coat hangers.  Why 6?  It will fit on the wall.
Put up a small rod for clothes to hang on to dry
Organize the cupboards
Something for the mail to land in

Any suggestions?

I'm very interested to see the end result :-) I have no ideas but need some for my laundry room too. We don't have a coat closet either, and winter time is the worse. I'm always picking up coats and sweatshirts. Let me know how it goes :-)

I want to whip my laundry room into shape too! There is so much I want to do with our house, it overwhelms me. I don't know if any of the things I want to do will ever get done. You're lots better at actually doing things. You should check out this darling laundry room (I want mine to look something like this, maybe one day :) )...
