Well here’s a super smart way to reuse what is generally the only salvageable part of broken umbrellas. Dutch firm Schroot Hoop Design creates these surprisingly attractive coat racks from old umbrella handles. With piece of wood and a drill, you could DIY this one at home. Of course you don’t have to hang coats on them; you can use them to hold more umbrellas too. Or as I now call them- future hooks.
