From Coat Rack to Christmas Tree

Do you have a coat rack in your entryway?  If so, here's an idea on how you can decorate it for the holidays.  

This started as the wooden coat rack in my parents foyer. 
They were going to put a small Christmas tree in this spot when they thought...why not just decorate the coat rack?  They used garland and white lights and wrapped it around the rack.  They then added ornaments and bows and finally topped it with the angel that used to be on our tree when I was a child.
With a beautiful wreath on the coat closet door...the foyer is complete.
What a clever idea.  Have you decorated anything out of the norm?  Please share if you have.  What do you think of this idea?  Let me know.  I love and appreciate all of your comments.

Love it...Wish I could do that with my coat rack, but I'd have no where to put the 5,000 coats and backpacks....How my coat rack is still standing I will never know.....

Happy holidays!
