The Pieces on This Chess Set Coat Rack are Immovable

 |  |

Whoa, nice rack! If you are a big-time chess fan, hang up your coat on this cool wooden chess board coat rack. It’s a big checkmate in the home decor wars. It was created by Etsy seller CreativeHolz.

These pieces look pretty cool and are made with care. Each individual chess piece is individually screwed into the board for maximum strength. It makes a great gift for chess fans who need a new place to hang their coats, hats and other things.  It comes in different kinds of wood and player positions. The ones shown are the ‘Caro-Kann defense’ and ‘Italian Opening.’ I have no idea what those mean since I’m at a checkers level, but I assume it’s impressive so consider me impressed.

The shelf on top makes it even more useful. Use it for things like sunglasses and keys. I just wish it had one of those chess timers so that when you hang your coat you can slap it, then when you put your coat back on, you can slap it again. Don’t buy a plain old coat rack like a pawn. Buy one worthy of a king. It’ll set you back between $140 – $160 over on Etsy.
