Avoid necklace-untangling nightmares: Sort, organize, and display beads and chains on the pegs of a horizontally mounted tie rack. Many wooden versions have hooks about an inch apart and can separate dozens of necklaces with no overlap.
Display scarves: Change it up based on the season.
Keep dish towels and pot holders within arm's reach: Install the rack horizontally on a kitchen wall and hang everything right where you need it.
Organize a desktop: Place a wooden rack flat on a table and use the spaces between the pegs to sort CDs or mail.
