comment How do I install a coat rack on drywall over concrete?
I'm just going to buy a free standing hat rack and patch the wall. Why didn't I think of that before?

comment How do I install a coat rack on drywall over concrete?
Yes I'm quite unsure. The wall backs onto the elevator of a high rise apartment building. There could be concrete, but there could also easily be some other soundproofing layer. None of the holes I have are large enough to see into. All I can tell you is that it is most definitely denser than drywall. I'm assuming it runs the length of the wall because my stud finder shows the whole entire wall as a stud. And I can't drill into it with my 12$ power screwdriver or hammer into it (no I don't own a real drill).

I don't have any experience at all with a hammer drill and given the complication of the 3/4" drywall in front and the fact I'm still not 100% sure it even is concrete, I don't think this is think this is a possibility for me at this time. I'd try and hang it in a different (less then ideal) location, but then I have to deal with metal stud, which may or my not be there (gogo stud finder and your consistent but non-sensical results). Probably I'll just throw the coat rack away instead of risking having to patch another high traffic spot (my touchup paint isn't an exact match).
