Unless you build your own home, chances are the storage space in your current living arrangement aren’t exactly fit to your specific needs.
And when it comes down to clothing storage, it seems eveyone is looking for and needing more than what they have.
You can always buy more and more storage boxes. But you can’t always see what is in them, much less have to pull them out all the time. And buying more furniture costs more money, and takes up more space than what we have. An easy solution is to build a small clothing rod to fit in the corner of a room. Fill with your work clothes, or your constant go to items that are in rotation and it will become a life saver. And it doesn’t hurt that this DIY Copper Clothing Rack pretty eye catching!
(This was built according to the diminsions that I needed for my space)
5 Pieces of Lumber, measuring 6 foot in length. (1″x3″x6′). Cut down the last piece in half.
3/4″ 10 foot copper rod (cheaper to buy one long rod instead of indiviual pieces
Staple Gun or small nails and hammer
Gather all of your lumber and copper rod at your home improvement store. Most stores will cut all the lumber and copper rod down to size.
My local store will even drill holes if needed.
I had them make the holes 1″ to accomodate the 3/4″ copper pipe, making sure to double the holes on the last piece that was cut in half.
I also had them cut the copper pipe into thirds.
After all pieces have been cut to size, and holes have been drilled, lay out two large pieces and one small one.
Align holes and form a triangle.
Staple or nail into place, making sure that the holes stay aligned.
After you have made two sets of triangle end pieces, set each side up right, making sure to have support on each side.
Run the copper rods in through each set of holes.
After the rods are set in place, apply the E6000 between the rod and wood, making sure that it has proper support and is stable. I would highly recommend assembling and applying the E6000 close to the spot that you are going to want it placed.
Let set and dry according to time on tube of E6000.
After glue has dried. move if needed.
Gather clothes and place on rod.
