DIY garment rack

diy garment rack - smitten studioWe have a serious shortage of closet space around here and in the new house it is going to be even less, so I made myself a garment rack that I wouldn’t be ashamed to have out on display. Now my favorite items won’t get lost in the wardrobe abyss. Here are the supplies needed if you want to try this out for yourself.


1: 1/2″ Steel conduit pipe. (if you buy it from a hardware store like Ace or Do it Best, they will cut them down to the size you’d like and also thread them for you)
2: Flat black spray paint
3. 2 floor flanges
4. 2 elbow joints
5. 24 wood screws
6. 4 casters (only 2 shown)
7. wood base (I used an old armoire drawer front but most any wood would work. Mine was approx. 42″ x 14″)

Next up was screwing down the floor flanges to the top of the base, inserting the two pipes and the elbow joints, and finally the middle pipe. Ta-da!
