Over on eHow: DIY Industrial Pipe Garment Rack
It's no secret that homes built back in the early 1900's had very little closet space, and in our house it's no joke. We're always looking for new ways to creatively provide more storage solutions around the house (like our stacked suitcase nightstand, kitchen locker console and repurposed insulator wall rack). In that ongoing quest, we're sharing the full step-by-step process for how we built this industrial-chic rolling clothing rack in our latest project post for eHow...
We use the small extra bedroom next to our master as a walk-in closet of sorts, so this exposed garment rack only adds to the closet-type feel of the space (you might remember this small room from our recent chandelier makeover post). The construction of the rack is very similar to the way we built out our kitchen locker console — we were even able to use the same cherry-finish stain for the wooded base.
It was simple to make with a few plumbing pipes, a wooden panel and caster wheels, all from the hardware store — the trick is putting everything together in the correct order!
We're loving the modern-industrial look of the rack, and the added closet storage we now have upstairs! See more pics and get the full project details with styling tips right here, on eHow.
