DIY Pipe Clothing Rack

7 Materials
1 Hour

Did you get to take a tour of our new office space on What’s up Wednesday’s post?? If not check it out here!! We have been busy transforming the space with lots of paint, sanding and fun new projects. One of the rooms in the office will be our “showroom” where we will be able to show off fabulous pieces from locals whom we love. We are SO excited about this partnership, more to come on that soon! But another item we will be “showcasing” are our oh so fashionable aprons and jackets. Believe it or not people often ask to buy them at events! After a few peeps asking we thought, heck why not have zesters sporting some fun garb. SOOOOoooo with that we will soon have our online shop with some awesome swag for you! (just in time for the holidays might I add) Of course we needed a fun way to display the aprons and jackets so we set out to make a clothing rack that would fit our rustic and industrial theme in the shop. Check out this easy tutorial…. Photo Credit Anya McInroyOriginal Block Link
First I assembled my “T” with the pipes and the T connector to create my rack and arms, this was a simple screw in…
Next I drilled in the wheels to the bottom of the wood plank…
Once I had the wheels secure and my “T” in place I wanted the wood to really “pop” so I did a quick coat over the wood with some polyurethane….
Voila! I can’t wait to go hang some Zesty swag!!

Suggested materials:

  • Wooden Plank  (We scored our wooden plank from a scrap wood working yard!)

    I want to have a yard sale. But I don't have anything to hang my nice clothes. Would this be good 4 that. And how long can u make this.

      I was wondering about this for garage sale items too. I was also thinking that if you had a pool you could use it to hang towels on - we don't but it might make a decent coat rack for the winter coats.

    Any idea what the final cost would be?

    Will this tip over if weight isn’t evenly distributed on both arms?

    I love this pipe rack. Just the thing I need in my laundry room. Surely would make it easier to hang clothes instead of piling them up. LOVE IT.
