How To Build A Garment Rack


We all want more storage, right? That’s why I built a garment rack that will eventually go in our basement. We have so much overflow that we ended up using all the closet space in our office for extra jackets, wedding dresses, etc. Doesn’t help that since we have an old house, we have some pretty small closets. Eventually I would love to get some canvas hanging bags for when storing out of season items on this.This was my first time working with piping, and I loved it!
Supplies that are needed.
Working from the right to the left, I screwed the floor flange into the boards and then started adding the piping.
With the right floor flange screwed down, and the piping screwed down.
Halfway done!
