Happy Wednesday Everyone!.
This week we are covering a few DIY projects for those of you looking to open up your first shop. This and the past DIY's are even good if your looking to spruce up your home. The clothes racks started as a home project for my daughter to hang up her clothes. When it came time to figure out what we wanted our racks to look like. We remembered that it was easy to make my daughters. Not to mention that they are gorgeous and fit into the theme of simplicity
On Monday I explained to you guys how to create a few adorable display tables. Those of which we are currently using in our La Conner Boutique. I actually also have similar tables out on my back porch. So even though I am using my clothing racks for commercial purposes. You can still build some yourself and use them as house décor/furniture.
When I realized that I did not want our beautiful long summer dresses to touch the floor. I decided that the clothing racks we would use in our boutique needed to be rather tall. Seeing as so our dimensions or on the larger side. However remember that the piping we use coming in many different sizes. So you always have the option to customize your rack.
This was our shopping list for one full clothing rack.
3 Common boards - 6 feet in Width by 6 feet in Length
3 2 x 4's boards - for the base
I used nails, but screws are always better.
4 steel or iron pipes
2 - 3 way connectors
2 - 90 degree connectors
Stain (Your Choice)
JB Weld Glue
I started this DIY by staining the wood and cleaning off the pipes. Once the pipes were clean and dry. I painted them black. Once the wood and piping was dry. I went on to cut the 2 x 4's into the size I needed them to b in order to build the base of my rack. The base was extremely important because we needed the base to be incredibly stable. On the racks we put into our boutique we did not add wheels to the bottom of the base. The reason is because I did not want the moving around. However I did add them to my daughters clothing rack. So when it comes to adding wheels or not adding wheels it is really up to you and what you want. Both ways worked out great for me.
Once everything was ready to be assembled. It was incredibly easy to take each part and put it together. I ended up using the JB Weld glue on the top across bar. This way I was able to ensure that the top across bar would not become loose and fall off. I did not feel the need to use it on the rack we have at home because it is significantly smaller and the worry of it hurting some one is not as great.
