I have been living for the past few months with no closet, so all of my dresses, skirts & jackets have been crammed into a drawer. Having to iron things before putting them on has not been pleasant, so I pushed for this project to jump ahead in our queue of projects, luckily Chris agreed.
I was inspired by this closet solution, so today we worked on making a simpler version.
This project cost us about $100 and took an hour or so to make.
You need: a piece of wood, galvanized pipes (two longer 5' pieces for the side and one shorter 3' piece for the top), the connecting corners for the pipes and the bases - all of these things are from Lowes (or major hardware store. You will also need wheels or some sort of feet for the closet, bolted screws and a drill.
First, cut your piece of wood to size and sand the edges.
Then we chose to stain our piece of wood. It would be awesome to use an old piece of distressed wood though, which you wouldn't need to stain.
To prepare the pipes, use steel wool to get off any marks and polish the metal.
Chris used his drill to attach a wheel to each corner of the piece of wood.
Connect the top bar to the sides using the elbow connectors.
Now you have yourself a mobile closet! I, of course, rushed to try it out.
The nice thing about this too, is you have a great place to store your shoes.
And you may remember, this matches our curtain rod, so it fits in with the room decor nicely.
