A DIY Clothing rack idea by Karla Amadori
Ah, yes, the eternal struggle of having more stuff than space. It’s like we’re all playing a game of Tetris, but instead of blocks, we’re trying to fit all our crap into a tiny apartment. But fear not because we’ve got a nice offer for you!
You can have a 2-in-1 unit that simultaneously accommodates your clothes and stores your shoes. It’s like a multitasking superhero, but for your bedroom. And it’s not as hard as it sounds.
- First, you’ll need to measure and cut the wood into four pieces for the feet of the clothing racks. Make sure they’re all the same height, or else you might end up with a lopsided unit.
- Then, saw the top part diagonally, about 24 cm, and cut the upper ends about 6 cm. Sounds easy enough, right?
- Next, take another piece of wood as a horizontal support for hanging clothes. Drill some holes at a distance of 4 cm from each other. And just like that, you’ve got yourself the beginning of a clothes rack unit!
Now, it’s time to assemble all the pieces.
- Attach the legs to the upper horizontal piece with wood glue and screws. And don’t forget to cut two more pieces of wood as bottom supports and support for the shoe rack.
- Drill some holes, then attach the rope to the shoe rack’s base. It’s like we’re MacGyver, but for bedroom organization.
- Finally, take the last 22 cm of wood to support the side legs and secure them to the unit with screws. And just like that, you’ve got a fancy new 2-in-1 clothing and shoe rack unit!
But wait, we’re not done yet.
Don’t forget to fill the screw holes with wood filler, sand it down, and paint the unit with the color of your choice. Because what’s the point of having a fancy new unit if it doesn’t match your bedroom decor, right?
And there you have it. A simple and easy way to organize your clothes and shoes in a small space. Just don’t forget to give yourself a pat on the back for a job well done. And if all else fails, there’s always the “throw everything on the floor” method, remember.
We won’t judge.
