DIY | HANGING CLOTHES RACK

HOLA HOLA!!

I recently moved into the most charming old Victorian style home, but with its charm came  less closet space! (You can’t have it all!). Even though I donated a lot of stuff, I still needed more storage space. Mainly rack space, but I didn’t want it to bulk up my dressing room. So, I decided to building my own hanging clothes rack, sort of like a boutique. And it turned out amazing, I was honestly very proud.

Here’s what you need to make it!

 You can find it all at The Home Depot.

1″in x 50″in Plain Steel Rod

7 ft Stainless Steel Wire Rope

1 Set, Aluminium Ferrules

4 1/4″in Cobra Anchors

2 Wire Ring Anchor Point

All for under $25!

Extra tools:

Power Drill

Wire Cutters

Pliers

Ladder?

Tip: Home Depot can cut the steel rod at any size you want.

Hold the steel rod against the ceiling and make a mark (with pen or pencil) at each end, on that same mark hold the wire ring and make two marks in each hole.

Then install the cobra anchors on your marks. Using your power drill, pierce the ceiling using the tip of the driller toggle and screw it into the ceiling, then slide the body through.

Insert the machined screw through the wire ring anchor “hole”, then screw clockwise into the anchor until firmly in place. Repeat this step to install both wire rings.

Now take one of the steel ferrules and slide one end of wire rope through.

Loop the wire rope through the wire ring anchor, then slide the same end of the wire rope through the ferrule and hold.

Using the pliers crimp (press) the ferrule tightly, so that the wire can’t pull through. You will need to repeat these steps at the other end of the hanging clothes rack.

Take the wire rope then pull it through both the steel rod, and the wire anchor. While you hold the steel rod repeat the last steps and install the other ferrule.
