DIY Pipe Clothing Rack

Did you get to take a tour of our new office space on What’s up Wednesday’s post?? If not check it out here!! We have been busy transforming the space with lots of paint, sanding and fun new projects. One of the rooms in the office will be our “showroom” where we will be able to show off fabulous pieces from locals whom we love. We are SO excited about this partnership, more to come on that soon! But another item we will be “showcasing” are our oh so fashionable aprons and jackets. Believe it or not people often ask to buy them at events! After a few peeps asking we thought, heck why not have zesters sporting some fun garb. SOOOO with that we will soon have our online shop with some awesome swag for you! (just in time for the holidays might I add) Of course we needed a fun way to display the aprons and jackets so we set out to make a clothing rack that would fit our rustic and industrial theme in the shop. Check out this easy tutorial….


Wooden plank (we scored this scrap wood from a wood working yard)

Four wheels

One flange


Two 24″ Pipes

One 48″ Pipe

One “T” Pipe connector

***UPDATE*** Since doing this project we have discovered this amazing company, Blackfriars Ironworks, that sells pipes that are already cut, cleaned and threaded! I will say that the galvanized pipes I originally used are smelly, sticky and hard to clean (after all they are meant for plumbing- not furniture). I would highly suggest grabbing some pipes from Blackfriars Ironworks to save time and headache, plus there are some very cool ready to build projects on their website too as well as different pipe color options- hello bronze pipes!!


First I assembled my “T” with the pipes and the T connector to create my rack and arms, this was a simple screw in…


Next I drilled in the wheels to the bottom of the wood plank…


Once I had the wheels secure and my “T” in place I wanted the wood to really “pop” so I did a quick coat over the wood with some polyurethane….


Voila! I can’t wait to go hang some Zesty swag!!


This would be great in a closet or laundry room too!

Happy building!
