Wonderful Wardrobe & Clothing Rack DIY Projects

When you live in a small home, closet space can not only be limited, sometimes it’s simply non existent! And depending on where you live in the world, that actually may be the norm. (We’re a little spoiled for space here in the U.S. folks…) So if you are looking for space to hang those dresses, skirts, blouses and suits… without cramming them into the “permanent wrinkle” zone, then give these wardrobe and clothing rack DIY projects a try to stretch that space!




Our first project below, is from ‘Ana White‘. Learn how to build a clothes rack/ industrial style closet system! This project is a one day deal folks, an inexpensive and easy build for all you “gotta have it now” DIY’ers. (Yes, my hand is up!) Ana has the free plans for you as well!

Lovin’ this French country wardrobe rack from ‘Ana White’s’ reader posts. We are thinking this is adapted from her plans for her armoire. Unfortunately, the reader who submitted it didn’t clue us in on which of her plans they used! This is a nice way to keep the wardrobe clean looking with the closing door.
