Kiki’s room has been a work in progress in this new house. I’m obsessed with dress up clothing for her and needed some storage ideas since her closet is tiny. While browsing Pinterest, I saw a few examples of a kids clothing rack and asked the husband to put one together for me. Luckily he was in the mood for some cutting and drilling, and after doing a rough sketch, was able to build one from scratch!
I showed him a few pictures of what I wanted and he dug around in the garage. A quick trip to the hardware store was made to purchase a dowel, however, we had a ton of scrap pieces from the farmhouse table to utilize for the rest of the clothing rack. My husband was able to piece it together using those scrap pieces but I’ve included a full shopping list if you are starting from the kids clothing rack from scratch.
4 – 1in x 2in x72in Pine Boards
1 – 1in x 12in x 48in or 72in Common Board
1 – 1in x 10in x 48in or 72in Pine Board
1 – 3/4in by 48in wood dowel rod
Make 4 cuts of the 1×2 boards at 52inches
With the scrap pieces create 2 pieces at 10 inches and 2 pieces at 12 inches
Cut the 1×10, the 1×12, and the dowel rod at 28.5 inches
Use 1 1/4 inch wood screws to attach pieces. We did a teepee style of rack.
Right now I’m using the clothing rack to store Kiki’s dresses and shoes but A has asked for one in her room so we are working on a second clothing rack. Kiki loves arranging her dresses and we have adorable storage piece that was an easy project to put together!
