No seriously! It's tiny! Look, photographic evidence -->

(I need a haircut. lol)

I had to move in January. I went from a normal sized closet to this tiny 'coat' closet...  Undecided I tried just putting one season of clothes in it and even got rid of some, but that didn't really help much. Solution...? A clothing rack!!  Grin I found these really nice ones on Etsy (here) but who has that kind of money?

Besides I'm a Crafter! So of course, I made my own!  Wink


I love it, love it, love it!!  Cheesy

It took me 3 weeks to get all the pieces and cost about $75. I used 3/4" black iron plumber's pipe. As soon as I had it all together I hung up every piece of clean clothing I could find. lol (I still need to switch out my winter clothes for my summer ones.) I may add a wood shelf and casters to the bottom eventually as I get the money for them. They're not really necessary though.

And that tiny closet? It will soon become crafty storage space. Yay!

Thank you Abbeeroad! Even making my own was a bit pricey for me, but can you imagine the shipping cost on something like that?  Shocked Whoa...
I kept mine simple but because everything just screws together I can always make it fancier later. And I am SO excited for more crafty space!  Grin
