I LOVE copper and could not be more stoked on its ever growing popularity within the home decor world. Being a longtime copper fan-girl, I’ve always wanted to try to DIY something with it, but it seemed a little daunting. For my first go, I wanted something that would be simple and easy for everyone, and let me get real with you: This is literally the easiest thing I’ve ever made! All said and done, it took under 15 minutes to construct. It’s also the perfect solution to living in a space that doesn’t come with a built-in closet, which is a very common city problem.
- (2) 60-inch copper pipes
- (4) 24-inch copper pipes
- (1) 36-inch copper pipe
- clear epoxy
- (2) copper pipe tees
- (2) copper pipe elbows
To create your base, attach two of the 24-inch pipes together with one of the tees, using the epoxy to adhere together. Repeat this step with the other two 24-inch pipes.
Place the two bases aside and give them some time to dry. I used five-minute epoxy, because I’m super impatient, and it worked like a charm! Next, attach the 36-inch pipe to the two copper elbows; this will be where you hang your clothes from.
At this point, you’re almost done. See, easiest project ever! Attach the two 60-inch pipes to the two bases.
Now, using the epoxy, attach the bases to the top piece.
In just four steps, you’re finished!
So minimal chic!
Seriously loving this.
