Y’all ready for this? It’s time to get organized and to look good doing so! After a long day at work, it’s so easy to walk into your house and plop your purse, hat and scarf on the back of a chair or even on the floor. Yikes! Not the way you want to keep your house organized, right? Well, if that scenario strikes true for you, check out this easy DIY accessory rack we created with Lowe’s. All you need is a few tools, materials and 15 minutes to create a stylish accessory rack for your house.
And if you’re in the Bay Area, you can learn how to make this accessory rack first hand by heading to Lowe’s at 491 Bayshore Boulevard this Saturday July 26th from 9am to 1pm!

RSVP to reserve a time slot by emailing PublicRelations@Lowes.com.
– wood (5/8 inch thick)
– paint brushes
– Phillips head screw driver
1. Cut your wood to size. The hardware store can do this for you.
2. Tape your design and then paint your wood board. Let the paint dry.
3. Layout your knobs and handles, drill holes in your wood board and then screw in your knobs and handles.
Decide where you want to hang your accessory rack and determine the appropriate length and width. Head down to your local Lowe’s and get some lumber cut to size. We recommend a ⅝-inch thickness, but you’ll want to pick out your knobs and handles first to see the length of the hardware. You want to make sure the wood isn’t too thick or thin for the hardware.
When you get home, tape a design on your wood. Then paint.
After the paint dries, arrange your knobs and handles. Then drill holes in your wood and screw the knobs and handles in place.
Hang your rack on your wall and you are G2G (good to go, duh).
Here’s a second version we made. Have fun with the tape and paint to make it your own style.
Don’t you feel more organized and stylish just looking at those scarves and bags all organized in a row? ;)
And don’t forget, if you live in the Bay Area you can learn how to make this rack first hand by coming to the Lowe’s at 491 Bayshore Boulevard this Saturday July 26th from 9am to 1pm!
