Step 3: Cut the Shower Rod

Dont make the rod to long, half the length should be more then enough.

Step 4: Fasten the Strapping

Like I said this was a fridge magnet I just happened to have and it fit perfect. This project was my own design and my first instructable so I welcome any comments or suggestions to make it better.

This is an absolutely awesome idea! I wonder though if it may be cheaper to use a galvanized pipe with the flange and end cap that are pre-made to fit? It would still be an industrial look and very cool, in my opinion! :) Great idea!

Great space saver especially where you just have a wall sized for clothes to hang and don't want or can't put a bar hanger between two walls. I can make use of lots of places to hang more clothes. Thanks.

Excellent, I have a wardrobe but this is much more awesome! :)
I was thinking of making something like this but I was not sure how... and then I stumble on this! Yay!

I really like this. My house is a former boarding home that was converted into a single family dwelling, so we are long on bedrooms and short on closets. This is great for a person like myself who can cut a shower rod in two but can't so much build a closet from scratch. Thanks!!

Thanks for the comments. I didnt use drywall anchors or fasten to a stud. They both would make the hanger stronger but it seems to be very sturdy without them.

Very nice. Did you fasten the strapping at a stud, or are you using drywall anchors?

Excellent instructable. I myself don't happen to have a closet, a wardrobe, or anything of the type. I can certainly see myelf making 2-3-4 of these in my bedroom. Excellent job, all in all!
