One of the easiest ways to instantly double your hanging space in a closet is to add a double hang closet rod. You can buy one from the store but making a DIY version gives you the option to easily customize the height/length to fit your closet, plus it’s inexpensive, quick and fun to make your own!

What you need:
You can get everything you need at the hardware store: 1 hardwood dowel (1 1/4” diameter),  4-8 eye screws (2 for the rod, and the rest for the purses), chain (2 lengths of ~ 3.5 ft long), 4 chain links, s-hooks (for the purses)

Step 1: Cut Wood Dowel

Cut the dowel to the length that you need (you can have it cut at the hardware store or use a miter box and saw)
