Clothes Hanger

About: Stubled upon this site, its exactly what the internet is missing. Cant wait to get my hands dirty on these projects.

No closet, no wardrobe, no problem. Make this sweet industrial looking clothes hanger for under 30 bucks.

Step 1: The Materials You Will Need.

-shower curtain rod
-Steel strapping
-small nuts and bolts
-an end cap, you have to be creative on this one I used a metal fridge magnet.

Step 2: The Tools

-Hack saw
-Metal cutter
-Screw drivers

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

Make it nice and tight so it clamps down on the curtain rod.

Step 5: Get Er Done

Attatch the rod and then the strapping for support.

Step 6: Find a Nice End Cap.

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!
