Intro: Easy Clothes Rack for My Dresser
This is a clothes rack I wanted to add to the old dresser I am currently using. As I rescued it from the fire pit, a little modification was not going to hurt it, in fact, it is exactally what I needed to clean up the house.
for this project you need
something for a base - I chose a 2x2 because it needed to be small
something to hang clothes on - I found some large screws in the garage, i thought they looked neat
a saw of some kind to cut the wood - i used a chop saw
a way to attach the hangers - mine was a drill
a can of paint to make it look pretty
the woodshop at TechShop should has more than enough resouces for a simple project like this.
Step 1: Gather Up the Materials
I found a 2x2 laying in the garage taking up space, so i figured it was a good piece to start with, I then looked through the drawers in the toolbox to find some matching screws.
I found 3 that matched, I knew that the rack didnt need to be that long, as it was a shallow dresser, and I only needed to hang a few things.
Step 2: Build and Paint It
Once the pieces were cut, I measured out even spacing for the 3 long screws. and CAREFULLY screwed them in slowly, trying not to crack the board.
once they were put in, I shot it with some black paint so it dosent stick out too much.
Step 3: Assembly
Once it was dry, I took it downstairs to the dresser. I figured if i put it near the top, my clothes would stay off the ground, so I put it right up to the top and screwed it in from the bottom.
I was going to screw it in from the inside of the dresser, but the drawers are not removable.
Now it looks decent, and my space is a little less cluttered.
