My daughter needed a small portable clothing rack for a dance competition. Make this one out of PVC pipe and fittings in an hour for about $10. Don't use glue and you can take it apart for storage and transport.
- Two 10 foot lengths of 3/4 inch PVC pipe
- Six 90 degree elbows (3/4 inch)
- Two tees (3/4 inch)
- Two couplers (3/4 inch)
- Some colored duck tape fro decoration
- A saw
