First let me just say I stumbled on one of the most amazing blogs Smile and Wave. I love her style, projects, and well everything! She had this tutorial for a garment rack made out of basic materials so I thought it looked easy enough to complete within a few hours and it was practical.
My dolls have been accumulating these cute tutu skirts that are their fav to play dress up in, but we would just stuff them in a box when they were done which was kind of an eyesore. I thought if they were neatly displayed and accessible at their level they were more likely to play with them and put them away..and guess what? I was right!
So according to Rachel from S&W these are all the materials you need:
- 4 - 1" x 3" x 6' poplar boards,
- 3 - 1/2" x 48" poplar dowel rods,
- drill with 1/2" and 1/8" bits, 2 - screw eye hooks,
- 2' of chain, wire cutters,
- pliers, hand saw (or miter saw),
- pencil, tape measure,
- protective eye wear,
- 80 grade sand paper,
- primer and paint (optional).
I was naughty and didn't use protective gear and opted for zip ties instead of chain and screw eyes.
I suppose I'm lazy and impatient and wanted it done fast.
It was my first time using a drill all by myself..whoohoo! As this was my result:)
here are those zip ties I was telling you about..
this was a easy and fun little project:)
thanks for stopping by!
