clothing rolling rack storage DIY

Can y’all believe June is essentially over? If the calendar isn’t enough of an indication of summer’s arrival, the thermostat certainly is. And as usual, I (Claire) am falling into a shopping frenzy and tapping into the season’s best trends (I’m currently loving pattern play). My recent wardrobe additions have resulted in the need for some serious reorganization in my space-challenged abode. With closet space scarce, thought I’d use my next DIY to tackle storing my clothes in a way that makes them part of the decor. I’ve been fascinated with the look of garment racks for a while now, and after searching for inspiration, I’ve become even more excited to create my own. But first I’d love to hear from all of you: Which of these 4 racks would you like to see re-interpreted and recreated? Leave a comment with your thoughts and ideas, and stay tuned for the reveal in two weeks!

    IDK. First and last seem the easiest. I vote on the last one. Simple but has the space for shoes! This is perfect because just moved to NYC and I was going to buy one, but now I’ll wait for the DIY! Very excited to see it and try it myself!

  2. Jill says:

    Came across your blog this week and I loveee it ! I vote 2 or 3!

  3. Vicky says:

    I vote on #2! I love the look of the pipes.

  4. Alisha Payne says:

    Oh! Oh! I would love to see a combo of the first and second rack. Maybe the second one painted white??

  5. Camille Styles says:

    I loooove #1. So simple, and so chic.

  6. Big fan of the first one, love the simplicity and the colors, the third seems like it would be great in a laundry room. Excited about this DIY!

  7. my preference is #1 or #2..great idea, we need one of these!

  8. I like the first one!!! P.S. I just love the idea of garment racks in a house … feels like shopping everyday!

  9. Michelle Sereno says:

    Call me a rebel, but I like the #4! With #1 in a close second place.

    Can’t wait to see the final product Claire!

  10. Thanks everyone for your enthusiastic responses! I love all the opinions so far and am so excited to start this project!

  11. Jess says:

    I like the first one best!

  12. Diana says:

    Oh gosh, I LOVE #2. I also appreciate #3. Hmm…if I HAVE to choose. …#2.

  13. Kate says:

    I like # 4. If you do # 1 it seems like you need a stop on each end or your clothes will slide right off.

  14. Yaz says:

    Number 2!!!! And maybe number 3 :)

  15. Jennifer says:

    Definitely image #1 — love the simplicity and can imagine it working well with lots of different design styles.

  16. GawgusThings says:

    I’d love to see the first one transformed because that is currently what my poor guests have to use to store their clothes when they stay, so any ideas to make it prettier would be much appreciated!

    Number 2 please!

  18. Aunt Lez says:

    as a child of the 60s i must go with #4….it evokes an early Austin bohemian vibe that rocks!

  19. Kristin T says:

    I vote for one and three

  20. Chris Perez says:

    I’m a fan of #1 because it’s so simple and basically disappears against the wall.

    Maybe color dip the bottom 1/3rd in a bright color that complements a lot of the clothes you plan to hang on. I think a Tiff blue or Mint would look perfect.

  21. Jacqueline says:

    Love #1!

  22. Ashley Dunlop says:

    I loooove the second! Can’t wait for this tutorial – my closet is exploding!

    I prefer the 1st and last due to the simplicity of it as well as building it!

  26. Ali says:

    I absolutely love the wood & pipe clothes rack! I’ve seen similar things in a couple stores (namely Urban) and have always been intrigued!

  27. [...] future since I’m now the proud owner of a super chic garment rack! If you recall, two weeks ago I collected a few images of unique clothing racks and used them as inspiration for creating a [...]

  28. claire says:

    Definitely number 2! I love how weird and interesting the shape is.
