Simple and minimalist plumbing tube wardrobe racks
We just can’t tell you how much we love this DIY. It’s neat, simple but has a great visual impact.
We found this Clothing Rack DIY on Love Aesthetics and fall in love with it. The realization is actually pretty simple, the rack is made from simple plumbing tubes. This standalone wardrobe rack stands by laying on the wall and is the perfect example of less is more. If like us you like white, minimalist and modern furnitures you will love this DIY. The detail that makes all the difference ? The gold brass plumbing tube joints.
The second DIY below has a quite similar look but is less minimalist due to the four feet and bigger white painted plumbing tube joints. This DIY clothing rack is a standalone and doesnt need to lay on the wall like the one above. Depending on your place it might be easier to use. Discover it on Weekday Carnival blog.
Then, the third DIY comes from My DIY Family and its originality comes from the fact that the bearing is directly attached to the wall. The angle of attachment of the rod gives an atypical style to this open wardrobe and a “designer furniture” effect.

Industrial DIY copper and concrete clothes rack
This DIY explains to you how to create a copper concrete clothes rack. You will need some copper pipes, concrete mix, plastic boxes, and some paint. The execution is pretty easy, you just need to connect your pipes together, to mix the concrete in the plastic boxes and to stick the pipe into it to create the feet.
The DIY clothing rack on the right below uses the same combination of copper pipe and concrete feet but in a different way.
Then if you like the copper look but want to mitigate it, you can decide to paint the pipe in any color of your liking. On our side, we would probably go for white. Note that you can also use special concrete paint to paint the concrete block. The DIY below on the left comes from Hommie and is created with copper plumbing joint and wooden stick. We love its very delicate look !
The open wardrobe will allow you to display your most beautiful clothes, shoes, and bag in a stylish way. However, if you are someone messy, avoid it. An open wardrobe will immediately create an overall feeling of untidiness in your room or home.
Our tip : Leave space between each piece of fashion will accentuate the minimalist style of the decor and give a touch of modernity to the room.
