We’ve been playing around with copper in the studio a lot recently, it’s just such a great material because it’s so incredibly cheap from your local hardware store, but it adds a sense of elegance just about any project you use it in. Hanging copper racks aren’t exactly new but we recently created a layered one in a triangle shape and I thought it would be worth sharing with you. As a lover of symmetry, I can’t help but be drawn to the shape, and the best thing about this rack is that it looks a lot harder to make than it actually is! And did I mention it costs $10 in total to make? Read on to see how.
On my rack (what I’m taking to Vietnam): Top to bottom – DIY cut off shorts (3 pairs!), Faithfull Romper, Zulu & Zephyr Top, Faithfull Crop Top, Spell Designs Crop Top, Grana Tank, Winona Romper, Faithfull striped romper, Leopard print flats (my own design – stay tuned!), Market Panama Hat, Coach Bag, Furla Make Up Bag, J Crew flats.
I’m heading heading to Vietnam this weekend and the above is what I think will be coming along with me – I’ll be following my recent travel packing guide obviously! If you have any tips for Hoi An I would love to hear. 🙂
DIY Copper Clothes Rack
- Two lengths of copper pipe (ours were 1.2 m and 60 cm – 1.4 yards and 0.7 yards)
1. Cut your rope to size, we used about 5 metres (5.5 yards) for this. Then, thread it through your longer piece of pipe until the pipe sits roughly in the middle of the rope. Then, thread the smaller piece of pipe onto the rope at one end.
2.You then want to add the other end of the rope through that same small piece of pipe so that the smaller piece of pipe has two lengths of rope going through it in different directions. We added a chop stick to the second end of rope to get it through past the first piece of rope.
3. Feed the rope through the other end of the shorter pipe.
4. Connect the two pieces of rope at the top to form a triangle.
Hang it and away you go!
