DIY Copper Hanging Wardrobe

It's no secret that I really love copper. It's beautiful, sleek, minimalist, and can inspire so many projects! Plus it's an affordable material unlike other metals. I've been inspired lately to take back my minimalist living lifestyle (as if I haven't been doing that already!) and purging my home of unnecessary things that no longer serve a purpose. Perhaps it's because P and I are a mere month and a half away from combining our lives together that's pushing it, or just a deep rooted need to feel clean. Either way, I'm certainly winning the war against conquering my wardrobe. It doesn't hurt that this project is seriously affordable and showcases all your beautiful clothes like the art they are!

For this project you will need:

1 copper tubing (I used 5') 1 coil of rope 2 S-hooks

And that's it! Most of my projects I really strive to keep simple, easy, and affordable and so far I believe I've managed that.

Steps:

Start threading the rope down through the copper tubing. Make sure that you have an even amount of rope on each side so when it hangs from the ceiling it is even. Measure about 3" away from the wall and screw in the S-hooks. Tie the rope in a Sailor's knot (shown here) and attach to the S-hooks. Hang your favorite pieces and you've got a new hanging wardrobe!

This wardrobe has definitely uped my closet game over the past few weeks since installing it. Not only do I have more room in my closet for clothes I'm not really wearing right now, but I get to utilize my favorite pieces into a capsule wardrobe and let them be shown off. It doesn't hurt that I'm making more room for P's clothes too!

Would you make this hanging wardrobe? Let me know in the comments! Also, I've been thinking of showcasing my closet and it's layout. Any thoughts on this?
