DIY Floating Clothing Rack with Shelving

To get the most out of my wardrobe, I need to have my clothes displayed in a way in which it’s easy to see what’s what- if it’s out of sight, it’s definitely out of mind. Living in a small condo with limited closet options meant a) purging a lot of stuff and b) getting creative with storage options.

Our bedroom closet is small and poorly designed, which left us looking for alternate storage options: i.e a dresser and a garment rack. After destroying a few with the weight of our clothing, I decided it was time to look into designing a more permanent solution.

What You’ll Need

In terms of building it, I don’t think it was terribly difficult- but I also didn’t do much.

  1. Isolate the studs in the wall and mark them
  2. Measure and mark the desired height for the shelves
  3. Set up the top floating shelf first, then the lower one
  4. Install the 3 rod brackets underneath the second shelf (where the studs are) and fix into shelf
  5. Insert the rod and re-organize hangers and clothing
