Every time I come accross one of these (overpriced)tripod coat racks in a design furniture store, I remind myself how DIY-able they are and that I should make one. My favorite interior-design blogger Annaleena already did using used three branches which she painted black. Today I put my own spin on the tripod rack in my favorite shades and materials; the usual white and metal, it always works. As it was too hard to get holes in the metal tubes I tied them together tightly with tie rips, which I later covered with metal foil tape. Doing this DIY literally took 10 minutes. The variations for this rack are endless! You could use branches like Annaleena or any metal or wooden bars and finish it off with a leather cord or coloured rope.

*update: The rack looks as if it is held together by silver tape. It looks in progress, in construction and I quite like that about it :)

Love it, but I would personally have left the foil out! Thanks for the great idea.

This is so simple yet so genius!

Great DIY for someone who loves the minimalistic styling. I find that a lot of minimalistic styled furnitures are so expensive and overpriced. This is a great idea, especially since I am moving to my own apartment soon.

sara said...

Great DIY project as always, but as an architecture student I have to admit that I always prefer "construction" uncovered :) It could be neat if you tried using your bended plexiglass combining construction and aesthetics maybe?

Fabita Punk said...

You should have used a bigger pvc tube to hide the union. You just cut it like a bracelet and then "clip it" :)

Sophia said...

It looks really like art! Beautiful decor ;)

TR said...

i love this idea. where did u get the metal tubes from?

hiPop said...

love how ad hoc it is!

The hardest part to figure out was the hook part, but I figured there must be some sort of premade hook-type-thing at a hardware store.
