How to make a DIY clothes rod for your closet with a scrap piece of copper. An easy DIY project that gives you hanging space for clothes in a small closet.
– ¾" copper pipe (60 inches in length) – 4, ¾" copper tube straps – ¾" copper tube cap – pipe cutter – #8 flat washers – 3" wood screws
Step #1 I had to use wood screws and washers, and I knew they would be visible so I gave them a quick coat of copper spray paint. Once they were dry I was ready to start installing my sliding rod.
Step #2 The first thing we had to do was to determine the length of the rod. We did this by taking the measurement from the back wall of the closet to the outside trim.
Step #3 Next, I attached the copper tube cap on the end of the pipe that was going to be sticking out of the closet.
Step #4 Mounting the copper tube straps was our next step.
The straps were mounted equal distance between the front and back strap. They also need to be centered up and down so that the pipe could move freely.
