Project Post 15: Pipe & Pallet Clothes Rack

I titled this as a project post, but I'm not going to give you step-by-step instructions on how to make this. Partly because it's self-explanatory, and partly because I wasn't around for the assembly because it was a gift for me and done in top secret :)

I know you've seen these around - they are in a lot of retail spaces right now.

I snapped these pictures with my iphone and sent them to Tyler, telling him I wanted a variation of this. We have some old pallets and I wanted a pallet base with casters, so it would be easily movable (instead of the T'd-off base seen above)(that's not really a term but I bet you know what I mean).

After I saw these, I searched Pinterest for something similar and got a lot of results. Here are some that I pinned to my "projects" board:

Original sources here (in respective order): Rack 1, Rack 2, Rack 3, Rack 4, Rack 5.

And here's mine, complete with snapshots of it out in the middle of beautiful scenery, because that's how everyone photographs their Christmas presents, right? Totally normal.

It's just made with 3/4" galvanized threaded pipe and fittings, and boards from an old pallet. We had a few old pallets that my dad gave us and Tyler picked the best-looking planks from them to use. These have a few holes in them, which I love, and the color is great too.

{Merry Christmas to me! :)}
