Industrial farmhouse pipe coat hooks

I’m still busy assessing how my boy is using his room.

What I thought would be a good place for a desk or table? I’m having second thoughts.

I think he needs a clothes hanging area more.

As in, a bunch of hooks within an easy toss.

As in… maybe his clothes won’t land on the floor so often… a mom can dream, right?

So this little pipe dream (heh) came to mind.

This will be done so fast, you won’t have time to blink!

What you’ll need:


pipe fittings – mine are 1/2″
wood plank
cordless drill and screws
palm sander

1. Cut wood plank to size, and lightly sand.

2. Screw together fittings, as above.

The straight ones measure at 3″. I think I measured them right.

3. Attach pipe fittings onto the wood plank, via screws.

Pre-drilling holes is a good idea, to avoid splitting the wood.

4. Mount to the wall with screws through the wood plank.

(you may desire to install wall anchors first, if you can’t find a wall stud. I generally cross my fingers, and go without both for light duty stuff)

It sure has a neat look to it, doesn’t it?

And… the board did crack due to not pre drilling some holes. 

Can anyone explain why it only cracked in one area though? Naturally, the last screw in too!

Still good and strong, and ready for their first working gig.

My son’s room wasn’t ready for it yet, so I installed this downstairs so I could show you the idea.

Unless I steal it for my own room… or the bathroom maybe.

Oh dear. I guess I want one too.

This would make such a perfect mini entry coat hook area.

Add a crate, with a clipboard, and you have a little grocery list station as well.

Say… I need that in my kitchen…

I love it when I inspire myself.

Warning: start buying pipe fittings, and you’ll soon become addicted.

Meaning, you’ll take projects apart to help fuel your new brainstorms.

p.s. I miss my little coffee station shelf AND entry shelf and Pantry shelf and Laundryroom hanger already.

It’s obviously time to buy bulk!

  1. I’m pretty sure I’m going to steal your idea…love it! I always say I love small houses, but then I don’t have room for all the cool things

  2. I love how you put everything together. The box with clipboard, nails, plant on top is a great idea.

    Thanks for sharing.

  3. Well Donna, once again I pinned one of your ideas to my brilliant folder, thank you for making me brighter ha!

  4. Good morning, Donna

    Another super cool idea!

    You asked about the crack? My hubby says…in looking at the picture before you screwed the pieces in, it appears the crack was already there? Then you screwed two, what I call hooks next to each other into the crack which caused it to be a longer crack. Does this make sense?

  5. I have to say that when I saw the first picture of the pipe fittings put together, I was thinking “Calling all Teletubbies” which is a phrase in the Teletubbies show. You can see what I mean, if you care to watch here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jzuDplTRzFU at about the 1:30 minute and again at about a minute later. Let’s not discuss how I know this at 60 years old.

  6. What a cool idea! Love the pipe hangers. And you’re spot on as there are so many ways to use them. Maybe your wood split because right under the split the wood was missing a small area. It may have been compromised due to that. But as for me, me thinks it adds character.
