DIY Wooden Slat Entry Closet

Wood Slat Entry Closet

As the days have gotten shorter and the nights have grown colder I’ve found myself breaking out the winter coats and boots.  The problem is, I didn’t have any place to store my coats or shoes.  My house doesn’t have a coat closet.  And in the past I’ve had a problem with scarves, shoes and winter gear clogging my front entryway. So I set out to come up with a solution.  I needed inspiration.  I needed guidance. My entry closet needed to be aesthetically pleasing because it would be near the front door and visible from the great room.  So I went to Pinterest to search for a solution.  I found these plans for an Industrial Style Wood Slat Closet System with Galvanized Pipes by Ana White.

It was perfect. I just needed to make a few modifications to make it work for my space so that I could store a much as physically possible in a very tight space.  I am making this big push in my life reduce waste. My goal is to use what I have.  I had some old cedar paneling I picked up months ago from a reclaimed center.  I knew It would be perfect for the slats.  Also I wanted to make sure to keep the over all cost of making the closet down, so wooden dowels as closet rodsI used 1.375-in wooden dowels instead of galvanized pipes.  To keep the metal look of the rods I used a brown metallic hammered spray paint by Rust-oleum.



Here’s what I did.
