The gold and white industrial DIY garment rack tutorial is finally here! I’d searched for garment racks for months, and just never pulled the trigger. I either liked something ridiculously expensive, or something that I wasn’t sure was going to hold up. I realized it would probably be just as easy for me to make one that I absolutely love! And I was able to make it for under $100!
You can customize colors to make it uniquely yours – keep the industrial piping black or spray paint it any color you like – it doesn’t have to be gold! Same for the wood – you could actually stain it to keep the wood grain for paint it any color! I’d love to see your creative color combos – DM me a picture of your project on Instagram and I’ll reshare!

Materials for DIY Garment Rack:
- 2 60 inch 1/2 inch steel conduit pipes ($14 x 2)
- 1 36 inch. 1/2 inch steel conduit pipe ($12)
- 4 50 lb castors ($5x 4)
- 2 1/2 inch flanges ($2.50 x 2)
- 2 1/2 inch elbow joints ($2 x 2)
- 24 wood screws
- 1 Wood base (mine was cut to 43 inches x 16 inches)
- 2 cans spray paint (we did a combo of Rust-oleum Champagne Mist and Krylon Gold Leaf Metallic)
- Drill to put the castors and flanges on
Tips on Finding the Materials:
You can find the steel conduit pipes in the plumbing section at Lowe’s/Home Depot. If you go to an Ace Hardware, they will actually cut the pipes for you if you want a custom size!
For the wood board – it can really be anything! Have a spare shelf? Have spare wood laying around? We did! Ross custom cut the wood board for me, but you can pay Lowe’s $1 per cut to cut the wood board the dimensions you want. 16 inches is a little deep, but I wouldn’t recommend less than 10 inches of depth.
- Spray paint the steel conduit pipes. I did a combo of Rust-oleum Champagne Mist and Krylon Metallic Gold Leaf. A few other recommended gold spray paints are: Rust-oleum Pure Gold and Satin Bronze (it’s more gold even though it’s called bronze).
- Paint / Stain the wood base your desired color. Wait for paint to dry 🙂
- Drill the 4 castors onto the bottom of the wood base – 1 for each corner area (obviously, measure accordingly so they are even). Each castor takes 4 screws.
- Before you drill in the flanges on the wood board, you need to build the conduit pipe rack and measure!
- Screw the elbow joints on each end of the shorter conduit pipe (36 inch)
- Hold up the Now, take a pencil and mark on the wood board where the holes for the flanges should go (the length of the conduit pipe with the elbow joints screwed in).
- Now you can actually drill the flanges in once you measure!
- Screw in the 2 60 inch conduit pipes into the elbow joints of the 36 conduit
