Make a copper pipe clothing rail

with Madelynn Furlong

Follow simple step-by-step instructions and illustrations to make a copper-pipe clothing rail.

In just 8 steps, designer Madelynn Furlong shows you how to create this easy-to-make project, combining copper pipes and natural cotton rope to create simple yet elegant storage for clothing and textiles.
