Create an industrial clothes rod

A clothes rod is a must for my parents laundry room. Before, my dad had a tension rod wedge between the wall and a cabinet. I knew I wanted to bring a cool textural element to the space with a close ride. I found this clothes rod made by chris loves Julia and I knew it would be the perfect fit. I’ve actually wanted to do an industrial clothes rod in my home for ages- I just don’t have the right spot.


Before- I think this picture says it all!

What you need
