Our guest house is two story, with the second story functioning as the bedroom, and it is accessed by a spiral stair. As such, furniture and other items that are made for that space have to be modular and assembled in-place.

We recently started renting it out on AirBnB and one point of feedback we got was that there was no place to hang clothes. So I did some digging around on the internet and found THIS which I thought looked pretty good and could be made modular. My shop is limited to a chop saw and hand tools right now, so I needed something I could make from dimensional lumber.

I thought it was going to be far too wobbly, but it turns out it’s far more stable than I thought it would be. The concealed screw heads with the cut plugs and the routing of the slats were both last-minute decisions that I’m very glad I went with as I think they add a layer of detailing that really make the piece.

Nice job. An attractive, yet functional solution to a problem.

You must be a believer in the KISS principle, keep it simple stupid!
Elegant design does its job without being overbearing! Nice solution!

Thanks guys.

I really like finding the minimalist solutions to these things, so I’m really happy with the results here.
