DIY a wall organizer that hangs from a bar, inspired by Pottery Barn Gabrielle System
1- 1x4 board, 8 feet long
I used 1-1/4" pocket hole screws for the entire project
2 - Eye Hooks
2 - 1x4 @ 32"
3 - 1x4 @ 14-1/2"
3 - metal pieces @ 16"
Please read through the entire plan and all comments before beginning this project. It is also advisable to review the Getting Started Section. Take all necessary precautions to build safely and smartly. Work on a clean level surface, free of imperfections or debris. Always use straight boards. Check for square after each step. Always predrill holes before attaching with screws. Use glue with finish nails for a stronger hold. Wipe excess glue off bare wood for stained projects, as dried glue will not take stain. Be safe, have fun, and ask for help if you need it. Good luck!
Build the organizer by attaching the shelves to the sides. I used 3/4" pocket holes on the underside of the shelves, and attached with 1-1/4" pocket hole screws. You could also countersink screws from outside - I'd use 2" self tapping trim screws or similar.
Cut the metal (check the video out, I show you how easy this is with a jigsaw) and attach with screws to the front. I use a 2x2 block to guide me when attaching (watch the video, it's all in there )
Then attach Eye hooks to the top - depending on your walls, you may wish to move the placement of the Eye Hooks at the top - by screwing in. Hang from your bar!
It is always recommended to apply a test coat on a hidden area or scrap piece to ensure color evenness and adhesion. Use primer or wood conditioner as needed.
