PVC Pipe Garment Rack Do-Over

 As you all know, in August I made a PVC Pipe Garment Rack.
It turned out pretty cool and I was proud that I made it myself.
However...
I am a perfectionist(mostly) and it just wasn't working like it was supposed to.  So I did what anyone would do...
I re-did it!
 

It really works out so much better now.  It holds a ton of stuff too!
The directions are super easy.
If you made the old one and just need to re-do like me...
All you have to buy is one more 4-way connector and cut 5 inches off each of your 40 inch pieces...
 
Supply List
 
1. 10 foot piece of 1 inch PVC pipe cut like this

          3 pieces of 35 in
          4 pieces of 18 inch
          3 pieces of 5 inch
          4 pieces of 12 inch
2. 6 elbows
3. 3 3-way connectors
4. 4 4-way connectors
You should have 14 cut pieces of pipe.  The people at Menard's will cut it for you if you ask real nice.
 
Here is a pic of what the bottom looks like, for reference.

 Here is the crappy diagram I made on paint!
Hope it helps.
 
 
The easiest way to put it together is to lay it out like the diagram and then just connect the pieces!
Voila! Done!
Thanks for reading!
