Materials Needed:

  • PVC pipe
  • 2 wood discs slightly smaller in diameter than PVC pipe
  • 1" screws
  • hot glue gun and sticks
  • hack saw or reciprocating saw
  • three 8x10 angle brackets
  • 1/2" drill bit
  • drill
  • 3/8" rope
  • #10 wood screws
  • 3 wicker baskets

Measure Area

Measure the distance from the floor to ceiling in desired mounting location. Mark PVC pipe to size using a pencil based on these dimensions. Note: This mark is an approximation of where the PVC pipe will be cut for perfect floor-to-ceiling fit.

Cut PVC Pipe

Use a hack saw or reciprocating saw to cut the PVC pipe according to your measurement minus a 1/2 inch to accommodate for the mounting angle brackets.

Add Notch to Pipe

Cut a 3/4-inch notch into half of the top and bottom portion of the PVC pipe with a hack saw or reciprocating saw, allowing pipe to slide over wooden disc.
