Materials and Tools:

4 – 72" heavy duty oak closet poles
scissors
tape measure
2” wood screws
3/16" drill bit
pencil
4 paint mixing containers
1 quart gold paint
1 quart forest green paint
1 quart white paint
painter’s tape
paintbrush
drill
twisted ¼" sisal rope

Drill Holes

Measure and mark each of the 4 poles at 18”. Using a 3/16-inch drill bit, drill a hole through each pole on the 18" mark.

Paint Poles

Pour green paint into four paint mixing containers. Add differing amounts of white paint to three of the four containers to create four different shades of green. Thoroughly mix paint in each container with a paintbrush, and paint each pole with a different color green. Let paint dry for four hours (see directions for cure times).

Apply Gold Detail

On the opposite end of the drilled hole on each pole, measure 18” and mark with a pencil. Wrap painter’s tape around each pole at the 18” mark. Paint the base of each pole with gold paint, and let paint dry. Apply a second coat if necessary, and let dry. Remove painter’s tape.

Attach Two Poles

Create an “X” with two of the poles. Insert a 2-inch screw through the pre-drilled hole, and screw the two poles together.

Attach Other Poles

Stand the poles up, and add a third pole by inserting a 2-inch screw through the pre-drilled hole and screwing to one of the other poles. Attach the fourth pole using the same method.

Add Rope Detail

Tie a knot with ¼” sisal rope where all of the poles meet. Wrap the sisal rope around the poles approximately 20 times. Cut the rope, and tie the rope around one of the poles. Tuck the excess rope behind the wrapped rope.
