House and Home

Creating a Fashion Accessory Wall Rack

When we moved into this house four years ago, I hated everything. The finishes were old and date, wear and tear on paint and fixtures was obvious and it just didn’t suit our style. Slowly but surely we have started to put our mark on this house. From smaller projects like painting, to larger projects like bathroom renovations, its slowly starting to feel like a house that reflects us.

Everything big and small needed to be updated or overhauled. One of my biggest bones of contention was the master walk in closet. It looked like it had been picked up at a garage sale. I couldn’t adjust the fixtures so some of my clothes were hanging on the ground. It looked very unsturdy, like it could collapse at any second and it was just plain ugly and a terrible use of the space. We called in California Closets to do a new set up for us and it was amazing!

Once the set up from California Closets was in, I started to wonder what to do with the one wall that didn’t have any fixtures. The size of the closet didn’t allow for fixtures on all 4 walls. One of the shorter walls had room for something but I wasn’t sure what.

It began to dawn on me, that short wall would make a perfect space for hanging accessories, mostly scarves (which I have a ton of). I just wasn’t sure how to make it happen without having to drill a million holes for individual hooks.

I started searching for some type of fixture that would hold multiple hooks, fit my space and would be inexpensive and easy to hang on the wall. It took a lot of time but eventually I found something at Ikea. The “Lurt” rack was a white piece of wood with holes in it that were compatible with any knobs from the Kitchen cabinet collection. I bought two Lurt boards and 12 cabinet knobs, mixing two different styles because I couldn’t make up my mind! Links to the Bagganas knobs are here and here.

Total cost was around $50 Canadian which was in the range of what I wanted to spend. Put it all together and now my dead wall space is filled and I have easier access to my scarves. It can also be used for blazers and bags and I like the versatility it offers.

I made a video of how the whole thing came together. You can watch it here.

Finished product. Love the look.
