What do you use to turn a wardrobe with a single hanging rail into a double rail? My DD's wardrobe is a standard free standing one and has those hanging shelf things on one side. Her dresses and jackets are way too short to take up the bottom of the space, so I want to add a second rail.

Can I use something like a thin hollow pipe of some kind held to the top one with like a piece of rope running through the centre, or should I get a 'proper' second rail?

And where do I find the stuff to do it?

I use a solution similar to this http://theorganisedhousewife.com.au/organi...kids-wardrobes/ - I bought it from masters and it was really inexpensive and is very sturdy.

I actually have a 4 x 2 unit standing tall, then I have room above it for storing baskets with shoes, then on the right hand side I have hanging space and on the round below the hanging space a very sturdy wire basket solution (again from masters, but ikea, kmart etc have similar.. masters one is from closetmaid and is very sturdy)

I looked at the second rail option, and was considering building it in using elfa from howards storage world but it was really expensive. I think bunnings sell a knock of brand though. The ones that just hang are really flimsy and I don't think they work well.

I am so happy with what I have though, really glad I found that post on organized housewife as I had been planning on spending money to fit the wardrobe out 'properly' and I think I get even more functionality from what I have now, for much cheaper.

I have done it for our wardrobe and the twins room and I'm so happy, I show all our visitors (slightly crazy.. have always had disorganized wardrobe before). DH likes it because with 8 fabric boxes, 3 drawers, and the hanging spcae, he knows where everything goes. We ended up buying a 3 x 2 with fabric boxes to have outside the wardrobe for his things that don't hang.

Can't recommend it highly enough!

I bought something similar to this for my SS from Big W about 5 years ago.

Go to binning a and get a rail and two brackets (was about $15 from memory) it only takes two small screws to put in place and the rails they have are adjustable.

This. Except I assume you mean Bunnings.

I also recommend adding another rail, cheaper and sturdier.  The hanging things can be a pain. Too long, too short, too high, too low, too flimsy.
