New year means new you! For those of you who have made room in your personal lives for fitness, why not make room in your home for it as well? Create a trendy yoga mat holder for your home in just a few easy steps! Yoga not for you? Good thing this holder doubles as a coat rack as well. Multipurpose living (and New Years Resolutions) never looked so good.

  1. Project Steps

    1. Step: 1

      Large f1c1e125 8eb8 47d7 9ffd 8b03b266a899

      Cut your plywood backing to 14 3/4" x 24".

    2. Step: 2

      Large c39b197d 2a63 47c8 9814 ada07f8a1757

      Use a straight edge to find the center of your plywood backing. Create four even rectangles to help map out your design.

    3. Step: 3

      Large 9dc9aa4c 7545 4573 946a 559df7800534

      Cut a scrap piece of 1x3 at 45 degrees to use as a stencil for your mat holder. Use this stencil to trace your design.

    4. Step: 4

      Large 1914663d 602f 459e 8505 90ac783a0446

      Start each board with a 45 degree cut. Line up each board with the design you traced. Once lined up, use a pencil to trace the cut mark on each board. This will be where the 1x3 overhangs the plywood backing.

    5. Step: 5

      Large 6b17a6f4 28dc 425b 8084 b734060818c9

      Cut your 1x3's on the cut lines. All cuts will be made at 45 degrees.

    6. Step: 6

      Large 5d8e01ae 24a2 47b6 8c0e f4c1bba65aff

      Attach all 1x3 boards with a brad nailer and 1" nails.

    7. Step: 7

      Large 861b010c 510e 4a8a 9e6b 390f79deb161

      Cut four pieces for your border (2 long edges @ 24" and 2 short edges @ 15 1/4"). Attach them to the mat holder with a brad nailer and 1" nails.

    8. Step: 8

      Large 69f8c5b6 3153 488c 98ac f3226b8b4525

    9. Step: 9

      Large f26fa9cc 1c0b 4548 b61e 606d9e5c9d70

      Attach large hooks on the front for the mat and small hooks on the back for hanging.

    10. Step: 10

      Large 2402a287 3c18 4f15 85ba 8f423d7d0872
