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 2a10174d e0e4 4ea1 8cb7 b37477d4a049

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

    2. Step: 2

      Large a7272896 6d08 49ec a88d 67fab6687976

      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 880defb4 1370 435e bcd5 435d9a813b2f

      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 c35f53df f84b 4a94 a925 3e3fed8c5833

      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.
