Simple Hanging Rack

Hey everyone!

I dry clothing in my basement by hanging it on free-standing clothing racks. To save space, I wanted to build these racks into the wall.

My general idea is to, somehow, suspend a long wooden rod (5-7' in length) about 1 foot from the wall. Problem is, I don't know the simplest way to do this which would also adequately support the rod.

Anyone have any ideas?

I think the best way might be to have it rest on the floor when
it is deployed and fold up when not needed.

This seems real simple. What is the name of that piece? It's hard to look up an item without the name.

It's just a shelf bracket with a hook for a clothes rod, pretty common at the big box stores and Wal-Marts etc, look in the shelving section

Don't Panic
