Does anyone have any experience or advice on building a clothing/display rack out of pipes?

Firstly, I don't know anything about plumbing, building things, or generally being handy.
I suspect it might be simple enough to construct a simple clothing rack out of steel pipes, but I'm posting here in case I'm mistaken so someone can tell me not to waste my time.
It would basically be a rectangular frame held together by 45 degree elbow joints, with a 4-directional joiner on each corner at the bottom so that parallel pipes can be fitted as a base.
(I'd sketch out a design but I'm worse at drawing than I am at words).
I'd like to know if something like this would be sturdy enough without having to weld anything together, and any tips/terminology that would make me sound less moronic in front of the staff at the hardware store.
