I don’t know who started doing DIY Industrial Pipe projects for home decor, but I salute you!
Or lift a plumbers wrench to you or something.
I think a good industrial pipe project is needed in every home. I’ve seen them in the bathroom (like my DIY Industrial Pipe Shelves I made in the fall), in the living room, entryway and even in the laundry room.
I think part of the appeal is they are easy to make, sturdy as all get out and somewhat MacGyver-ish.
You’re not using a potato and a screw driver to make a flying car or anything, but it sure is satisfying to screw together a bunch of odds and ends and come up with something you can sit a cup of coffee on.
So I gathered together some of my favorite DIY Industrial Pipe Projects from around the internet to share with you. Hopefully they will give you some inspiration to try a project of your own.
