We’ve recently become pretty enamored with industrial style and design… It blends well with modern styles, and adds a rustic flavor that warms up your rooms, but keeps a style edge, as well. Pipe is an inexpensive DIY material to use when creating any style with an industrial flair. A huge number of end fittings exist, allowing you to create any size or shape project you desire. It’s easy for a beginner to use, the biggest challenge is cutting it. (Don’t worry, the tutorials cover that!) Try DIY projects with pipe!
Our feature project, above and below, is a DIY towel bar from ‘This Sorta Old Life’. We love this because it’s an easy project, and they went a step further and showed you how to make the wood base for it as well.
Now that you have making a towel bar down, care to get inspired for more? This industrial pipe hand towel rack from Etsy can be purchased, or if you are feeling creative, come up with your own, similar design!
‘Something We Whipped Up’ made these West Elm inspired DIY industrial curtain rods, and have a great tutorial on how you can make it happen too, for less than half the price of West Elm! (Sorry West Elm, I still love you!)
I LOVE this DIY black pipe console table by ‘Handmaid Tales’. This is a great example of mixing industrial pipe, rustic wood, and modern furnishings for a warm, fresh look.
Need a side table instead? This DIY industrial side table by Allison at ‘The Golden Sycamore’ might be just the ticket. Love the dual levels!
This plumbing pipe firewood holder has an industrial style, but is at home in a rustic space… Love the casters! For those of you who have a wood fireplace, this could save a lot on cold trips to the wood pile… From ‘The Cavender Diary’…
From ‘Cafe Cartolina’, this DIY table has complete downloadable plans, and step by step instructions. Would make an amazing home office desk!
Lastly, from ‘This Old House’, how to make a copper pipe pot rack! Easy project, I love that you can use this in a small kitchen because it just takes up wall space, you don’t need a huge island to hang it over… Anyone trying a DIY pipe project?
