5 DIY Pipe Shelves to Make an Industrial Theme for Your Home
If you visited a coffee shop, café, or office that looks like from Hugo movie, and got amazed by that industrial design, don’t worry, you can make it too. These are some easy DIY furniture ideas to make an industrial theme. Let’s go.
1. Pipe shelf bracket
Begin with the easiest, a pipe bracket. All you need is just a pair of pipe brackets and a board to make a shelf. This minimalist design will give you a simple and bold look. Don’t forget to use metal pipes for a stronger shelf.
2. Towering pipe shelf
The idea is to make a tiered shelf with a single pipe as a pole in the middle. Begin with a large board in the lowest and add a smaller board in the above. Do that again and add as many boards as you want and get a DIY pyramid-look shelf.
3. Swivel pipe shelf
If you need flexibility and adjustability, you can use a swivel. All you need is just a hydraulic connector and an “ordinary” pipe shelf. Apply them in the corner you wanted to make as a switch. Now, you can move your shelf as you desire. This DIY furniture will be very useful in the kitchen.
4. PVC pipe shelf
If you want a different kind of pipe, use PVC pipe. Choose the biggest one so you can put your stuff in it. The design is simple. Cut the pipe and arrange them into a shelf. Combine with smaller pipes to make an abstract and stunning look. Remember, you need very strong glue for this.
5. Pipe hanging shelf
This DIY furniture idea is similar to a curtain rod. Only, you will use rings to connect your stuff instead of drape. So, you will need a very long pipe and some rings to hang your stuff. You can also combine this with PVC pipe shelf by hanging them.
These home decor ideas are very easy to make and only need a single afternoon. It’s also very cheap because most of them are just using pipes and boards. You can have an industrial design without cost you a new industrial revolution on your wallet. Wow!
