Getting Crafty with Pipe Plumbing

In the spirit of Arts, Crafts & Collections Month here at Apartment Therapy, how about finding new uses for everyday objects? Pipe plumbing is super inexpensive and can be found in most hardware stores. It’s like LEGOs for grown-ups, just find the right pieces and screw them together. The result can create any number of industrial looks for your home. I love the simplicity of using pipes for a curtain rod or towel bar, or even wall hooks. Some folks out there got a little more inventive and made a bed or a desk. And the hanging pot rack!? Way to craft. Click Amy Azzarito’s posts below for simple instructions on making the bed and the pot rack. Many of the tips will apply to the other projects seen.
