We're all about projects for home that look great that are made from affordable materials. Metal pipe is one of those materials that you can buy at a pretty good cost (depending on the type of metal) and with the right set of tools, transform into items for home that are stylish, functional and much more expensive looking than what you paid for. Here are 13 of our favorite pipe projects that will add some good-looking functionality to your space.
