DIY Industrial Shelf Using PVC Pipe

Today I’d like to share with you one such project. I was sitting on the floor, staring at this wall. Not exaggerating. (If something bugs me, I will sit and stare at it until I figure out what is “off” and then come up with a solution.)

-  Rubber Mallet -  Sand Paper -  Saw (I would suggest a Miter Saw) -  Drill -  1″ Paddle Bit

Tools Required:

Materials Needed:

-  Spray Primer -  Metallic Spray Paint Stain -  2×10 wood planks               -  3/4″ PVC pipe
