Pipe Decor Round-up

I've been seeing so many creative uses for galvanized pipe lately.  Lots of resourceful people are creating totally custom creations with just a trip to the hardware store.

I love how these were done in the lighter stainless colored pipe.

But not just about beds!  So cool for an industrial loft space.


This industrial farmhouse table is fantastic but don't think it would look great as an island too?

If you're not feeling quite up to the challenge of furniture or shelves, maybe start with something small like this industrial-chic candelabra.  This looks totally doable and a great way to get familiar with the different pipe components.

Are you into this look or do you think it's just a passing fad?  I appreciate the creativity with all these things and how they can provide a low cost, custom solution.
