There is something magical about the furniture designs made with plumbing pipes and plumbing fittings that make them unexpectedly attractive – it may be the perfect geometrical shapes, the structural look or the rustic appeal. Try to make all of these from PVC pipes – they won’t look anywhere cool. People make vases, tables, chairs and even beds out of plumbing pipes but we think it’s lame – the best plumbing pipes home design ideas we’ve found are in decorative furniture such as small shelves, lighting fixtures and other smaller decor pieces. You may be only thinking about DYI-ing some plumbing pipes furniture … but they (the other folks) already got it going, on Etsy. The creativity on Etsy has been exploding, as it seems. People find talents they didn’t know they have. To be the best in plumbing pipe designs you got to be not just a handyman but also artistic, to beat the competition. And some creations are totally cool, cute and amusing, and some are actually very artsy and designer pieces like. You can find a really artistic piece that will make a great decor statement or you can find a fun object that will spark the conversation. Whichever you desire, there are hundreds to choose from. And they fit a few decor styles – industrial, rustic and eclectic. We’ve picked some designs that we find the best suitable to decorate with. For your inspiration…
