Hey guys!!! We are back with another fun and super EASY DIY that will make a huge impact in any room!
Metal pipes are all the rage right now! You can find them in some of our favorite stores like Pottery Barn and Restoration Hardware! We decided to build this Industrial Plate Rack to fill-up a giant blank wall in my kitchen and thought it would also make the perfect spot to display my pretty dishes and platters!
This is definitely a project for beginners and it’s made super easy with the right tools! Here’s how I made it!
1 – 3/4″ sheet of Purebond plywood
3 – 1×2 @ 8ft.
2 – 2×6 @ 8ft.
10 – galvanized floor flanges
10 – galvanized 90 degree street elbows
5 – 24″ (1/2″ thick) galvanized pipes
and used my brad nailer to attach a piece at each short end of the plywood. Make the back of the plywood flush with the back of the 1×2 so that there is a 3/4″ over hang on the front.
After staining this one of our favorite stain colors, it was time to add the pipes!
For the finish, I applied one coat of Rust-Oleum Carrington stain! To hang , I purchased the French Cleat below and it is a SUPER EASY way to hang large, heavy pieces like this 🙂
That was it!! A quick and easy DIY that is sure to impress! The total cost for this piece was $225. The majority of the cost is in the pipes but they really make the piece! And, at over 6 ft. high, it really is more like a piece of furniture than wall decor. I’m totally in LOVE with this piece and now I want to add a little pipe all over my house :)
Thanks for stopping by!
