I love plumbers pipe shelving but they aren’t a very inexpensive project – the piping cost quite a bit. I was thinking the other day I could create the same look with PVC pipe, so I tried it out and it worked! They are not as strong as metal pipe, so I wouldn’t recommend using the shelving for super heavy items. But it is still pretty sturdy.
Here is my 60 second DIY Tutorial for you to watch, then read on for all the details!

I love plumbers pipe. It’s industrial look mixes so when with farmhouse decor. It is easy to use and super versatile. The two things that stress me out the most though when I am considering it for a project are:
It is so expensive!
It is so dirty!
I can’t do anything about the price, but I was bound and determined to figure out how to clean it faster. I google and searched – not much on the internet except for ways to clean CLOGGED plumbers pipe (totally not was I was going for) . I recently had a client hire me for a large build FULL of plumbers pipe – I needed to figure out this cleaning thing fast.
I guess I should have thought a little harder about it – but thankfully my wonderful friends at The Home Depot introduced me to ACETONE! Yippee!! Super similar to what our little girlies use to clean their fingernail polish off with. Smelly – totally. Effective – completely!
As always I have a 60 second DIY Tutorial to fast track you through the process.
