I love plumbers pipe.  It adds an industrial twist to my farmhouse style.  It is strong and easy to use.  The problem is it’s not super cheap, I am still trying to find someone who has invented a lighter, more inexpensive decor plumbers pipe – any tips?  It still is a great DIY product and less costly than department store products.
