DIY Full Wall Industrial Piping Shelves

For the last few years, everywhere I've been I seem to be drawn in by the industrial, vintage, warehouse look. I love the modern yet hand made rough feeling it brings to a room. Especially when it's the main focal point of a room or wall.
Before we jump into the assemblage of this full wall piece, I have to give you the low down...this was not easy and it was not quick. The only reason we were able to complete this was because my dad was insanely helpful. I'm not down grading any girls strength but it couldn't hurt to find a very strong gentlemen to help out.

    Very nice addition for a small bedroom needing more closet space. Would be great for a guest bedroom too.
