Need sharp and classic shelving for all of your decor? These industrial pipe shelves look so sleek and hold a ton of decor! Plus, they're easier to make than you think. These shelves look perfect for your man cave, bathroom, kitchen, or living room!

Prime Pipes, Flanges, and Caps
Spray pipes, flanges, and caps with the gunmetal spray (do two coats)
Stain shelves with espresso finish

These shelves were stained with three coats of stain. One shelf was 5 foot long and the other shelf was 6 foot long. We bought the plywood at Home Depot and had them cut each shelve to our desired length. (Before staining the shelves, make sure to sand them very, very well).

Hang up shelves!

1st: Insert drywall anchors into your markings and hang the flange (we used three flanges per shelve).

3rd: Once the metal flanges have been attached, screw the metal pipes on to them.

4th: Attach the pipe caps to the end of the metal pipes.

5th. Now, place your shelf on top of the metal pipes.


These shelves hold so much decor!
