  1. Love this! If I had an inch of wall space, I would do this in a heartbeat! Love your instructions too – HAVE A PLAN – so many people don’t. Great project, great share!

  2. love the look and plan on creating! Maybe a silly question, but after painting the pipe are they then taken apart? A bit confused on the assembly process. Thanks

    • I know it’s a bit confusing! Yes you’ll have to take the vertical pieces apart again to get the wood shelves back on, but the horizontal pieces can stay together – I hope that makes sense!

  3. I LOVE it!! Can you send a detailed list of all the pieces you bought to make this exact unit? With sizes of the pipes? This looks like it would fit perfect for what we want to do. I have an exact tutorial with parts included, we can tackle it! :-)

    • Hi Gigi, sorry I don’t have a list like that, other than the photo of our diagram and list that’s in this post! You should be able to tell what we used from that drawing, though – we ended up using the one with the elbows on the middle three shelves (that’s the drawing on the right) and only attaching it to the wall with a flange at the bottom and the top. All the verticals are 12″ pipes, the horizontals are 6″ pipes, with either an elbow at the end (for the middle shelves) or a “T” fitting plus a 2″ pipe plus a flange (for the top and bottom shelves). Then you can make your shelves as wide as you want to fit the space. Hope that’s at least a little bit helpful!

  4. This is beautiful! Thanks for the detailed instructions! I also love the stain color you used. Do you remember what it was? Thanks.
