Ever wondered what else you could do with a load of plumbing pipes and wooden boards? NO? Well, James Angus and Jamie Bolton did when they had the genius idea of using piping and boards to make a unique, made-to-measure set of shelves.
The system they devised to hold up wooden boards using various sized connector pipes, “T” fittings and flanges is both simple and effective. The resulting shelves give off that slightly unfinished, urban, renovated loft aesthetic; a look that nonchalantly says, “Oh, yeah, these super cool shelves? I just built them in like a half hour, you know?”
Well, it’s not really going to take just half an hour, but most proficient DIYers could easily achieve this project within a day. The trick is to take care in the planning (taking good measurements and making a detailed sketch of what your shelves will look like) so that you can make sure to have all the required tools and materials from the start.
And then all you need to do is dress your shelves with all your best books, favorite décor objects and sentimental nick-nacks, something that Jamie and Jamie excel at as you see from their superb finished project image.
