If you ran a report of all the purchases I’ve ever made at The Home Depot, I guarantee you copper pipe would be at the top of the list. I LOVE thinking of creative copper pipe projects. Ironically, I never thought I had any business hanging around the plumbing aisle, but my dear copper pipe, you have my heart. You and I will make all the things!

I’ve made quite a few projects from copper pipe (you can check them out at my blog), so when The Home Depot asked if I would be interested in a little DIY Challenge involving pipe, I absolutely jumped on board! I had an idea rolling around in my head for a while, and this was the perfect opportunity to bring it to life: a himmeli-style DIY side table.

I referred to a favorite tutorial from The Design Confidential to make the base (which I also used as inspiration for the mobile in my son’s nursery).

Let’s get to it!
