Ethan Hagan, of the blog One Project Closer, is an expert on just about any aspect of home improvement and DIY projects. Here, he shows us how he created some simple wall-mounted shelving using cast iron pipe and fittings. Pipe shelving is a popular way to add storage space simply and relatively inexpensively, but Ethan’s pipe shelves have an extra stylish twist — they feature beautiful reclaimed wood. The repurposed wood is a perfect complement to the industrial-style pipe.
And as you’ll see, his shelving turned out to be perfect for displaying some treasured vintage items.
I recently inherited a few items from my grandfather including some old hand tools, a small radio and a 48-star American flag. Needless to say, I was excited and decided to build a space to show them off. I’ve always liked the look of black pipe shelves. Not only are they functional, the pipe and some reclaimed wood add character to an otherwise boring shelf.
