Well, I’m pretty proud of myself! It’s only Jan 4th, and I’ve already done a new project!

Truth be told, I was cleaning the kitchen, and everything just looked ‘tired’. As in, I was sick of looking at all the same stuff.

So I came up with this Industrial pipe, and reclaimed wood mini coffee station, that took all of 10 minutes to make!

(but for a blogger, several hours of course… you bloggers will get that)

Here’s what I had before. I like to ramp up the area around the coffee pot a little, so there’s extra room.

You can see the rest of this post HERE.

It was VERY serviceable! But I wanted something a little lighter looking this round.

This is so easy, it’s embarrassing to showcase as a tutorial. But here we go anyway…

What you’ll need:

1/2 pipe fittings – as shown  – long ones are 6″. (I got mine from the local hardware store)

plank of wood – I used an old fence plank

miter saw – Amazon affiliate link

palm sander – Amazon affiliate link

old sign styled stencil – if desired

1. Take picture of cute kitty helper, because I’ve been asked for more cat pictures.

Mooches…

2. Screw pipe fittings together, as shown.

(after taking apart another project that was claiming the pipe fittings)

Bucket list: I need to collect at least 10 gallons of random pipe fittings.

3. Cut your plank of wood to desired size. Lightly sand the cut edges. Stencil if desired.

(in my case, I used a sign I had made previously, made with THESE stencils)

4. Place board on pipes, and serve coffee!

If I had some pipe brackets on hand, I would have attached them around the pipes onto the board from the underside. But this did work.

Plus, it’s a whole lot easier to change my mind yet again, right?

It’s perfect! Light and airy, with a touch of industrial rustic charm.

And because I’ve always wanted to try making one of those moving gif pictures…

  1. Love that last image thought my eyes were messing with me, Still waking up! Anyways the industrial pipe is perfect and I get changing things up. When we get moved I think our shed/office building will need some gadgets like this for shelving.

  2. Happy New Year!

    I’m all about declutter & cleaning this time of year! I would love to have a few industrial shelves like this and I love the movie picture you did.

  3. Love the coffee station. I’m planning on doing something similar with my coffee maker and supplies also. I have got to go to a hardware store and shop the aisles for some industrial pipes. And I know what you mean about things looking tired. Isn’t it fun to shake things up in as little as ten minutes, and it comes out looking great. It puts a lift in my step and spirit.

  4. Love your helper. The shelf is awesome too! Just like everything you do. I want you to come to my house and do a complete make over on it!!

  5. Lovely! And, yeah, I totally get the ’10 minute project that took me two hours to make.’ I just made my first GIF about two months ago it was was so much fun!
