As this point in the DIY movement evolution, no one is surprised to learn that the strength and construction toy-like versatility of plumbing pipe makes it awesome fodder for building all sorts of projects. You've probably even seen it applied to lighting and lamp projects before. But, there's still room to improve on a classic, and we think this piece by Alyssa does exactly that.
Why? Well, I think it's the small design choices. It's balanced, well-proportioned, and highlights the materials. It's a bit rustic, but not overtly so, and while you can tell what it's made from, it doesn't scream hyper urban, reclaimed, coolkidgentrification everythingisauthentic of your local ____ + ____ named establishment. It's just solid, well-done, and practical. Can't beat that.
