Copper pipes can add a touch of industrial chic vibe to any room. They can be great as components for DIY furniture but they are wonderful materials for small projects as well. Several small pieces of copper pipes and some end caps or connectors can give you a lovely DIY décor for the home. Check out some inspiration below:

1 Hanging Planter

3 Lamp

LampHere we have another DIY addition to your chic industrial home. Just like the previous copper pipe project, you will need a wooden base to make this lamp. You drill a hole for the lamp wire to go through. The hole is also where you will install the vertical copper pipe for the lamp. Since this lighting fixture doesn't have a shade, you will want to use a bulb with low wattage.

4 Picture Frame

Picture FrameThis is another easy DIY home project involving lovely copper pipes. Just like the planter idea, you will be making squares or rectangles using the pipes and elbows. For hanging, you will glue copper clips to one side of your frame. As for displaying, you can tape the photos or art to the wall first and then superimpose the copper frame. Of course, you can also glue your photos or art to the underside of the frame before hanging.

You will use the t-shaped connectors and the shorter pipes to indicate the 12, 3, 6, and 9 o'clock marks.

7 Wine Rack

Wine RackYour bedroom isn't the only part of the house that can rock an industrial vibe. Your kitchen should be in on the fun, too. To make this chic wine rack, you will need copper pipes and connectors, leather, and line snaps. If you can't find leather, any sturdy fabric should work. Denim would be a great alternative.
