DIY pipe shelf construction- this might be the perfect solution for a cheap, large storage/ desk space in my office. I would put a thin pipe in front of shelves to hold things in place. This would make a fabulous pantry - wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling!
Re-purposed wood and pipe fittings (plus a few things from the hardware store) = a fabuluosly industrial style chic closet. *Notice that you can't stub your toe on the pipe AND a dust mop sweeps right through easily!
