If you like the look of the Industrial DIY Pipe Shelves, but (like me) lack the DIY skills to handle the pipes, or the boards, or the nails, or the screws, or the shelves, or the walls… then have I found the product for you!
Yes, there’s an easy way to get that DIY Pipe Shelves look.
Some may call it cheating, I call it “the easy way to get that DIY Pipe Shelves look”.
And, don’t worry, I won’t ever tell anyone that you didn’t struggle for hours to figure out what to buy, how to cut it, and how to put those shelves together from the bits and pieces you bought at Home Depot.
It will be our little secret.
These rustic pieces create a unique and wonderful focal point and storage solution. The first option comes from a company called DIWHY. (I cannot tell you how much I love that name!!)

Pipe Shelf Option # 2
This unique set that has multiple layers and can be configured around a corner.

I love the additional details of the pressure value and the rustic tap handle on that one. It really adds to the overall look.
Pipe Shelf Option #3
This one is a pretty straight-forward 3 shelf pipe shelving unit. Clean, simple, and wonderfully rustic.

Which is also available with Retro Brown shelves, in case you want something a little bit different.

The nice thing about these shelving units is that most of them can be customized to add multiple units together to create taller, wider, or unique shelving systems.
Small Shelving for Smaller Spaces
If you’re looking for something more petite, for the bathroom or powder room (for example), you can find smaller versions that will fit just fine.

Single Pipe Shelf Options
Or, if you want fewer shelves, there are some lovely single-shelf units available as well, such as the 24” Pipe Floating Shelf, also from DIWHY (still LOVE that name).

Or this one…

These shelves always seem to suit best with rustic or farmhouse decor pieces, but you can use them to store or display any number of household, kitchen, or bathroom items. There uses are only limited by your imagination.
Ceiling Mounted Pipe Shelves
Industrial pipe shelves are usually mounted to the wall and/or the ceiling. This configuration includes pipes that go all the way up the ceiling, creating a suspended look.

Putting it All Together
From what I can tell, these cost about the same as what it would take out of your pocket to gather the materials from a place like Home Depot, but I didn’t price it out piece-by-piece.
And, you get to pull it all together… which, technically, is DIY — isn’t it??
Plus, reading through some of the reviews… the instructions have an IKEA-level sketchiness to them, so that will help you pretend it was a true and proper DIY project.
So, if you desire the look but don’t possess the skills required to create these DIY Pipe Shelves from scratch, these Amazon products provide a nice little shortcut. And – a shameless plus – these pieces would look fantastic with any of our Rustic & Farmhouse Furniture pieces.
I found all of these through my partnership with Amazon, but there are even more available if you need something different.
