If building a DIY industrial pipes and fittings desk is a project you have in mind, you’ve come to the right place! Homemade furniture brings a lot of freedom into your home decor game:
- You get to choose the exact dimensions and the shape of your DIY desk -whether you are looking to build a corner desk, a wall-mounted desk, a square, rectangle or round desk… it’s all possible!
- You’ll be able to choose the type of surface -wood, melamine, HPDE plastic… the choice is yours!
- You’ll get to choose the color of tubes and fittings according to your home decor and your taste.
1. The parts you’ll need
Here are the parts you’ll need to build a 55″ X 29″ industrial pipe desk.
