Have you ever seen those hair dryer storage pieces made from PVC pipe? They’re all over Pinterest, and one of those was the inspiration for this post. With the natural versatility of PVC pipe, there are a lot of uses for it around the house. Take a look at this list of PVC pipe projects for the home and see which you want to tackle first! Before you get started, you can order some PVC pipe from Hardware World.
Do you need a contemporary wine rack for an existing cupboard or shelf space? PVC is the easiest way to make one. If you use the PVC in its natural state, all you have to do is cut it to size and glue the pieces together. If you want to paint it, just grab a can of spray paint in your favorite color. So easy! I love this brand of spray paint that you can buy from Amazon.
If you don’t like the previous wine rack, here’s one that’ll perform two functions in one. PVC pipe and fiber board work together to create a wine rack that is also a handy chalkboard message center for your kitchen. If you’re not a drinker, I think you could modify this to be a mail holder instead.
This project might be my favorite on the list! Slender PVC pipe is cut in a cluster of differing lengths and spray painted gold to make a sophisticated centerpiece. Would you have guessed it was made from PVC pipe?
Talk about disguising PVC pipe–this PVC table lantern trio is amazing! You can also make this at home. Just put a battery-operated LED candle inside each finished piece for a long-lasting glow.
Make a PVC pipe shoe organizer for your closet or your mudroom. This one is painted to give it the appearance of a stack of Beech logs, but you could make yours look however you want it to look.
