By Way of Reminder

24 Jan

via” Smile and Act Nice”

One of the reason I started this blog was to remind myself of all the cool design ideas that I have seen. I tend to forget some of the things I really want to try, so by way of reminder I am posting about plumber pipe curtain rods. I really want to try this look in my new house! The industrial look is really hot right now and I want to jump on the band-wagon on the cheap. There are so many other ideas for using plumbers pipe as decor, and below are just a few. The possibilities are endless!

I love this pot-rack idea from Apartment Therapy. The copper pipe might be a little more money, but so charming.I just found this bed by American Furnishings, via Desire to Inspire. The possibilities in plumber’s pipe furniture are flowing through my head now!
