Industrial Pipe Towel Bar {Oil Rubbed Bronze}

I often go to Lowe’s and hang out in the metal pipe section. {Just one more interesting fact about me that you might want to know.}

The guys there used to give me strange looks and keep asking could they help me….but now they just smile and keep going. It confuses them what I’m doing there…gathering metal pipe pieces and making strange things right there in the aisles. But, they are used to me now. I always know when there is a new employee…because I get the weird look and constant query to help me.

For our new master bathroom I wanted to get the hand towel off of the counter, and I needed a fun, new way to make it accessible to use, but out of the way.

To the Lowe’s metal pipe aisle I went.

Using a few pieces I put together a fun, industrial towel bar and then painted it oil rubbed bronze.  I’m loving it!

We attached it right beside the sink and now the towel is out of the way, doesn’t have to be constantly refolded and adds a neat element to the new bath.

What do you think?

{Excuse some of the hazy pics….I took them outside on a day that was so hot and humid my lens kept fogging up! ha!}

Here’s what you need:

Metal pipe pieces….we used 3/8″

2 discs {make sure they are the same size as your other pieces}

2 male 90 degree joints {make sure they are the same size as your other pieces}

1 pipe in the length that you need for your bar {we used 3/8″ pipe in 6″ length}

Here’s how ya do it:

1.  Screw all  pieces together….the 90 degree pieces to each end of your pipe, and then screw the discs onto each side. Super easy!

2.  Leave as is or paint in your choice of finish. {If you leave it as is I would suggest sealing it with a clear acrylic, they can sometimes be a bit greasy.}

Voila!

Hope you all are off to a great week~
