Pipe Bracket Shelves - Dining Room Tour

I wanted to share a quick tutorial on our super simple pipe bracket shelves we made for our dining room.  I had been seeing these all over Pinterest and Etsy and figured we'd try to make our own!  Hopefully you can learn from a couple of the mistakes we made.

Pipe Bracket Shelves

I ordered the 12 inch pipe brackets off Amazon, but you can find them at Home Depot.  The only kind we could find there were silver, so you would need to use a metal spray paint to paint them darker.  We then went to the bulk lumber section and picked out a piece of wood that was extra knotty and rustic looking.  The first mistake we made was not picking out the correct board depth measurement.  I know, what in the world?!  So, we have extra shelves that we'll eventually use in our bathroom once we get more pipe brackets.

We went back and found another piece of knot filled lumber (in the correct size this time) and had the lumber associate at Home Depot cut it in thirds.  I decided to do 4 foot shelves and they are about 11.5 inches in depth.  Ryan doesn't have a router to make the edges rounded, so Ryan sanded the corners down so they weren't such sharp edges.  Then, we white washed it with a Minwax stain.  We used this same wash for a side table in our dining room so they matched perfectly!  Mistake number two was not waiting until the boards dried completely before staining them.  They ended up warping a bit, but you can't really tell too much.

Total cost for the wood was $10 (taking out the mistake in purchasing two!), brackets were $30 (for a set of 2) and stain was $20.  I don't think the total of $120 was too bad, plus we used the white wash on another piece of furniture.

I am so in love with these shelves and I love being able to display some of the pretty tableware that was hidden in my cabinets.  Pretty much everything you see on these shelves are from Homegoods/TJ Maxx/Marshalls so I can't link them, but I will try to find similar items.  I also shop at World Market and Target for a lot of home items! Please let me know if you have any questions on how we made these pipe bracket shelves!

I have updated this post as of July 2018, and I have to say I still LOVE our pipe bracket shelves.  They are still so fun to decorate and I'm pretty certain we'll keep them up for years to come.  Thanks for reading!
