Galvanized pipe creations

How Many things can you make from galvanized pipe?  We haven’t stopped counting yet!  Just measure your space and go to the hardware store pipe section.  You can test fit all the pieces before you buy them, keep them the same size and check which is cheaper black or regular galvanized.  Then spray everything at home after you put it together.  We used Oil rubbed bronze spray paint by Rustoleum.  If you let it dry for at least 4 hours it has less chance of scratching.  Things you paint don’t really cure for about a week.

Needless to say, once we got started on galvanized, it became a theme!  One that saved us buco bucks!
