Pipe shelving is a trendy way to add storage space to just about any room. These galvanized pipe shelves are the centerpiece of a laundry room makeover by Brandi of Don't Disturb This Groove. See the tutorial on The Home Depot Blog.
We used this tutorial. We used to create shelves in my laundry closet. We sanded and rounded all the edges, stained w/Dark Walnut and sprayed with polyurethane. We then attached 5 iron scroll brackets to each shelf and studs where possible.
