Copper, the sleek material you can buy at a hardware store. Rustic yet polished, it’s no surprise why it is a popular choice for DIY projects. Here are some of the best copper DIY ideas that I have seen and been inspired by so far.
Tube Stands: In picture (1) a block of wood and some copper wire and pipe have been used to create a chemist vase – by A Merry Thought. Chelsea from Lovely Indeed has created a wall mounted test tube like copper wall planter (2). It is a simple and minimalist way of adding some plants into a room’s decor. For more plant decor ideas have a look at my post here: Elegant and Stylish Plant Decor Ideas.
Chairs: Room of Karma has upcycled old wooden chairs (3) by painting them with copper colored paint. The chairs in picture (4) are from Anthropologie and is not an actual DIY project. But by using metal instead of wooden chairs and painting them in copper spray paint you can get a whole different effect.
Hangers: Here are some great DIY ideas using copper piping – they are so stylish and minimalist. For the floating clothes rack (5), by Love Aesthetics, all you need to do is hang a long copper pipe using two hooks and metal cable. This would make a great looking coat rack by the front door.
The copper kitchen hooks DIY (6) comes from the Finnish blog, Bambula. They were made from half inch copper elbows. To find out how they were made, check out the pictures here.
Planters: To make the planters in picture (7), all you need are some cap fittings and ketchup (yup). Check out the tutorial over at Poppytalk.
