I found myself frozen in front of the PVC pipe section in the hardware store the other day because I couldn’t stop thinking of all the things that I could actually make from these strong cylinders. The shape and range of sizing made me realize that there are so many ways to store and organize all my clutter at home. Well this really is genius, and there isn’t much work that goes into making this modern wine rack of PVC piping.
A good way to store them separately it just to cut some piping down to size and use the pieces as individual compartments in a drawer.
This is really cute and clever actually – just cut some thinner PVC pipes so that you can glue them together and use them as one cohesive desk organizer for all your stationery. Your hair dryer should fit in perfectly in the larger hole, and there’s even a smaller slot for your brush, straightener or curling iron.
So not only do you get to store your wine (or other bottles) in an easy-to-grab manner, but you also get this wonderful chalkboard panel that can serve as a grocery list, reminder, or just a fun place to scribble or doodle. Garages tend to get cluttered really easily – I think people feel that it’s the one room where it’s ok to just toss everything in.
These specific cylindrical shelves are actually made from cardboard, but it’ll be a lot easier if you simply get one of the largest sized PVC pipe and just have that cut. If you want to keep your curling iron or hair straightener out of sight completely, then you can simply attach PVC pipes to the inside of your vanity door. Wall storage is always a great idea when a room is starting to get a little too cluttered – when things are off the floor and desks it already looks a million times better. If you’re stuck with this problem with an overstocked craft room then you can make yourself this lovely PVC pipe shelving unit.
Here’s a fun back-to-school project for the kids – a PVC pipe pencil case! With a bit of crafty ingenuity, you can make a gorgeous multifunctional table centerpiece with a few pipes. If your little ones tend to leave their toothbrushes and toothpaste strewn across the sink, then perhaps a bit of organizing is needed.
This clever DIYer made slanted shelves from PVC pipes in her son’s nursery room. Mounted by the changing station, the storage compartments now offer easy access to all things baby, from blankets and towels to bottles and hygiene supplies. Many people have hooks on the inside of their kitchen cabinet doors to store their measuring spoons and cups, but someone has come along with the fantastic idea to use pipes as holders instead.
I’m pretty sure this save a lot of annoying swinging and clanging every time the door is opened! If you have a pegboard in your garage, craft room or workshop, then you can save on space even further by making separate compartments with pipes.

After putting you PVC pipe puzzle together, you’ll have a sturdy tape dispenser that even has a little holder for your scissors too! If you’re really clever, you can find the right sized pipe so that your paint tubes or bottles fit in snugly.
A bit of paint on the caps makes it super easy to spot what is what, so pulling out the one you need is quick and painless. I’ve seen so many lovely bracelet and bangle racks like these, but I quickly realized how easy it actually is to make my own DIY version. Those bars could easily be replaced with PVC piping that you just need to cut to the right length and then keep sturdy with a base.
When one side of a pipe is cut at an angle, it’s very simple to lean it against the wall and screw it in place.
You can even color code the pipes so that finding something is as easy as looking in the designated section.
