DIY Plumbing Supplies Clothing Rack Tutorial from Love Aesthetics here. I had a friend look at this to make sure this looked liked PVC pipe and he agreed that he thought it was. PVC pipe is so cheap and easy to cut with a hack saw (I’ve made room screens with it using plastic elbows). My friend also said that the brass pipe fittings looked nice but you could buy much cheaper ones and that you’d need a PVC glue (basically a contact cement) to hold it together. There was one comment on the blog about the pipe scratching the wall - not a problem because this isn’t metal pipe and the ends are easily padded with something like felt or tape.

truebluemeandyou: Sparkly Tablescape - Better photo. I stuck to the 1 photo rule, but then saw all these other sites posting the entire tutorial and tons of photos (the foreign sites always do this like LeFruFru here). This was one download of a block of photos, so does it count as one?

DIY Button-Down Vase. Cute idea, can arrange them anyway you want, good centerpiece. Tutorial at Family Chic here. At first I thought, oh no, I’d have to make buttonholes, but then I read the instructions again and:


The front center placket on a menswear shirt (where the shirt sides join to be buttoned) was cut off the shirt and buttoned together to hold small glass votives in place for a simple centerpiece.


Now I get it! This now turns into a simple, great project where I can go to goodwill or use an old, outdated shirt here, and do this project. SO EASY and clever.
