linen pillow covers DIY Pipe Table Tutorial pillow covers farmhouse

Hello lovely readers! Many of you have complimented the DIY pipe table that we made for our new eat-in-kitchen area, so today we are sharing with you full details of how we made it. First, let me show you our inspiration, which came from one of my favorite stores–;West Elm. I fell in love with the West Elm Workshop Table. But the large size retails for $1,999.00. Yeah, that wasn't going to happen…;

SO, we decided to make our ownlinen pillow covers, and we were able to do it for less than $200.00 ($180.00, to be exact)! Let me tell you that this is an EASY project that took us much longer than it should have (isn't that the worst). I'll explain why as we move through the tutorial.

Note that all plumbing is 1 inch in diameter. Also, the lengths listed below INCLUDE the length that will be threaded. You do not need to add length to account for threading your materials together.

Home Depot will cut your pipe to length AND thread it. But you should know that this can be time-consuming. Joe went to get the pipe cut while our girls were napping one day. He came home 3 hours later. I'm not joking. There were a few problems. First, Home Depot had a problem with the threading machine that had to be fixed. Then, once the machine was fixed, not all of the threaded pipes actually worked correctly {Joe was testing each one by screwing on a t-joint}. Truth be told, not many of them worked correctly. So they had to be done again. There's a whole lot of cuts and threading. That's a long way of saying, be prepared to hang out at Home Depot or Lowe's for a while.

1) First, you have to CLEAN all the grime and grease off of your pipe.

2) Assembly is pretty self-explanatory, but you can reference the “;Anatomy of a DIY Pipe Table”; photo below if you have questions about which lengths go where. Thread all of your pieces together. Bear in mind that the floor flanges will actually be on the top of your table–;the flanges are what your tabletop will sit on. The pipe caps will go on the bottom of the legs. I mention this because it's somewhat counter-intuitive and seems like it should be reversed.

3) If you are working with galvanized pipe and want the look of a black base, you can spray paint your assembled pipe base. That's what we did, but I have to tell you that after 3 years of our metal kitchen chairs banging into it, there's definitely some chipping. So yeah, you are better off if you can start with dark iron pipe.

1) Rip down one side off of the outer table top boards AND both sides of the middle board. This will give you nice, square edges so that when you attach the pieces, they fit snugly together. We had some, errrrr, “;user errors”; in this process, so it took MUCH longer than it should have. But, in the end, it all worked out.

2) Cut your boards to length. Our boards are 66 inches long.

3) Attach your boards. We used our Kreg Jigto attach our boards. We also reinforced the joints with two braces made frompieces of wood that Joe ripped down and cut to length. We screwed the lengths of wood directly to the table top.

4) After a light sanding, we stained our table top. Use used Minwax Polyshades Gloss Wood Stain-Classic Black. This stuff is awesome because it is stain and poly all in one, which meant less work for us. We applied two coats.

5) After your stain has dried, attach your table top to your pipe table base.

That's it. I LOVE our table! It's the perfect size for the space and the finish on the wood top is amazingly durable, especially considering it gets wiped down several times every day.

We saved about$1,800.00 by building our own table and it's exactly what we wanted! It's the perfect finishing touch on our kitchen makeover that cost us less than $700.00 to complete.
