Many people are making DIY home decor and furniture out of stainless steel pipes for their interior homes. Everything from hanging beds, light fixtures and benches to curtain rods and shelving organizers…the possibilities are endless. Not only are DIY pipe decorations versatile, but they also are simple to assemble as well.

Pipe Hanging Beds

  1. For each bed, cut 2 pieces of 2” x 12” to 78 1/2” and 2 pieces to 38” of wood (save the scraps for the blocking in the ceiling). 
  2. Pre-drill your holes and screw 3” lag bolts in with washers from the side into the end pieces of the other 2” x 12” piece. Repeat this step and do the top and right side of the bed top and bottom as well.
  3. Line up the bottom edges and screw them into the sides with wood screws.
  4. Cut some more wood to create slats for the width of the bed. Eight slats are recommended.
  5. Attach the elbows and flanges to the head and foot of the bed.
  6. Arrange your bed(s) where you’d like for them to hang from the floor.
  7. Pre-drill holes where the flanges will be placed and stick a wire into the ceiling so that you’re able to see where the bed(s) will hang.
  8. Screw the flanges into the ceiling with 2 1/2″ lag bolts.
  9. Screw and tighten your threaded pipes into the flanges on the ceiling and screw the elbows onto the bottom.
