PVC is one of those inexpensive construction materials that is easy to cut, paint, drill, glue and create with. You can purchase straight tubes of different sizes, and matching connectors as well. Whether it’s to create a cool storage unit, or just something pretty, this is a great material for the beginning DIY’er to use. We got inspired by a PVC hair dryer / curling iron holder we spied on Pinterest, and put together this quick PVC project for all of you to help you corral that bathroom chaos! Then, since we got so jazzed about the idea of using PVC, we found some more DIY PVC projects for all around the home!
Let’s start with our PVC project- A hair dryer stand. This project is so easy, it really doesn’t even need a tutorial! We picked up a PVC “y” connector at Home Depot, painted it with a spray paint / primer combo, and glued some fishing weights to the inside bottom to keep it stable. Try “Gorilla Glue” for a good hold on the weights. Done! Since we made this we’ve seen something like it mounted on the inside of the vanity cabinet door… Genius!
This was our original DIY PVC project inspiration from Pinterest.
Ok, now a bunch more great PVC projects for you to try! From ‘Martha‘, this PVC modern wine rack is an easy afternoon project, and can fit into an existing cabinet. Easy directions.
This easy DIY PVC project is an awesome modern wreath from ‘A Beautiful Mess‘. If you can use a glue gun and some spray paint, you can make this! Full tutorial with lots of photos, this is the kind of DIY home decor everyone loves!
From ‘Land of Nod‘, this DIY desk or bathroom organizer is a great idea, and we knew some great blogger had thought the same thing… We were right! Jump on down to see the DIY version!
From Beth at ‘Home Stories A to Z‘, this DIY PVC shoe organizer is so cool because she painted it to look like logs! Cool project detail!
‘All Women Stalk‘ had this contemporary PVC cutout light that we thought was pretty cool, but the tutorial is pretty thin. While they tell you how to do the cutout with a jigsaw, I’ll tell you right now, they leave you hanging as to how to “get lamp parts”… Could you make this really simple and use mini lights inside each tube? Ideas, readers? Comment on this PVC project and share your ideas!
‘Dremel Weekends‘ shows us how to make this PVC table lamp (they use a LED candle in theirs) with step by step instructions.
This is an inspirational PVC project idea from ‘Sandindusa‘… No tutorial, but it is simply slices of different sized pvc pipe glued together to make a screen. We hear Liquid Nails or Gorilla Glue work pretty well for these types of projects.
‘HGTV‘ created this PVC wine glass holder by cutting a channel in the pipe, then hanging it upside down.
Make a modern PVC vase/centerpiece by ‘Ehow‘! Love this project, really elegant!
Last we have this amazing DIY chalkboard wine rack made with PVC and fiberboard. Brought to us by Apartment Therapy, the original instructions are in ReadyMade Magazine, which no longer exists… Would love to see a DIY’er try their hand at these types of DIY PVC projects! Two sections of board, cut pvc pipe sandwiched in the middle, chalkboard paint. Voila!
