How to Build a Copper Pipe Side Table
Make your own copper side table from scratch! We used copper pipes for the base and laminate flooring planks for the tabletop. Mix and match materials to make a one-of-a-kind design to suit your decor style.
Our bedside table is the stuff that (thrifty) dreams are made of! We spent some time in the plumbing aisle choosing copper pipe and elbows (the curved pieces) to fashion into an easy table. You can even have your pipe cut at most home improvement stores if you don't have easy access to a pipe cutter.
If you want your table to stay bright and shiny, be certain to finish the pipe: First scratch with emery paper, then seal it with a clear coat to avoid continued oxidation of the pipe. Ready to get started? Our how-to guide gives you step-by-step instructions for creating the copper table.
