DIY Floating Minimalist Pipe Accessory Organizer

May 21, 2018

I have a lot of sun glasses that are often scattered all over my house or my car and sometimes when I plan out my OOTDs I often can't complete the look with a sunglass that looks so well with my ensemble because most of the time I cannot find the specific pair that Im looking for. So I'm currently organizing my stuff, my closet mostly and I decided to DIY something I can organize my accessories In. 

At first I thought of doing like huge wall pockets, but that didn't seem "manageable" to me in the long run, those who have wall pockets know what I mean, they collect dust, they're hard to clean, the list goes on. So I looked through all my supplies hoping to get inspiration, and I came across these long metal pipes from an old "fabric cabinet" (You know the wardrobe with the fabric linings and a zipper to close it, I saved the pipes from that old one). And since this was a recycle diy it literally cost me nothing.

Anyway here I go with the DIY...

  • Metal Pipes (Copper pipes work too)
  • Pipe cutter
  • Nylon
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Sand Paper
  • Marker

Step 1: Clean the pipe, you can do this using metal polisher for best results, or toothpaste if you're feeling kinda thrifty, since these are old pipes I cleaned it twice using toothpaste and a brush.

Step 2: Measure out the length you'd want your accessory organizer to be. mine is 7.5 inches, and mark it using your marker.

Step 3: Use a pipe cutter to cut your pipe where the mark is. I made 3 7.5inches pipes cuz I want three layers only. You can add as many as you want.

Note: If you don't know how to use a pipe cutter here's how you should do it.
-Loosen the pipe cutter first using the knob on the side, once it's big enough for your pipe to be placed inside, well, place the pipe in between.
-Tighten the pipe cutter using the knob once again until you have secured your pipe into place.
-Keep on twisting your pipe until the other half falls off.

Step 4: Sand the edges of the pipe using  a metal sand paper. This is done to prevent you from breaking skin from the sharp edges of the pipe

Step 5: Cut a long piece of nylon. and thread the pipes starting at the lowest tier, then work your way up.


Since I already had all the materials on hand this DIY cost me nothing. However should you start from scratch..

Metal Pipes (most hardware stores)                P50-100/piece
Pipe cutter (most hardware stores)                 P250
Nylon                                                               P20/spiel
Sand Paper                                                     P10

TOTAL                                                             P330-380

Now 330php is pretty steep for such a simple DIY but note that the most expensive part of this DIY is the Pipe cutter, which can be reused specially at home repairs or if your a frequent DIY such as myself.

  • This is such an easy and cheap DIY to make but the results look nothing but.
  • It can be used as dish cloth rack, an organizer for some cooking tools, you can hang just about anything.
  • It's simple, minimalist, which makes it the perfect hanging organizer because it doesn't add to the eyesore clutter you used to have

Thank you so much for sticking with me till the end, I love to challenge so much, I'd love to do it again, and I'm currently redecorating my room/home office so there sure is plenty more to come. If you like this DIY make sure to visit my previous DIY Traveler's "I was here" corkboard
