What to do with a plumbing pipe going straight through your bathroom? Most times the solution would be to build a cabinet around it. However, with the window right there, we were stuck with it. So, I decided to make the best of it and turn it into a feature. First thing was a paint job with a distressed finish. See the close up below. Then copper-coloured tin pails were hung on hooks – one for storage of toiletry items and 2 more for natural looking decor. Finally, a hand towel over the rounded pipe to give it a real function as a towel bar!
