Fun Projects You Can Do with Leftover PVC

Do you have PVC pipe leftover after a plumbing repair or new installation? Dont let it go to waste. At Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Youngstown, we provide high quality commercial and residential plumbing services for local clients including pipe installation, repair and replacement in Youngstown, Ohio and surrounding neighborhoods. We enjoy helping our customers get the most from their plumbing services. If you have a pile of PVC leftovers, then upcycle your materials with these fun and exciting Do It Yourself projects.

Shelves for Industrial Use

Do you need new shelves for your art studio, garage, workshop or warehouse? PVC pipe is strong and sturdy and can be put together very quickly. Create your own shelving that is easy to clean and rearrange with PVC pipe, appropriate fittings and slabs of wood. You can even make them look like iron or copper pipe with a little metallic spray paint.

Kids Toys

There are an almost unlimited number of creative PVC projects for childrens toys available online. Examples include an outdoor splash park, sand or water tables, tent frames soccer goals, parking garages for toy cars, play swords and shields and so much more. Get really creative and make a day of crafting that involves the whole family.

Dog Gates

Does your dog always seem to leap over or maneuver around your expensive dog gate? If you need your pet to stay out of certain rooms while you are at work or away on vacation, then use your leftover PVC to make a custom barrier that will keep Fido under control.

Clothes Drying Rack

Do you prefer to take the ecofriendly approach to laundry? Are you looking for a simple way to air dry delicate clothing? PVC pipes can be fitted together in T-sections with elbow joints. Make a custom rack and lay out your favorite cashmere sweater or hand-knitted socks without worry.

Stand for Laptops

Laptops can be very convenient but using them at a traditional desk can also be a little uncomfortable. Many people prefer to use a separate full-size wireless keyboard and mouse, while using their laptop screen as a separate monitor. However, this can place the screen at awkward angles. The best way to avoid this is to invest in a laptop stand that will slant the computer at the right level while providing support. While you could spend $50 to $100 for a laptop stand online, you could also create your own for free with your leftover PVC and 90-degree elbow joints.
