It’s been a longtime since I’ve run across a really fun DIY PVC project that has me really excited to give it a go! Just imagine all of the possibilities in doing this project yourself. You could make really cool outdoor Tiki lamps, added home decor, etc..
PVC never rots like real wood does and best of all, it’s real simple and affordable to do yourself. So why not give it a shot. Read the tutorial below — Here’s a quick overview list of supplies you’ll need:
– PVC, Any size you want.
– Heavy Metal File. Mine has Rasp and Double Cut sides. An 8-inch file like this costs $9 at any hardware store.
– 100 Grit Sandpaper
– Artist Oil Paint. You can use acrylic, but it may chip off unless you seal it.
– Wire Brush, for clearing the file’s teeth of PVC.
– Dust Mask, to prevent PVC dust from getting in your lungs.
