Hi friends! I’m so happy to be back to the blog! This past weekend was the biggest event of my Girl Scout year, and it was such a great event. The teens that I work with to put on the event are amazing, and they did a wonderful job! Here are some of my favorite snaps from the weekend.
And, now, I’m back to blogging and this week it’s all things COPPER!! Today’s project is so fun, and I’m excited to share the details. Since I’ve been so busy, Chelsea offered to be tagged in to create something for the blog. She’s been talking for a while about how it’d be nice to have a stand for the iPad for the kitchen, since she gets a lot of her recipes digitally. After a little research, we both loved the idea of a copper iPad stand, and it didn’t seem too challenging or expensive, so it was a win win!
We took a quick trip to Home Depot to pick up all the supplies. We didn’t have a copper pipe cutter, so that was $15, and then everything else was about $16, bringing our total to just over $32 with tax.
- 1/2 inch Copper pipe (We purchased 5 ft., the smallest length available)
- Tubing Cutter
- All below, to fit 1/2-inch piping:
- 2- 90 degree elbows
- 2 street elbows
- 2 tees
- 4 pipe caps
- Glue (Chelsea used E600 glue and it worked great)
First up, Chelsea cut the piping into seven lengths:
2- 4 inch
3- 6 inch
2- 1 inch
