Industrial Bed Made of Pipes
This industrial chic bed can be made by the use of steel rods. First of all, you need to measure the width of your mattress and then calculate the dimensions of your double bed accordingly. Start by making the frame of the bed by using steel pipes/rods. Once the frame is ready, you can get creative while designing the outlook of the bed. You can use key clamps to connect the pipes and make the head rails and foot rails of the bed. The clamps might need fixing once in a year, but they are long lasting and look very trendy.

Cut the angles according to the desired length of the table and then screw them to the wine crate by drilling a hole into it. Similarly, make the base of your table by using a wood board. You can also add wheels to give a sophisticated touch. Paint the legs in black or rust brown color to give a more industrial chic look.
