Over the years, we posted a good number of stylish housewares made from copper or black pipe, from closet fittings to faucets to table bases and pot racks, all diy-able. But we realize that sometimes we don’t diy because we don’t really have a sense of the essential workings of the process: how do we actually do it?  Recently, Izabella Simmons over at Remodelista took some photos that convey the gist clearly: essential “maps” of diy fittings that immediately made us get how easy it is.
