Whoa! You can't buy your own item.





Each piece is handmade by me. I'm always creating in my shop or searching for unique scraps of wood and items I can repurpose. Of course, I don't forge the iron pipes or screws myself -- those are purchased.

After I sand, clean, prime, paint, and assemble my raw pieces into the industrial creations they become, I coat them with several layers of PROTECTIVE ENAMEL to guard against rust and corrosion. This also protects your hands and belongings from the black iron residue, and ensures a vibrant sheen for many years.

Minimal assembly required. All my pieces come with MOUNTING HARDWARE INCLUDED (hollow wall anchors and screws). But please, use your own judgment when deciding if it's enough for the wall you're securing it to (and take into account the weight you'll add to it). And try your best to hit at least one stud for good measure.

Want custom colors or sizes? Try me. I'm always willing to please.

Pipe Size: 1/2" iron (sturdy but not too heavy)

Pipe Length: Pipes are 4" out from wall and 4" up. (I have other sizes available in my shop)

Shelf Size: 8"-12" minimum recommended depth for a shelf. With three brackets, this is perfect for a wider, heavier shelf to prevent sagging in the middle.


+ Use as pictured for funky, sturdy shelf supports.
+ Use both brackets on top of shelf to have a suspended shelf and something for books to lean against.
+ Use 1 bracket on top and 1 on bottom for a funkier look.
+ Use on both sides of a wooden crate and attach to wall.
+ Use the brackets solely as wall sconce candelabras.
+ Use them on an existing shelf as bookends.
+ Use at the top of your wall and connect to the ceiling just to make people ask questions. Blame it on a shoddy plumber.

BEWARE other sellers who use cheap, ugly wood or don't clean and coat their piping. You get what you pay for (and many times, you get much less).

A NOTE ON SHIPPING: I always find a cheaper price than the calculator. And yes, the difference will be refunded with glee!

A FUN NOTE: I name my pieces based on characters from my books.

I ordered three items from this shop. I am extremely pleased with all. The one thing I would recommend is to ask where their 23” measurement came from. I measured my existing towel rack which was being replaced at 23# at the mounting brackets hoping to use some of the same holes in the wall. This did not measure 23” from where I measured from. I just centered it up on the wall and was able to use the mollys at one end. It holds my over sized bath sheets and makes me smile!!
