Black Pipe Shelves and Ladder

We have been working on customizing Trigg's room to make it feel more like a boy's room.  Trigg is always willing to help with projects, especially if he can use some tools.
 We built a ladder for his room using black pipe.  Nothing fancy but it gets the job done!
Then we built this shelving system.  We were inspired by this post Heather found on Pinterest from a blog - Beneath My Heart 
I used 2x10's for the top shelves.  The pipe runs through the boards on the front side and then sits on top of the 90 degree elbow on the back.
And a 2x10 and 2x8 joined together for the bottom shelf.  We stained everything dark to match the rest of his room, found studs to anchor the shelf to the wall and put everything up!
The ladder is installed by his door...
Both boys love to climb!
We use this cubes to put his clothes and there is plenty of shelf space for toys (and a Christmas tree)!
