Exposed Copper Pipes As Home Decor

Exposed Copper Pipes As Home Decor

copper is a pretty soft metal and it will not hold up to a lot of these uses

Some cleaver ideas Remodelista. However - the price of copper is through the roof right now here in Canada and there are a lot of thieves wanting it.
