    How Pinterest lead from idea to action


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     'As a person who embraces tech, Pinterest was a great fit,' says TurtleNW, who's only been using the site for about a week. 'After gathering several other pipe lamp images on my board, I couldn't stand not trying my hand at building one myself. So, I made a trip to Home Depot and bought the parts I wanted and put it all together.'
    - rachel8, CNN iReport producer

    Lamps have always been an interest of mine. The more interesting and less "cookie cutter" the better. I've been browsing various sites and have come across a number of lamps built using pipe fittings. The industrial look appealed to me. Recently I joined up on Pinterest and started keeping a board of project ideas. These pipe lamps started to take a center stage so I felt it was time to try my hand at making one. A trip to Home Depot and a reasonably small amount of money later, I had all my parts and came home to build it. The design is basically copied from someone else who did and Instructable on instructables.com. I modified the design and came up with my own interpretation. I think I would like some sort of shade to finish it off, but am very pleased with how it turned out.
