For the office? Paint pipe a bright metallic and the wood a washed color? V Scaffolding Boards and Dark Steel Pipe Wall Mounted and Floor Standing Industrial Chic Shelving/Bookcase - Bespoke Urban FurnitureDesign
*Could use this idea to make shelves for bourbon bottles* DIY industrial style desk made with butcher block wood and painted galvanized pipe, floor flanges, and elbows. Lag bolts used through flanges for disassembly.
Scaffold board shelves I love this and means we could have bottom shelves deeper and whatever spacing we wanted BUT I don't trust the walls, the chimney breast is brick and a mess so think starting to drill in to it could end in disaster
