How to start: It’s a bit like building a puzzle, but if you follow these simple steps you should be done in no time:

  1. To form the legs - Connect 2 x 150mm Pipes to each end of a T-piece. Connect an elbow to each Pipe end.
  2. To form the upright sections – Connect each 1 meter Pipe to the T-Piece of each foot, then screw on the straight connector on each pipe and connect the 300mm Pipes.
  3. To form the individual legs – Connect an elbow to the top of the one upright pipes and a T-Piece to the other upright pipe.
  4. To form the cross-bar – Connect the 750mm Pipe between the elbow and T-Piece at the top of each upright leg.
  5. To form the hat-stand section – Connect 2 x 150mm Pipes with nips and T-Pieces between them, each T-piece’s horizontal hole facing a different direction, connect to the top of the T-Piece on the one upright pipe of the stand. Finish off each pipe with an end cap.
  6. Give it a stylish finish by spraying with any colour of Rust-oleum’s metal finish spray paint.
