As many of you know my hubby is a musician. He only has about 482 guitars...so maybe I'm exaggerating a little but he has A LOT! He has a guitar stand that holds 5 but he had outgrown that. He went searching for multi-guitar stands online but they were right at $100! He knew I'd have a baby cow so he went searching for a way to cut costs....did I tell ya' I taught him right!?
He found the instructions on how to create one online using PVC piping. He made me a list and I went to Lowe's and picked it up because I was off work that day. You will not believe how little this thing costs! It would also make a great gift for any friends/family that you have who are musicians. Check out the break down:
All Piping and fixtures are 3/4 inch in diameter.
1 10 Ft PVC Pipe $1.68
5 caps .20 each = $1.00
1 piece (6 ft) insulated pipe wrap $1.18
14 T's .29 each = $4.06
6 elbows .28 each = $1.68
4 oz (smallest you can buy) jar of PVC cement $3.38 for the jar, he used 1oz = $.95
GRAND TOTAL (tax included because I had to pay it too) $11.29
Estimated Savings = $88.71 = almost 89%
How cool is that?!?! As I mentioned, this is a GREAT gift idea! It took hubby about 1 hour to complete it and it looks awesome as you can see below:
If you want to cover the white piping you could always do so with all of the various colors of Duck Tape they have out now. I suggested the Tie-Dyed one to hubby. I think that will probably be done later!
NOW for the PIMPED out Guitar Stand....We have some kinda black n' white zebra thingie going! CUTE!!
Until Next Time...Rocking Out w/ Our Cheap Guitar Stand,
