This shelf with lower pipe bar combination has multiple uses. It's deep enough to hang a full size clothes hanger on it, so it would be great in a laundry room, kitchen pantry, nursery, towel storage, loft clothes and shoe storage. Need a industrial floating shelf with a rustic farmhouse vibe over the clothes washer and dryer, then look no further. Designed to last a lifetime, Shelf Depth = 8" (nominal) - 7 1/4" actual Shelf Thickness = 1 1/2" Shelf Width = 24" Towel Bar Width - 18" Towel bar is designed to extend far enough away from the wall so clothes hangers will fit under the shelf. We clean the pipe and fittings, then we coat the item with a satin varnish to eliminate the continual dirt and soot from getting on your hands and clothes yet retain the gun metal color. The stain is Early American color. We buy the wood from a sustainable mill, and is mildly distressed. The pipe and fittings have an outside diameter in excess of 3/4" . Please read our shop polices and FAQ's in their entirety prior to purchase.
