Materials needed

To build the stand I used five 10' lengths of 1-1/2" PVC (plumbing) pipe. This leaves me with enough for two sections for hanging the background materials. You will also need eight T-joints and two 90 degree elbows. I also used eight endcaps, to make a neater finish on the feet sections. Total cost should be less than $50.

Do not forget a can of PVC cement,; as you are not using liquids in the pipes, primer is not necessary.

I was thinking about doing this to but I want to make one to be able to break down easy to take with you. and I thought about putting shower curtain hooks on the material, you can put more material and just pull it back and forth. you don't want the background to be real noticeable you want your subject to be.
