YOU WILL NEED
● dressed pine plank (Bunnings will cut to your desired size) ● electric drill ● 10mm drill bit ● rope ● scissors ● stud finder ● pencil ● brass ceiling hooks
1 Drill a hole in each corner of the pine, about 2cm from the edges.
2 Cut two lengths of rope to hang the shelf at desired height (ours are 2m long).
3 Feed one rope down through one hole in pine, then up through the other hole on the same side. Repeat for remaining rope and opposite end of pine.
4 Position the rope so that it is centered. Tie 3 string knots at the top of the rope and trim excess.
5 To find the studs in your ceiling, hover the stud finder over the ceiling. Be sure to avoid any electrical cables.
6 When you’ve found the studs, mark with a pencil where you will position the ceiling hooks.
7 Screw the hooks into the ceiling. 8 Hang the shelf and add plants.
