HANG­ING SHELF

Homes+ (Australia) - - STYLE & DECORATE -

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

HERE’S HOW

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.
