While we’re all spending more time indoors and looking for things to do and ways to rearrange our living spaces, a good project is to figure out a new way to arrange house plants. The most efficient way to do this is with a brand new, DIY plant shelf. Embrace your obsession with tiny pots and little planters! No more finding a free nook in your home that gets enough sun but doesn’t disrupt the flow of day-to-day life! With a shelf solution, your plants will be proudly on display, all gathered together in one area for easy watering, and you’ll have something to brag down the road.
These adorable little plywood shelves come together by sliding one piece into the other and balancing a circular shelf on top. No nails, no screws, no glue. Just requires a bandsaw or jigsaw for cutting the wood. Click here for instructions.
An interesting copper shelf will really brighten up a room and be a nice conversation piece. As a freestanding shelf, this is easy to move around and even take apart if you need to. And you don’t have to use copper for this: grab some PVC pipe and spray paint it!
Find several of the same kind of wood crates. They don’t have to be the same size but they should all be the same depth. Dust off your old Tetris skills to arrange them in a fun and unique way. Once you’re happy, take a picture for later. If you’re going to paint, now is the time! Once completely dry, put them back into place and screw them together. Add little stools or coffee table legs to the ends to prop it up or just let it sit on the ground. VOILÀ!
Make sure you put your plant babies in an area with a lot of sunlight and enjoy your brand new greenery storage solution!
