Undoubtedly this indicated taking everything down off the walls, and I’ve taken my time deciding what to fill that fantastic, white expanse of wall on the stairway. I wanted to attempt to present some plants there if I could, however I could not work out rather how to go about doing it. B&Q’s. current press show, and saw some smart wall hooks made using plywood– we were even offered a tutorial sheet to take house. All of us know what a fan I am of. utilizing plywood in interiors and an idea started to take shape.
B&Q had actually also sent me a helpful tutorial for a hanging planter when I dealt with my. Spring Summer styling post. I chose that I ‘d use both concepts at as soon as, and make a set of hanging planters to hang from plywood hooks arranged across the staircase wall. While Ben was charged with building the hooks, I started on the macram\u00e9 wall mounts.
Ben knocked up the hooks for me using 18mm plywood, wooden dowel rod (20mm) and dowel screws. The tutorial from B&Q had the plywood shape screwed onto the dowel, but we cheated and used wood glue (to prevent having to fill screw holes on the front). pots and plants all originated from my regional B&Q store. .
Instructions for the hanging planter (adjusted from. the B&Q tutorial. )
- Procedure 8 lengths of string (mine determined 1m long), and tie them completely in a knot at one end.
- Different them into pairs, and knot each pair together, around 7cm from the big knot at the end.
- When all four sets have actually been knotted together, knot one string from one set with a string from the adjacent pair (I left about 8cm from the last knot), to produce a zigzag impact. I repeated this two times, developing what looks practically like a fishing internet.
- Sit the plant pot onto the huge knot at the bottom, raise all the lengths of string around the pot and tie in a knot at the very leading, which can loop over the hook.
Directions for the hooks (adapted from the B&Q tutorial)
- Mark out your shape onto the plywood (we made circles, triangles and squares, however you might try any shape), secure it and cut out with a saw.
- Exercise how deep you desire your hook, mark the dowel and saw the needed length.
- Drill a pilot hole in the centre of the dowel and attach the dowel screw.
- Apply wood glue to the other end of the dowel and fix to the centre of the plywood shape.
