DIY plant shelves that will transform any space!

With a growing plant collection, it was time to finally give my plant babies what they deserve - a plant shelf, or two!

I’m guessing plants like friends? They seem to grow better when with or near other plants.

Let’s get right to it, build yourself some simple plant shelves!

Spray paint

Table saw
Paint brush

Cut the wood to size based on how long and deep you want your shelves. Mine are 36 inches long and 8.5 inches deep. We used some thick plywood we had on hand, but you could use any type of wood.

Paint the polycrylic on the wood shelves. If you don’t like the natural look, you could always paint or stain them.

Spray paint the brackets. We already had a few brackets on hand, but you can buy all types at Lowe’s or Home Depot. Mine were black and I wanted them to be gold.

Screw the brackets into the wall and then attach the wood shelves to the brackets.

Side note - We used black screws. I don’t mind how it looks, but you could spray paint the screws if you wanted. However, the paint may come off once you screw them into the wall.

Add your plant babies!

It’s that simple. I LOVE how it transformed this space. Here’s a before and after!

Not into plants? You can still build these and add decor of your choice to your walls!
