In this review, the author will share the idea as his own to make a small wall shelf for your home using cement mortar and plywood (can be replaced with a piece of Board).
As you might guess, the regiment itself will be made of plywood, and the concrete will make the holders for it.
And the first thing you need to do is collect a form for pouring the cement mortar. Prepare all necessary details (you can make them from plywood or plastic), then fastened using a hot-melt adhesive.
If you are not able to make a separate shelf for pots with houseplants, I advise you to read how to make a simple wooden stand for flower pot.
What additional resources will be required
For the reinforcement of concrete holders, the author uses plastic rods (from the hanger), but nothing prevents the use of rods made of metal will be more reliable.
You will also need two metal mounts for the holders. They are steel round rods, to one end of which is welded plates with holes.
After he produced two forms, you can start kneading solution. Will do it of cement, sand and water. Pour the solution into molds.
Set of reinforcing elements. Metal rods mountings lubricating oil and insert into the solution. The upper part of the fasteners, glue to a piece of plastic or plywood.
After hardening of the concrete, dismantle the formwork and remove the attachment. The shelf holders are processed with sandpaper.
In the wall drill holes, hammered the dowels, and then fasten the fixing metal. Installed concrete holders.
From a piece of plywood cut a shelf the right size, covered it with stains, mineral oil or varnish on wood. Insert the shelf into the slots in the holders.
