1. Birch Log Shelf
- several birch logs
- 5 shelves
1.1 First grab yourself 4 equally long pieces of a birch trunk – they're going to be the shelf legs. Saw the 4 stumps to size and screw them to the bottom of the lowest shelf.
1.2 Now you need several more logs of the same length for the different shelf levels. Screw them to the shelves just as you did with the legs and then put the whole shelf together.
1.3 If you feel like it, you can glue a few more birch pieces to the shelves so it looks like there's a tree growing through them. And there you have it – the coolest shelf of all time!
2. Tree Branch Lamp
- several branches, same length and medium thickness
- hot glue
Simply glue the branches upright to the lamp and tie a piece of cord around them. Place the lampshade on the frame and your tree branch lamp is ready to go.
3. Tree Branch Coat Rack
- several branches
- spray paint
Spray paint the branches in the color of your choice and attach each one to the board with 2 screws.
