Hello! It’s September! After a summer-long hiatus we’re back, and I wanted to share some of the interiors and mini children’s room DIY projects I’ve been working on recently (I say projects, as it sounds a lot grander than basically messing around with *stuff*). So to start off, with here are our washi tape rain cloud shelves.
I ‘created’ these washi tape rain cloud shelves while waiting for everyone to get ready to leave the house one long, long summer holiday morning. I posted a picture of the cloud shelves over on my Instagram and had a whole load of comments, so I thought I’d add them here.
What we used to make the washi tape rain cloud shelves
- Cloud shelves. Ours were a set from Flying Tiger that stick to the wall. You can’t buy these ones online, annoyingly, but I’ve seen similar ones for sale on La Redoute and Not on the High Street
- Washi tape – ours is from HEMA but you can get it from any number of places, our favourites include Flying Tiger, IKEA and also book shops.
The shelves had been up for a while, and while they’re great for displaying all the millions of small things that are always just hanging around underfoot, I thought they looked like they needed something – and I liked the idea of colourful rain.
I used five similar tapes that went well together, and hung strips of them up freehand, under the cloud (they’re not exactly straight, but the great thing about the tape it that you can re-position it easily). The other great thing about washi tape is that it sticks to walls and doesn’t mark.
Yep, it really was as easy as it looks.
