How to use reclaimed bamboo to decorate a ceiling
The first step to building a ceiling is to start with bamboo.
The fibres are light and strong enough to absorb heat from the sun and can be easily cut.
This is especially important if you are building a floor or wall.
It’s also a great material for accents and accent wall trim.
Here’s how to make your own bamboo floor.
Cut a piece of 2.5cm x 1.5 cm bamboo.
A large piece of 1.75cm x 2cm bamboo can be cut down to a 1.25cm x 0.75 cm.
If you’re making a large wall or ceiling, consider using a bamboo floor for the uppermost part of the structure.
Cut out two pieces of bamboo, one with the sides and one without.
Place one piece in the middle and the other on the lower side.
You’ll need to place it in the correct orientation.
The other piece will then be used as a base.
Cut three bamboo pieces.
You can make up to 10 pieces using a couple of pieces each, depending on how many you need.
You might be tempted to cut more than this if you have more bamboo available, but remember that this is a temporary wall and can easily be removed.
Using a ruler, measure out one piece of the two-sided bamboo, leaving an equal distance between the two sides.
If using the left side, measure one inch and add an inch or so to the right side, if you’re using the right.
Using an offset tool, mark where the bamboo should go.
The bamboo piece should be aligned with the side it will be cut on.
You will want to cut along the centre line, not along the edge.
You may need to use a bit of chalk or tape to mark this.
Using another offset tool to mark where you want to place the bamboo piece, cut out the piece from the centre.
You don’t need to cut all the way through.
It can be left unadorned or carved.
Using your offset tool and a sharp knife, carefully cut out two bamboo pieces from the left and right sides of the piece you just cut.
Mark the area you want your bamboo to sit on.
It will be easier if you use the left edge of the bamboo.
Cut along the line that connects the bamboo to the wall or floor.
This will give you a rough outline for the placement of your bamboo piece.
Mark your space and mark where to place your bamboo.
Your bamboo piece will be facing down.
Place your bamboo over the wall.
The side facing up should be on the wall and the side facing down on the floor.
Measure out two more bamboo pieces, placing them on either side of your desired piece of bamboo.
These will be used to fill in the space between the bamboo and the wall, so the floor is facing up.
Your piece should then be placed on top of your existing bamboo.
You now have two bamboo floors and one bamboo ceiling.
You’re almost there!
The next step is to remove the bamboo floor and ceiling and add some finishing touches to make the rest of your project more stylish.
Use a piece that’s 1cm thick to fill the gap between the floor and the ceiling.
Use another piece to give a little extra support to the floor, so you can walk on the carpet.
And finish off with a bamboo accent wall, with the bamboo sitting on top.
You have completed your bamboo floor, ceiling and bamboo accent.
Now you can decorate the walls, floors and ceilings.
Here are some tips on how to decorating a ceiling and floor: 1.
Decorate ceiling panels.
The more panels you create, the better the floor will look and feel.
Place two or three panels to give the ceiling a little more dimension. 2
