Instructions

Step 1

Cut Sheets and Glue

Take 3/4" thick plywood and cut six 11"x17" sheets using Table Saw. Glue the sheets by pairs to get 3 sets or boards. Clamp them together and let glue dry. I usually leave it overnight for glue to dry completely.

Step 2

Once the glue dries, print out 11x17 templates provided in the PDF and glue the them on top of each board using regular kids paper glue.

Step 3

Cut out shapes

Cutting out Cloud Shapes

Using a band saw, cut out the cloud shapes. Cutting with Jig Saw might work as well, but band saw works much better.

Step 4

Attaching Cloud Shapes Together

I designed the cloud shapes to overlap each other so that the entire cloud holds together stronger.  Find a flat surface and place the first layer of cloud shapes. Glue the first and second layer together interlocking the shapes. Also, use Nail Gun with Brad Nails to secure it in place. Repeat with 3rd layer. Clamp it together and let the glue dry. Once the glue dries send it to remove rough or uneven edges.

Step 5

Drill pocket holes in cloud

Pocket Holes for Wall Attachment

To attach the cloud to the wall, use Stud Finder to locate studs and mark it on the wall. Place the cloud on the wall at the desired location and height and transfer the marks onto the cloud. Using a Kreg Jig Mini, drill a pocket hole for 3/4" wood thickness on the inside of the cloud, but use 2 1/2" Pocket Hole Screws to attach it to the wall.

Step 6

Stain and Paint

Stain or paint before attaching the cloud to the wall.  I used Jacobean Stain as my first layer. Than after stain dries my second layer was Chalky Finish pain. To apply Chalky Finish , spray water on the cloud and apply the paint using a rag.  Wipe off extra paint with a dry rag. I also used polyurethane as my last layer to secure the paint and stain. That's it, you’re done with this beautiful Cloud Toilet Paper Storage.
