5 DIY Projects You Can Achieve With Plywood

Plywood Direct’s range is a versatile and affordable material that can be used for various DIY projects. Its lightweight nature and smooth surface make it ideal for both indoor and outdoor applications. If you're looking to embark on some creative endeavours, here are five simple DIY projects you can easily tackle using our Okoume Plywood.

Floating Shelves

Floating shelves provide functional storage space with a touch of style to any room. With Plywood, you can create sturdy and visually appealing floating shelves. Measure and cut the plywood into desired shelf sizes, sand the edges and enjoy their signature pink (and sometimes glossy) finish. Install the shelves using hidden brackets and you have yourself a stylish and practical storage solution.

Wall Art

Okoume plywood can be used by artists to create wall art. Cut the plywood into square, rectangular or hexagonal shapes, and paint away. Arrange and mount these pieces on a larger plywood panel or directly on the wall to create a piece of wall art with the natural texture of plywood. 

Planters and Garden Boxes

If you have green fingers and want to add some natural colour to your home, Okoume Plywood can be used to create beautiful planter boxes. Cut the plywood and assemble them into rectangular or square shapes. Line the inside with a waterproof material, such as a plastic sheet or pond liner, to protect the wood from moisture. Fill the planters with soil, and you're ready to start planting your favourite indoor flowers, herbs, or vegetables for the garden.


Build custom cabinets that perfectly fit your needs. Whether you're designing a kitchen, bathroom, or even a living room cabinet, Okoume Plywood offers the versatility, durability and smooth finish required for a professional-looking result. By carefully measuring, cutting and assembling the plywood panels, you can craft cabinets that maximise storage and elevate the visual appeal of your space. 

Bed Headboard

Give your bedroom a personalised touch by crafting a headboard from our plywood. Measure and cut the plywood into a headboard shape and size. Sand, stain or paint to match your bedroom decor. Attach the headboard to the bed frame or mount it directly on the wall behind the bed. This simple DIY project will instantly upgrade the look and feel of your bedroom.
