allyson inspired by saw this post on apartmenttherapy: nursery a couple of months ago created her version using a stripa wall shelf and a sheet of acrylic.


“we had the acrylic cut at a local glass shop, and had them round the corners and drill three holes toward the bottom. we bolted the plastic through the pre-drilled holes in the shelf (we added one in the center for extra support) and attached the whole thing to the wall with a few L-brackets. it was so easy, and cost less than $30!”

    This is a great idea except that they are no longer carrying the shelf and it will be discontinued. Bummer. They are currently not carrying anything similar in style or price.

    Where did you find that awesome table? Is it a DIY table from Ikea that you added fabric or vinyl to? Please tell!

    This looks so cool. I want to adapt this for my latest new 12″ LP and Graphic Novel purchases.

    Good idea. I think it’d look even better if the plexi was cut flush w/the bottom of the shelf.

    Less than $30?! I asked at my local dealer and they wanted $90 for about the same size that was used in this project. So I gave it up. But now I know they definitely overcharged and I’m going to look elsewhere. Thanks!
