DIY interior decor: Glass shelving
Transform an alcove or an empty wall with glass shelving and highlight the square of the wall around shelves by painting it a different colour. Mark out your square on the wall using a spirit level, ruler and pencil. Get three glass shelves cut to size, making them at least 25cm shorter than the width of your sqaure. If you already have glass shelves, mark out the square according to their size, allowing an extra 25cm of width. Once you have marked out your square, mask around the area with masking tape. Paint the square using coloured emulsion. Allow to dry and then apply a second coat. Fix up the shelves.
You will need: spirit level, ruler, pencil, glass shelves, masking tape, coloured emulsion paint, paintbrush, shelf brackets, wallplugs, drill, screws, screwdriver.
