So recently I found myself needing more shelves for my collection of figures. I wanted something low profile and kind of modern looking, so I could maximize the amount of shelves I put up. I was also interested in plexiglass shelves so you could see the figures from any angle. But alas, after days of searching I was only able to find slatwall shelves or shelves that cost $10 a piece! Not only that, they only came in one size.
Needless to say, I didn't want to pay that much for a sheet of bent plexiglass, so I decided to make my own. The materials used were all bought from Lowes* for around $20 total. I got 4 shelves out of this, 2 6"x12" and 2 6"x18", but you can make whatever size you want! These shelves in my opinion are very conservative and modern looking. I hope you enjoy!
*You can get everything at Home Depot, but I don't think they have a plexiglass cutter so you'll have to do it yourself.
Step 1: Materials
As I said before, all materials here were purchased and Lowes for around $20.
*Plexiglass - 4 shelves for $6
*Nuts and Bolts - $1
*Drill bit - Already had, but probably $2
*Bracket - 4 for $4
*Drill - There's no reason you should have one of these ;P
*(Optional) Level - $3 Not necessary if you trust your eyes.
*(Optional) Drywall Anchors - Only necessary if you are drilling without a stud. I needed these.
