I’m hoping this gives you some ideas of the useful intentions of wall shelving.My first example is what my buddy Tony did with wall shelf in his living room.

At first, once the collection was small, they exhibited them on the coffee table and end tables in their living room. As time went on and also the collection got larger and larger, these gorgeous crystals needed a location dedicated to the collection.

After searching around online, Tony and Jennifer chose to proceed with a floating glass shelf system known as the ” Wave.” This stainless steel comes in sections 24 inches wide by 8 inches deep.
With all these wavy glass shelves, you can build them in a wave for as wide as you would like to go by incorporating a different 24-inch shelf side by side. Tony and Jennifer chose to proceed with two six foot long shelves above the fireplace. The shelves were about 18 inches above each other.
