Re: How do you display your glasses?
Here are some shelves I made from funeral home shipping trays. Very easy. Call your local funeral home and ask if they have any used wood bottom based air trays or shipping trays, if they don't, have them call you the next time they get one, because they are just going to throw them away. Some are wider than others. They will have nylon straps and handles that can easily be cut off. I went to Lowes hardware and bought strips of wood (cheap!) 4" wide and had them cut them into the number of shelves I wanted. Then you just screw or nail the shelves into place. EASY! You will notice that I put too much space in between the shelves of the nudie glass shelf (I will get rid of this one and make a new one after I get more nudie glasses), some of the shelves on one of the Looney shelf aren't too straight, I made the spaces between the jelly shelf smaller because the glasses are smaller. You can lean them up against the wall, attach L brackets to the shelf and the wall. I used two coats of spray paint on the nudie glass shelf and it didn't work well, the wood absorbs the paint, I guess you could prime it, use higher quality spray paint or regular latex paint.https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=483520831685511&set=o.344575905568411&type=1&relevant_count=4&ref=nf
