Single & Double Acrylic Shelves
Gallery Challenge Solved!
When we decided to do a show including sculpture at the gallery I manage, we needed to come up with a way to display bronze works. Previously, we put only framed prints on the walls. After talking with a contractor and exploring various ideas, I found these single acrylic shelves online at The Container Store. I ordered a sample, installed it and was delighted that it blended with the wall AND was sturdy enough to support sculptures as heavy as eight pounds. We did make sure to mount the center of the shelves on studs, which wasn't a big deal.
Besides providing a great presentation in the gallery, these shelves show potential buyers how nicely figures can float on walls, intermingling with framed art.

Nothing could be better for storing perfume
Acrylic shelves are PERRRFECT for displaying my growing perfume collection. Perfume and eau de toilette bottles are lightweight, so I am not concerned about putting too heavy a load on these shelves. The bottles look pretty and really look as if they were floating in the air!! Note that the Container Store does sell cleaning products specifically designed for acrylic.

I have the double acrylic shelf in my bathroom to hold hand towels. I love the simple, elegant design that complements my beach-y decor. I installed the shelf nine years ago, and it is still as sturdy and straight as the day I bought it. A great value.

The quality of these shelves is impressive and pretty sturdy as far as the weight they can hold. I have 6 cameras sitting in one of the doubles and have packed the other to the t. Very happy with my purchase.
