How to hang glass shelves using bingo brackets

Today I will show you how I hung the glass shelves in our recently renovated bathroom. I knew I wanted to hang floating shelves simply because I wanted a shelf that would give a modern feel but not take up a lot room. I considered using pine wood for the shelf but it didn’;t give that clean fresh lined look I wanted so in the end, I opted to purchase the glass shelves at Home Depot along with the brushed nickel finished bingo brackets. The brackets are fairly inexpensive and they were surprisingly, very easy to install.

I purchased the Mural brand glass shelves and bingo brackets from Home Depot.

Next, determine on the wall where you want your shelves to be and draw a line using your level. I am a visual person so I always mark the wall with a pencil. I like to see the lines visually before I start drilling holes! It’;s much easier to wash off the pencil then it is to fill mistaken holes.

Then measure and mark with a pencil where to drill your pilot holes.

Once you drill your holetoddler pillow cases, insert the plastic anchor. The kit comes with metal anchors as well. The type of wall you have will determine the type of anchor to use. I was not drilling into a stud but simply into sheet rock so I opted to use the plastic anchor. Gently tap the plastic anchor into your hole. If it doesn’;t go in easily, get a bigger drill bit and make the hole bigger.

The anchor is now placed into the wall.

Next, remove your drill bit (that you used to drill your pilot holes) and screw the long metal bracket into the plastic anchor in the wall. Use your drill to screw the long metal screw (bracket) into the wall.

Screw slowly into the plastic anchor.

You will screw to the point where the metal stop is on the rod, leaving about an inch showing. Notice that the “;metal”; stop is screwed into the wall leaving on the threads showing to attach the bracket to.

Next, add the round washer and then screw the end of the bracket to the metal rod in your wall.

Screw rod into the wall.

Use a small level to ensure that the rod/bracket is level.

Add your glass shelves and use a larger level to ensure that they are straight and lined up with one another.

I chose to hang three glass shelves using six bingo brackets. The entire process for all three shelves took under 45 minutes. Once you do one, the others move much quicker.

I chose to add some hand towels and bath accessories.

By adding glass shelves with the brushed nickel bingo brackets, we took a bare wall in our bathroom and transformed it to a functional wall to store bath towels and other bath amenities whiling giving it the modern stylish appearance that coordinates with the glass mosaic tile surrounding the shower.

As spring teases those in the Northern Hemisphere, minds run amok with home improvement projects. While simple projects like mounting new shelves or changing a dresser’s drawer pulls usually turn out well, there are also plenty of home makeover disasters. Among the tales of woe are attempts at wallpapering; because it requires accuracy, combined with buckets of messy adhesive, wallpapering is rarely a DIY project that goes smoothly, but this once outdated fixture of home décor is back in a big way.

The perfect decanter. A sized-just-right serving board (and charming cheese markers to match). There’s no end to the thoughtful host gifts you can buy for an entertaining-whiz friend to show your gratitude for all the good times they cook up. Even in a last-minute pinch, it’s worth bypassing the old flowers-and-fruitcake route for something a little more heartfelt. But if you have a couple of days and access to some natural fabric and dye, you can create an on-trend—and one-of-a-kind—indigo placemat set that will be the talk of the table at their next big event.

If social media shots of stunning beachfront ceremonies in places like Mexico, the Dominican Republic, Costa Rica and Panama have you thinking of throwing your wedding far from home, you’re not alone. But the stunning scenery is only one part of the wow-factor: All-inclusive resorts in these areas also have plenty of accommodations, activities and amenities to wow guests of all ages. If you’re inviting kids to the celebration, Now Resorts is a great option, offering plenty of family-friendly activities like big-screen movies shown beachside and live performances. Dreams Resorts, while allowing kids, also focuses on couples, with more of a romantic and relaxing atmosphere.
