"I love the look of high-end materials like marble and polished brass, but if you can't afford, say, an all-marble kitchen countertop, why not bring those materials into your space by using them on smaller pieces and home accessories? I have a table lamp with a marble base that adds a very posh touch to my home office." -Camille Styles, lifestyle blogger & Creative Director at CamilleStyles.com
Have a sheet of glass cut at the home improvement store into four pieces, each measuring 8” tall and slightly less than the length of each side of your planter. The finished box will need to rest on top of the lip of your planter. Alternatively, if the size works, you can use already cut glass from dollar store frames.
A coffee table with swiveling tops adds versatility and function in this modern living space built for entertaining. Glass tabletops visually open up the space and connect with the wall-length windows. A white leather sofa offers stylish seating.
A textured neutral paint adds subtle texture to create depth in the design of this small bathroom. Using a small vanity table leaves as much space available as possible in the room. A glass vessel sink blends beautifully with the glass tabletop while a built in shelf below provides storage space. A wood mirror and mounted sconce finish the vanity set up.
For this project, you'll need a metal or ceramic rectangle planter with lip; glass sheet (not tempered) cut into 4 pieces; metal mesh; lava rocks; marine silicone; gel fuel; tape measure; tin snips; rubber gloves; small metal pails (optional for deep planters).
A row of stools line one edge of the glass coffee table adding an Asian style influence to this contemporary living room. The glass tabletop and polished stone fireplace surround create a beautiful reflective quality throughout the room. Built in shelving adds a warm, wood hue to the cool color scheme.
