You'll Need

  • 2 Lucite Squares, available at hardware stores
  • 4 L-Brackets, available at hardware stores
  • Industrial glue
  • Cork Furniture Stoppers, look in the furniture section of the hardware store
  • Acrylic (plastic) picture frame
  • Knobs or Drawer Pulls

Join Miss Kris as she shows you how to use lucite in two awesome DIY decor projects!

Bookends

You'll need: L-Brackets, cork advesive stoppers, Lucite squares , and industrial glue. All this stuff is available at any hardware store.

Step 1: Line up your L-brackets with the bottom of your lucite square, a few inches apart from each other.

Step 2: Attach the L-bracket to the lucite using the industrial glue.

Step 3: Once the glue has dried, stick your cork stoppers on the bottom of the L-bracket. This helps the bookends stay in place and also protects your shelves from getting scratched.

Acrylic Serving Tray

You'll need: Acrylic (plastic) picture frame, industrial glue, and knobs. Drawer pulls work really well for this if you can remove the screws.

Step 1: Remove the paper or picture from your acrylic frame.

Step 2: Attach the knobs to the frame using a dab of industrial glue. Careful not to over-do it on the glue or it can get to be a gooey mess. Another tip for this step; prop up or hold the knobs where you want them as the glue dries or they can slide south for the winter.
