DIY Wall-Mounted Glass Bookshelves

Wall-mounted bookshelves are a perfect way to display literary favorites while also cutting down on the extra space of bulky bookcases. While there are different wall-mounted bookshelf projects to try, wall-mounted glass shelves are the go-to option.

Here’s what you can expect with the custom-cut glass solutions from Glass Doctor:


  • Metal flanges, rods and tips
  • Primer spray
  • Oil rubbed color of preference spray paint
  • Stud Senor
  • Pencil
  • Drill
  • 2 1/2″ screws
  • Level
  • Adhesive rubber pads
  • Glass pieces cut to desired shelf size

Directions: Walking through the Glass Doctor Process

  1. Coat metal flanges, rods and tips with primer.
  2. Coat metal flanges, rods and tips with oil rubbed spray paint.
  3. Locate and mark studs in the desired installation area on the wall using a stud sensor.
  4. Mount a painted bracket by drilling a screw into each of the holes in the bracket.
  5. Using a level to ensure straight shelves, mark and mount another painted bracket horizontally across from your first.
  6. Repeat the mounting process until you have enough pairs of mounted brackets to create the number of shelves you want.
