    My aunt and uncle dropped these off this weekend, they were center aisle display stands from a department store, but with a little ingenuity, a little time, and about $23 vested...

    I GOT THESE! (no not the Transformers, the shelves lol)

    They originaly had two metal posts that came out of the middle of both of them and the shelves attached to the posts on both sides front and back. I thought it was nice of them to give them to me, but I didn't really like them, because they really weren't display friendly as they were, but hell they had just given me fortune in tempered glass (I know because I've been looking into building my own cabinets), who was I to bitch?

    Then it hit me, go to the hardware store and get a couple of those strips that the brackets attach to and slide the base up to the wall. Not counting the time it took me to clean that corner of my office out (55 gal fish tank whoe buddy), they only took about 15 min to build, I'm still working on getting the shelves spaced out right, but this will most definitely work until I get around to getting some wood and making a cabinet to put them in... I love my aunt and uncle!

    (I still have two glass shelves left too)

    Here's some pics of me putting them together.
