OK, true talk: I have no idea where you’d ever use this Ikea hack in your Toronto apartment. But maybe your pad is cooler than mine and you’ve always wanted to install a custom glass-block wall, but just needed some inspiration. My friend, today is your day! Do we have an Ikea hack for you.
The parts. You’ll need
- Rektangel glass vase x like a million – $6.99 each
- Perfectly transparent, very strong glue
First, the bad news. You’ve got to design and measure your glass block wall, and you’re probably going to have to permanently glue vases to your floor. So map it out, plan how many vases you need to buy, and rent a U-Haul to bring your zillions of vases home, hopefully all in one piece.
The easy part is actually building it. You’re just going to lay each vase on its side, and glue them together as you go.
The original blogger who did this project (you should see it – amazing!) painted the vases white on the inside for added opacity and privacy before making the installation.
If you do this, please email us a picture!
