Simple DIY Makes Ordinary Wood Shelves Glow in the Dark

Meet Matt Brown, a skillful jeweler who came up with a brilliant idea while he was trying to fix the chestnut shelves. The big piece of chestnut that he owned had cracked and pitted, so he decided to do some fixing with resin inlay, however, he decided to throw in some twist to the whole ordeal.

He mixed some glow in the dark powder with the resin and waited for 3 days after pouring it in. The result is spectacular with a shelves that have just a pinch of color. The shelves look like regular shelves by day, however, let the night fall and the resin starts glowing and imparts quite a magnificent look to the shelves. The complete DIY instructions can be found on Matt Brown’s blog.
