diy_ikea_waterwall.jpg

Marymade this homebrew water wall for her esthetics studio using a sheet of glass from IKEA, some plywood, and a sump pump. The pump pushes water from a reservoir to the top of the glass, where it spills over and flows back down, creating soothing sounds and hydrating the air. Commercial versions apparently cost thousands of dollars, while her version only set her back $200. Looks great!

    Maybe paste rows of those clear river rocks that are used in fish tanks, as to break up the flow a bit. Most of the time I see these water walls they have a VVVVVVV pattern rather than _______.

    Are there any instructions to this project? If so, will you provide to me.
