Home Decorator Showcase

One of the great products made and available at Building REsources is RED SHOVEL GLASS.  Red shovel glass polishes and smoothes recycled glass, mirror and wine bottles to create amazing, beautify landscape material.  Similar to the effect of the ocean waves over decades on glass debris, only much much faster with the use of specially crafted cement shakers that take the raw materials and wear them down in record time.

Now on display as part of the San Francisco Decorator Showcase, Red Shovel glass can be seen in use and in full effect.  The San Francisco Home Decorator Showcase goes on until May 26th.  It is located at 3660 Jackson Street and open to the public for viewing.  Go check it out while you can and consider what YOU could do with this wonderful material in your own front or backyard.
