Default Floating cubes.

Hi, guys.

My daughter wanted to buy a set of floating shelves from Amazon for an excessive price without handling and shipping. I told to her to wait until next week end to get them for free. I went to my garage, took some plywood pieces and made this set of floating cubes. Sabrina is happy.
