Its Monday, Bleh... my least fave day of the week. At least we had a fun weekend! On Saturday we went to the Braves game with family and friends. SO MUCH FUN (even though they lost)!
Last week while checking out one of my favorite blogs, Design*Sponge (side note: you need to check out their DIY and Before/After sections), I found this gorgeous photo. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these shelves!!
I immediately forwarded it to the hubs. What a super easy project for CHEAP!?!
Best part? The hubs was working on a demo project that required them to tear down an old barn. He was able to bring home some of the lumber that would have been tossed. SCORE!
I have been trying to think about what to do with this weird wall in our bedroom - and now I had the perfect solution - build some shelves!!
So here we go:
We went to Home Depot and spent about $20.00 on a track system - like the ones you use in closets. When we got home, we measured and determined where we wanted the shelves to go.
The hubs then cut the lumber to size and hung them. We did a smaller one below to work as a side table beside our little green chair.
VOILA! A new reading nook in the bedroom! Now that weird wall has a purpose!!
Here are some close-ups of shelves. So much character in reclaimed lumber!
***Note - I need to find something else to go up on the top shelf - maybe a big green vase?? Suggestions, anyone??? The glass candle holders are not staying there.
I want to do a similar shelving unit in my "one day home office." Ughh... my "to do list" is so long. I don't think we will ever be finished.
As always, if you have something you want to share or you have questions/comments/suggestions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Enjoy your Monday! Talk soon, friends!
