Morning all - it seems ages since I posted, a week to be precise! Another half term looms, then it'll be count down next term to the summer holidays. It does seem like an extremely quick academic year don't you think?
Anyway, back to the title of my post. For quite a while hubby had been complaining about how the shelf space throughout the whole house (slight exaggeration) was crammed full of needless stuff and how he didn't have enough space to put his books etc - yes I know, get the violins out!
As there was space in the bedroom for a shelf we decided to hunt down something that would fit the bill. Unfortunately nothing did, but I had spotted in a magazine that someone had displayed their wares in an old crate which was hung on the wall.
As we had one lying in the shed, I thought it would be ideal. It was slightly too deep and a little overbearing due to the dark coloured wood on a pale wall. Some slight modification and a lick of bubble gum pink paint (very girly I know), a new shelf was born!
I have temporarily taken over some of the space (I promise!) as you can see.
All in all a solution which didn't cost a penny!
Have a good day!
