yes i just made up a word, Shelvuary, meaning this post is mostly about shelves and it is February. don't hate, i'm running out of blog titles, already! No on to the shelves, I changed up my living room a bit, can you tell what i did...
The shelf above the door used to look like this,
But i started using the jars in other places around the house and after a while there were only four left and it started to look a little lonely up there so i added a few things i found around the house.
I also hung the mirror i found last weekend.
Joon it's still yours i'm just putting it to use until i pass it on to you :)
In other news my sweet husband made me some shelves for my closet in the craft room. And he did it for FREE!!
He looks mad there but he's not he's just trying to make a weird face...typical
anyway back to the shelves. I have been wanting shelves in the closet to store my craft stuff and since i bought the hutch i needed the extra storage because it holds a lot less stuff than my bookshelves did. So we went to home depot to get wood and when we priced it out it was going to cost us $70 for the wood. Are. You. Kidding. Me. Y'all know how cheap i am and that, that is just too much to spend on shelves. So my husband being the amazingly, smart,
cheap, frugal, and handy man that he is, went over to the empty lot by our house and picked up some free wood for us to use for the shelves. They were a little wet so we let them dry for a few days and... Wa La!
Perfect new shelves for FREE and the natural wood is gorgeous and matches our trim perfectly. So here she is all loaded up with my goodies!
It holds EVERYTHING! but i kept a few things out to store in the hutch. Which by the way is coming along nicely.
I know it doesn't LOOK like it's moving along, but i got the whole thing cleaned and sanded.
So all i have left to do is stain the piece and do the lace on the drawers and shelves.
I can't wait, and of course i'll keep you posted :)
