As I’ve mentioned, Chris and I recently moved apartments. It’s a bigger space (yay!) and I have my own closet (double yay!).
This past weekend, one of my projects was to make a shelf out of my Anthropologie wall brackets. In our old apartment, I had a couple books as the “shelf” between the brackets (you can see that here). That was cute for our old tiny apartment, but we have a lot more wall space now, so I wanted to turn the brackets into a longer shelf!
So, on Saturday, Chris and I went to Lowe’s and picked up some supplies for our new space, including a 5-foot board to serve as the shelf! It was cheap — maybe $5.
When we got home, Chris hung up the brackets (the hard part), and I decorated it with my trinkets (the fun/easy part). It has one of our wedding photos, two houseplants in antique planters, my Andy Warhol Sam print, and a needlepoint my aunt made us for a wedding gift.
I am so pleased with the results!
