Well, I finally found a use for 2 of them. I know it's not all 5, but I'm workin' on that one!
In my last post I told you about moving my microwave stand to the other end of the kitchen. That left a bare spot underneath my faux window which got me thinking.
#1. I can't put any furniture there because the space is needed for the island.
#2. I want to put something there, but it can't be art, the faux window is the art here...
*Ding. A light bulb turns on somewhere. I know I want to display my pretty hand blown aqua glasses, but I don't really have a way to do that. Enter the shelves.
I grabbed a couple levels, a tape measure, some wall anchors, and a screwdriver. I elected to screw these in manually because Hayden was asleep in his rocker in the living room.
I deduced that 2 will fit wonderfully, if I have the edges begin 2" in from the door frames on either side. I also checked to make sure that each of my 6 glasses would fit.
Once I knew it would work I got to work measuring. This took me about 3 times as long as it would have taken Hubs to tackle, but I wanted to figure something out myself. It feels awesome!
Anyway, back to business. Here's what I got when everything was in place.
That is really pretty! The cool thing is that I can change out those glasses for something else anytime the
What do you think of my new solution? I'm thinking of creating a chalkboard area underneath the shelves once Hayden gets a little bigger.
