Pretty Things

It’s yet another wet and windy Sunday, so I’m occupying myself with Pinterest and an Ikea catalogue to try and come up with some shelving solutions.

I really like pretty things and I want some shelves to show them off, but they also have to be functional and hold the weight of all our books. Oh, and, the shelves themselves have to look good too. So…no pressure!

I love floating shelves and we have some already. They’re great for flowers, pictures and little things, but I’m not sure how strong they are.

These are two ideas that I found on Pinterest, which I’m toying with.

Both of these would work for me. I like the design of the first and the practicality of the second.

Busy day ahead for me! Enjoy your Sunday 🙂

    An Ikea catalogue, now that’s a good way to spend a wet Sunday, keeping one eye on the many sporting fixtures on TV!

      So much sport today-it’s distracting me from the IKEA catalogue!

    I love the box-type floating shelves but I agree with your concern about how robust they’d be. Hope you find what you’re looking for.
