It’s Tuesday evening. The kiddies are in bed, hubby is working away on his laptop and I’m staring at the screen of mine. It’s only the humming sound of the furnace performing its daily duty of keeping our home warm that breaks the silence. This gives me pause for reflection of how fortunate we are to have a warm place to call home, yet sadly recognize how often I take that for granted.
Earlier this evening while washing dishes, I discovered we had no hot water and they can’t repair the hot water tank until tomorrow, meaning it’ll be cold showers for everyone in the morning. Isn’t it funny how we don’t realize how good we have it until something goes wrong?
Today I wanted to share these shelves hubby had built for us a couple of weeks ago. It was a last minute decision and one which admittedly I was a little worried wouldn’t get done in time. In time for what you may ask? Well, I was so blessed to have BHG visit our home last week to do a photo shoot for Christmas 2016. More details to come in a future post, but in the meantime, I’m happy to say we were able to get the shelves completed just in time and I love them so much.
We might still raise them all the way to the ceiling so we can place crown moulding all around, but for now, I’ve been having fun playing and ‘styling’ them.
I have never really had big shelves to style like this and am still learning. After studying these photos, there are several things I will be moving around.
I shopped our home and haven’t had to buy any new items, which I’m not sure is a good or a bad thing, as it could support hubby’s claim that I’m turning into a ‘hoarder’.
You may recognize the glass domes, which you can read more HERE.
I recently purchased a new wide angle lens and though still learning how to use it, this photo gives you a better idea of the size and set up of the room.
We also moved the large IKEA couch out of this room and replaced it with these smaller accent chairs from Leon’s. The sweet little pillow was my first design of 2016 and it’s currently available with FREE shipping (click HERE).
So there you go – our first project of 2016. I’m looking forward to playing with these shelves as the seasons change.
Thank you so much for stopping by today.
Wishing you a beautiful day.
