if in doubt put up a shelf !!..
this should be my motto in life... the hubbys is " when all else fails.. hit it with a big hammer!! "
obviously hes talking about diy here.. hes not a hammer wielding maniac!
yes but my last resort for things is to just put another shelf up..theres always room for a shelf and that means theres always room for more pretty things to enter the house!!..
so i was faced with a little dilemma last week when i got my new cake stands.. as the triple tier one would really only fit were i had previously had a two tier one.. so i then had to find a home for the two tier one.. now i couldn't put it on top of my dining room dresser as you wouldn't be able to see it and i do like seeing my pretties out, but it cant be any were to handy for chubby hands to get hold of as that would be the last i saw of it !!..
so anyways i did a little bit of re-jigging things around on the dresser and its found a little home just sat in the middle of it.. so i moved some tins but then realised they didn't fit anywhere else on my dresser .. ( phew can you keep up with the crazy life that i lead!! )
what would be my solution... a shelf that my mum had given me a few weeks ago that had been in the boot of our car since.. i got it out.. got the hubby to get the power tools out and up it went.. which meant that i was left to faff about afterwards!!..
it is straight but as our house is the house that jack and his mate bill built the door frame isn't straight which means it looks a little on the wonky side but its not the hubbys dodgy diy skills but the door!!!..
so this is just yet another shelf that i can now have fun with adding to and hanging things off it the possibilities are endless and as soon as this one is filled up to capacity I'm sure I'll find another space on a wall somewhere for another one...do you think this could be a condition i have.. like shelfomania !!
i spotted some fairy lights the other week when i went into Liverpool that I'm going to save up and get as they are really cool and will look adorable on this shelf so I'll show you them as soon as i get them!!..
