Shelf Obsession...

As the title suggests, I have been slightly obsessed with these treasures! I have been collecting these shelves left and right, and have finally had the time to put some up. I know that they look extremely DRAB at first sight (for some), but it was complete and utter ♥ for me.

Here is what one looked like before... and After
( *I didn't spend over a $1.00 for any of them, and they are each made out of different materials.)

I used Spray paint and toll paint to create the colors I wanted,

and sanded down the wooden ones after painting them.

Here is where I hung them....
I can see them right as I enter my home, and they make me smile everytime I walk through my front door.

 I ♥ to decorate them with all sorts of odds and ends that I have collected. My artichoke candle stick was found at the DI for only .50 cents, and the old books were just .75 cents a piece.

Hope you are inspired and love this project as much as I do.

  1. I love the colours you have chosen. What a great update and a fabulous display.

  2. I see shelves like these all the time at the DI, but I never know what I would do with them.

    Looks Great!

  3. Oh my, I love that wood one. I want it. They look great, I would have passed them up though. Now I know what they CAN look like.

  4. Hanna, you never cease to amaze me. They are adorable! I seriously need to go shopping with you and your sisters.

  5. Now I know why I never find good stuff like that, it is already on your wall!

  6. Those are awesome! I love the different finishes -- very eclectic and fun, but classy at the same time!

  7. They all turned out super cute! Great project.

  8. Hannah, i love your obsession! looks great all together, absolutely. kisses

  9. These shelves are great, especially after your refurbishment. I came across your post this afternoon while browsing interior design blogs and your take on interior décor is exquisite. Are there window coverings that would go well with a design on the walls such as this? It is true that you must dress your windows appropriately to bring out their true beauty. Thank you for writing and as a special thanks to you and your readers, I would like to offer a 20% off coupon using this code upon checkout: BLG20.

  10. I love this! where do you find all of your cute shelves? I love your color combo. So great!
