Floor up for grabs {and a new shelf to prove it}

So plan for the office number 2? Freeing up some floor space. Now we can say goodbye to our {faithful old} floor shelf. The new shelf was easy to install. The hard part was cutting my 1 corbel in half! I found extra wide corbels at Home Depot, but since I wanted them to sit flush against the wall I had to cut one corbel down the middle somehow.... Amazing, resourceful, and wood-loving friend at work? Perfect. My buddy used a band saw to slice the corbel right in half. 
My very loving husband caulked the shelf before I painted it... remind me to either give him one-on-one lessons next time... or just go ahead and do it myself! Just kidding {kinda!}. There were tons a few places I had to touch up, but over all he did a fine job.

I'm hoping to get a little bit cuter in my storage of the new shelf... but for now it will do, and we can sell our old shelf. It is nice to free up some floor space. I wonder sometimes if I'm a little furniture happy, and might do well to learn to cut back. 

I'm also feeling a change in the closet doors...

  1. What a great idea to use an unused space! I may have to try this in my daughters room, she's filling up the room quickly :)
