Another YHL idea that I LOVE and have officially stolen are these cute ledge shelves. It’s a great way to add some fun wall decor (that is always changeable), add a little storage (attractively) and the ledge also makes it safer for baby than traditional floating shelves. I showed my awesome handy-dad that YHL post and in one afternoon he had whipped up 3 box shelves to my requested dimensions.
First, Sol and I primered and painted the naked shelves. We used the same eggshell paint that we used to paint the chair rail.
Then it was time to hang. After we decided how we wanted to arrange them, my handy husband used some excellent measuring and re-measuring skills and super strong wall anchors to securely fasten them to the wall.
And ta-da! We have shelves!
