But back to the living room. I made a little progress a few weeks ago with the addition of a mirror above our TV console and with that I was headed in the right direction. If you don't remember, we have a pair of floating shelves that were supposed to be used in the kitchen until we nixed the idea and went with a plate rack instead. Enter said floating shelves and we now have a lovely addition to our living room walls that cost us nothing.
First off I took a couple strips of masking tape and marked the walls where I wanted the shelves to be:
Then I used some paper to mark the approximate height to fit a frame and make sure my tape was far enough apart. Woohoo. It was.
Then it was as easy as hanging the shelves and finding some things to put on them! A couple random items and frames I had at hand worked well enough but I foresee this corner going through more changes than a thirteen year old girl.
Yeah, we're getting there. One step at a time.
