For Christmas this year Santa (Dad and Mom) brought me a floating shelf. They bought it from Lowes. I had a hard decision from the shelves at lowes and the Ikea. I decided to go with this one because the shelf is more substantial. I let George hang the bracket on the wall. After a few curse words to get all 6 of the screws in the bracket was on the wall!
After some accessories, I think the wall is more of a focal wall now. I am excited to change the accessories with the season. The painting was a birthday present from Diana few years back. I was thinking I would like to add a vase or something on the other side instead of the plant. I may have trouble watering the plant because it is so high and I am so short. Now I have a reason to go to T.J. Maxx again :).
There will be more home projects to come since santa was nice to me. The problem is, you not only have to receive the present, but put in a little elbow grease to add things to your home.
