We decided on these shelves and you simply cannot beat the price. $29 for a 6 foot shelf? Here is a picture before: BORING!
Here they are from another angle. Even Emmett is unimpressed.
So, Onto the new shelves! I needed accessories for my new clean space. I just "shopped my house." I actually think this is really fun, as opposed to go and buying all new accessories. I am totally on a glass bottle kick right now. I love the look of it and I think it's so pretty and eclectic. I have gotten these jars and bottles from all sorts of places.....thrift stores, flea markets, and antique stores.....all of course for just a couple dollars. The two little ones I did buy at West Elm. (I couldn't find small ones anywhere) Right now, West Elm is selling tons of glass bottles which is sort of ridiculous because you can find them for much cheaper. Also, I took wine bottles and sparkling cider bottles out of the recycling bin. I soaked them and then peeled the labels off. You can't get any cheaper than that, right? Here are the glass bottles in my bedroom, but I decided I needed them for my new shelves more.
The one thing I did buy new for shelves was this laquer owl I spotted at HomeGoods. It was just too cute.
I wanted the shelves to be filled with white, aqua, and lime green since those are my favorite colors. I got this Large mason jar at an antique store and then I went to Michales and bought a bag of sea glass. Oh, how I love sea glass! It is so beautiful. I filled up the jar and I was quite happy with the look.
