Ikea Picture Shelves

I have a little collection of framed stitcheries that over the years I have stitched or my friends have stitched for me and was going to hang them in various positions in the studio. On our way home from 1 Direction last weekend Alison and I took a little detour to Ikea and I picked up a couple of picture shelves that I thought would be perfect for the space, only $14.99 each.....
I LOVE IKEA!!!!!
So last night I set about transforming
 this drab wall above my day bed.....
Into this lovely display area for my stitcheries......
They are perfect because they don't jut out too far.....
3 holes with my drill, a bit of tweeking with my spirit level
 and screw driver and they were up in no time....
Perfect and with space to add just a few more pretties....
I would have loved them to go all the way across but I am
going to put a small television in the corner eventually....
I will need some contact with the outside world when I become
 a recluse and lock myself in there Forever!!!! Ha Ha Ha
My perfect space waiting for my bestie Suze to
 arrive from Cobar later this afternoon....
Don't try to contact us tomorrow because we
will be stitching the day away....Yay!
Until next time, Happy Stitching
 
Kate

Looks fabulous Kate...good choice, they are great little shelves, I have two - above and below the wall design boards - the top one has decorative bits and bobs on it and the lower one is used as a shelf for the design wall, for pin cushions and what not...I love IKEA too :)
