I just have a hard time putting away family pictures. I take new ones, but some of the golden oldies just pull at my heart. So, what do you do when you have bags of family pictures?
I searched and found the perfect shelves at IKEA. At $14.99 I could not have made them and if I had they would not have looked so perfect.
So my afternoon project today turned out like this.
I started with a big blank wall.
You will only need screws, cross head screw driver, measuring tape, leveler and a ladder.
Bummer, IKEA. They didn't inlcude the screws with the shelves. But, luckily hubby had the perfect sized ones that I needed. The instructions said not to use frames taller than 40 cm. America IKEA! I was so glad this frame I had bought had both cm and inches. This was the largest frame I was using so I was good to go.
I had to center the shelves on the wall and could not use stud placement. They had three screws on each shelf and fit pretty snug. I'll let you know in the morning if everything is still in one piece.
Now you see the screws, now you don't. They did come with little stickers to hide the screw heads.
Done! And it is exactly what I needed and wanted. I used black and gold frames.
My Pinterest inspiration is below.
