So I wanted a nice shelving unit to put on the wall above my desk, and luckily one weekend found this little beauty in a bric-a-brac shop - it fitted the bill perfectly... it just needed a coat of paint
Tilly is wondering what all the fuss is over and decides she wants to take centre stage!
So after a quick paint job and hubby flexing his DIY skills the new shelf is now up on the wall.....
A side view you can just see the nice edging!
..... and I've added some "pretty" bits to the shelves..... a gorgeous lidded jar for my buttons...
I got this jar plus the two smaller ones on the shelves from my local garden centre and they were a bargain! I've also done a bit of recycling with these little babies....
When I was a little girl I used to collect old perfume bottles and they would be lined up on my shelves in my bedroom it used to drive my mum mad when it came to cleaning! .... but old habits die hard I guess, cos I still love bottles and jars even if the original contents of said jars were honey and jam!!!
Whilst I was at the garden centre I also picked up this little birdie - just because I liked it and thought it would look pretty on my new shelf!
Right back to what is actually on my desk! Eagle eyed among you might have spotted these on the right of my desk - I have a series of blank letters you can see here the C, E, A, T, there are a couple I've not shown you can you work out what the word is.... anyway my plan is to decorate these and place them on toP of my new shelves.
To the left of my desk is my DT kit from Simply Create - gorgeous bright and fresh summery papers I so love the bottom one with the large flowers on it - haven't decided what I'm going to make as yet...
And lastly (phew!) I've got this little stash of ribbons and some silk material that I salvaged from an old tissue box cover I used to have they were lying on my desk as I haven't yet put them into my ribbon jars and I just had to take a photo cos they looked so damn gorgeous!!!!!!
Happy crafting (and snooping!)
