The High Rise Shelves

What do you do when you check out Ana White's blog and find some amazing shelves that are cheap and easy to build.....
You beg your husband to let you spend your Christmas gift cards at Home Depot and get to work on them =)

I found this awesome shelf plan on her blog just a few days ago and headed straight to the store for supplies. We did alter the size just a bit and added a top shelf that extends all the way across our fireplace.

This project = LOVE

Here it is before we fully assembled it and painted.


Matt touching up with paint where we had to drill through the shelves  


The knick knacks on the shelves probably wont stay there,
we would like to find some colorful pottery the
next time when we are on a cruise.
and I am going to make some things for the very top shelf that extends across the fireplace.
Something tall that will fil up that space better.

View from the top of the stairs.

View as you enter through our front door.

  Matt and I have this and this on our list for our next big project......Baby W's nursery. And this has to be built before his/her arrival for some much needed places for toys and other baby things downstairs.

Check out our 1st project HERE, and our 2nd HERE.

I am posting to Thrifty Decor Chicks Before/After Party
