This week's themed link up at Funky Junk's Saturday Night Special is all about shelving.
Shelving? I've got shelving. I've got some traditional bookshelves in a couple of rooms,
but they are b.o.r.i.n.g.
Just about anything I can stack on top of each other or put things on or hang is shelving around here.
Nontraditional shelving? Oh yeah. That's what I like.
Here's a sampling of what I call shelving.
A collection of red stools stacked up become instant shelving.
That little one on top was the one my sister and I used as children.
I'll probably be on the hunt to add a few more little red stools.
Oh yeah, and then there's my little rusty ladder.
Instant shelving here.
One of my biggest shelving units is this old pie rack in the dining room.
It holds tons of stuff.
I love this color of old pine.
This old bread tin hung up vertically becomes great shelving.
This hung in my mom's house in the 80's. Yep, she was decorating like this
back in the 1980's, before blogs. Some thought she was clever; others thought she was crazy.
This too hung in my mom's house...in the bathroom.
It held cotton balls and cotton swabs.
Old drawer hung on the wall holds a collection of tiny perfume bottles.
These would get lost on a big shelf.
These old cubby shelves hung in an outbuilding at my husband's grandparents',
and later his parents' house.
A little paint, a few numbers...
and now there a form of shelving.
They hold some old kitchen utensils in the dining room.
A cute little chair becomes a cute little shelf.
I wish I could take credit for this shelf but I bought it years ago at an antique mall.
Someone took either an old sign or a large old crate and turned into the cutest shelf.
Many of you have seen before my old wooden shelving in my project room.
It's perfect for holding office supplies.
Now take a look at a future shelf I hope to spiff up.
This blue monster is huge and metal and industrial and vintage and free.
A teacher I work with gave it away. I took it and it's sitting in my room at work.
I have to figure out a way to get it home.
Can you just picture it painted a fresh coat of creamy white?
It would make awesome shelving...if I ever get it home.
Don't forget my giveaway.
It ends tomorrow night.
