Picture Ledges

 It's late and dark, but I had to join in with the Shanty Sister's "Made it Without My Hubby" party.

I made two more PB knock off photo ledges.

 Whew it is dark! Maybe tomorrow I will have time to swap out these dimly lit pictures for something better.

Again the directions came from Ana White's amazing site of DIY woodworking plans. We have very little wall space for displaying art or photos in the new place. Too many closets and windows. What a happy problem! These simple ledges will make it easy and fun to enjoy all our little photos and tchotchkes. They fit this hallway space perfectly and just stick out a teeny bit past the doorway molding.

Right now they are decorated for Christmas. But, since we haven't figured out where we are going to store our pictures when not in rotation, I decided to play around and stage some other seasonal displays. Maybe a few good luck symbols  the New Year. Still love my framed engagement day calendar page.

Perhaps I will do something like this for our anniversary in July. Some wedding pictures, our invitation, and our cake topper salt and pepper shakers.

I still have a couple more ledges to make since Cliff has ordered up a set for his office.

Off to Shanty 2 Chic to check out the other projects!

Have a great Wednesday!

These look great! I never know what to put on my walls, these would be a good solution for me! They look very "Pottery Barn-ish" lol
