I found these Pottery Barn Crown Molding Shelves under a pile of stuff. I almost passed right by. I knew I had to have them, not because I needed them, but because the price was so fab. They were marked $14.99 but everything was 50% off. A Steal! They retail for $75 each at PB.
I must confess, I bought them even though I had no idea what I where I was going to put them. With all the purging I've been doing, I promised myself I wouldn't buy anything unless I had a specific need....
You can see in the photo that they were a little beaten up - nothing a can of Rust-oleum Heirloom White couldn't fix.
Soon after I got home I found a place for them, so technically I didn't break my rule. ;-)
I have a vaulted ceiling in my bedroom and this wall needed something! I staggered them for visual interest as well as practicality. The practical part is leaving a space for the lamp. I'm still working on the shelfscape - ideas welcome!
I'm headed to Santa Barbara next week - definitely going to hit the thrift stores there again!
