While wandering around in the blogosphere a few months ago, I came across a post on a design blog about ledge shelves. I loved the way they looked, plus I figured it was way better than putting 50 nails in the wall to hang all those pictures individually. Not to mention, trying to hang them all straight!
Fast forward a few months and we're ready to tackle decorating the stairway. I remembered the pictures, and showed them to Dev. One trip to the hardware store and a few hours in the garage, and he made me these. He built them a few weekends ago, and I painted them this weekend. I haven't had a chance to spray paint all the frames, but I wanted to see what they'd look like, so I dug out our pictures and threw them up. Even haphazardly arranged, I think they look great.
