We have this area between our kitchen and near the kitchen bay window. It's a little desk nook. After living here for almost 6 years I figured out what I wanted to do with this area. With the help from my wonderful and talented husband we took a trip to the home improvement store. We picked out some wood for the shelve and trim for the front of the shelf so it would match my mantel. Then I picked out the corbels. That was the most expensive pieces in this project. I thought I waited this long. Might as well get what I want...LOL.
Then I walked around the house to find the right nicknacks to put on my shelf. Everything on the shelf is what I already had except the candles.
