Note: the accessories were plopped up on the shelves, this is not the final look. =)
Tall ceilings = spaced out shelves
What was my reasoning for putting them far apart. I wish I could say I had some smart plan to put something in the middle, but I don't. I actually put them up in a hurry before leaving for my CPR class (Which I highly suggest everyone take. I know Maggie did! Yay!) last night and was lucky enough that they are actually level and evenly centered in the wall. I used our stud finder and I think that's where I thought they were. How do you like those stripes?! woo.
This is where I want your thoughts. Should I get another shelf to put in between those two? Or should I just leave it? I'm not sure if I want to add two more and put one below the lower one shown, too. I'm guessing the lower shelf is now at about a 4 and a half feet from the floor. At $20 each, I think I can afford to get 2 more. The shelf project will come to be about $10 per shelf. Not bad.
I was somewhat inspired by this image from House Beautiful.
Those are IKEA shelves too.
What do you think?
