I was gifted a beautiful milk glass collection last summer! But in our house, fragile doesn’t really fit in well, so I decided to get them up in a safe place while displaying them all together. I found a beautiful wall mounted shelf that would be perfect for a whopping $1000… ummm that wasn’t going to happen so you guessed it… Ikea hack to the rescue!
These shelves are a fairly new product there and you can buy them in a multitude of sizes and really personalize them to what you want.
I wanted them to be a clean white so I simply spray painted them before assembly. And by assembly, I mean, beat me over the head, have a meltdown, want to throw them out the window, 2 day ordeal. I say this because I actually take pride in my Ikea assembling abilities. I know all the little tricks and can read there poor directions like a boss now… but these were a mean surprise because it looked like they would be so so simple! They were not. I managed to get it done but didn’t end up following any of the directions so I’m afraid I can’t help talk you through it… but I will pray for you! I think it turned out pretty well though and does the job for now.
This is in a corner of our dining room that I will share more of soon!
I’m not bitter at all that the movers removed 2 of the 4 wheels on my antique tea cart and are still no where to be found… not bitter at all.
I love that I can enjoy my new collection and that it’s not hidden away anymore! The house is slowly coming along and this is motivating me to finish up the dining room fast 🙂
