Shelf Brackets Have Made Me Happy

There was this pin on Pinterest that showed this set of shelves using brackets from Hobby Lobby.  Check it out here. The set of three shelves on the wall was pretty, but the brackets were what I really wanted.  And I'm not sure why, but when someone posts something and says "check out this awesome thing they have at Target/Hobby Lobby/Michael's", they never have it at my store.

This is the largest problem in my life.  I have it pretty good.

But this time, I found the brackets I liked! And they were 50% off, so I got two brackets for $8.  BOOM. (That's the sound I make when I get happy about a purchase)

I had the hubs put them up...

He's all man and all mine.

I got a piece of pine from Lowe's that was already cut to the size I need.  THIS WAS DESTINY.

I painted it and put it up... and I think the hubster was happy because there was another surface for me to put stuff.  He called it 'brick-a-brack'.

Who knew some $8 shelf brackets would make me so happy?

I link up at these great parties!


  1. Looks great. I love the shelf brackets and the shelf and all the stuff on it. Now, how often will you get up there to dust :)

  2. I love this idea! I will have to try this one!

  3. Looks great! I have something similar pinned (somewhere????) putting the shelf and brackets above a door. Now I'm just eyeing up all my doorways to see which one it would look best on.

  4. Oh, honey. I need your "man" to make me happy. Just kidding. Well, sort of. I had a beautiful set of brackets purchased at Goodwill, of course. I could never get hubby to hang them so I gave them back to Goodwill. Sigh.
    Yours look great. I would love another space for "brick or brack". hehehe Funny that your "man" talks like that.

  5. Very cute. Might have to do this in the kids' rooms. They have a lot of brick-a-brack, too!


I love all the comments I get from you! Because of an insane amount of spam, I had to turn off anonymous commenting but I'd love it if you'd comment anyway!
