Floating Around

Sorry, I couldn’t resist that lame post title.  That’s what happens when you blog after an 11 hour work day!  In the midst of updating the half bath (no, we’re not done yet.  Painting the vanity is turning out the be much more difficult than I hoped it would be) I decided to hang the floating shelves we got at Ikea. (We got the 43″ ones in high-gloss white.)

We got really lucky with the stud placement & I could get each side of the bracket into the stud, so we’re pretty sure these are stuck to the wall until we decide otherwise.  I loaded them up with all of our stemware that doesn’t fit in the wine bar below – which is most of the tall stemmed glasses.  Hopefully now that they’re out in the open we’ll be more likely to use the nice glasses.

I love the combination of wood and stainless steel.  I some more of our African decorative items to the shelves to pick up some of the other colors in the room. Overall, I’m really happy with how these turned out! Exactly as I had pictures ever since we re-did the wine buffet back in our old apartment!
