Home update...shelving.

Finally got my shelves from Target, however I do not recommend them. My guy had to put liquid nails on the hangers because they wouldn't stay in the wood. Basically, the wood was too weak to hold them in. So, I'll be looking at IKEA shelves next time I'm in AZ. Enjoy your Fri, Sat. & Sun. everyone! I'll be pretty busy this weekend, but you can catch me on my Twitter - tweeting away whatever is on my mind at the moment.


*By the way, this shot was taken with my new Canon Rebel xs - loving it so far!

  1. Man I love Target. Guess they aren't always good for everything. I've been needing some new shelves too. Can't find the right ones to match our other furniture pieces though.

  6. ugh sorry that didn't work out for you. target can certainly be tricky. i've tried west elm shelves that are more expensive, but they held up really well. have a great weekend!

  8. Bummer about the shelves. I agree that Ikea's floating shelves are pretty awesome. Very sturdy (and heavy!) so make sure your walls will be able to withstand them.

  13. I have the IKEA ones and they are amazing. So simple to install (I did it myself and I am not handy at all) and you can't beat the price.

    I am a Nikon girl, but I am glad you are enjoying your new camera. I just got a new Nikon myself...so much fun!

  25. We don't have these shelves at our Ikea anymore. I really want them!

    Your LOVE poster was featured in our (by 'our' I mean Australia's) Sunday magazine this past Sunday. Not sure if you knew?

    Hubby kindly tossed ours out, but I can get my hand on another if you need it. x

  28. I just saw the prettiest shelving solution over at Desire To Inspire that's a bit shabby chic/rustic... not sure if that's your style at all but maybe you'd like it??
