    Gosh! I loved it before, but I really do now. PLEASE do not make us wait to long to see how you style them. That is totally the fun part….for you and for us! I love the idea of mixing it up with white dishes and candles and books and art and oh, my! YES! All of it! Cannot wait!!!

    I love the pop of color and the depth this adds! Feeling shelf envy over here at my house.

  14. Jo says:

    My dining room was a very creamy color and I wanted an accent so I painted one wall black. It’s now my favorite room in the house. It’s amazing what black paint can do for a room. I love these shelves.

  15. Arell says:

    I loved this space before, but I REALLY love it now! I did not think it needed a thing, but I absolutely love the transformation! The room has that cool, kind of moody, deep look now. I think it came out perfectly.

  16. […] know… I know… I left you hanging last week with the new dining room changes I made. That beautiful paint color has kind of changed everything! I’m beyond in love with […]

    What stain color are the shelves?

  18. Aysegul says:

    WOW! We just found you on Pinterest and loving all your DIY tips and projects. Both my husband and I feel so inspired and want to do something similar for our library room. Quick question:
    Would these shelves hold books? Not just a few though.. Think of it like each shelve lined with books from left to right?
    Would you have any suggestions to make it sturdy so that it won’t fall?
    Thanks so much in advance.

      Oh my goodness! Thank you for such a lovely comment! I’m so happy you found me! 🙂 Yes, these shelves would hold books. I had heavy, heavy dishes on them, but they weren’t completely lining the shelves. I think it will depend how long of a wall the wood will be spanning. If you have a smaller spaces, the boards will be able to handle it without sagging. If however, you’re wanting to fill a big wall like I did, I would probably run a board along the back of the wall and anchor the shelf board to it. Visually, you could either paint the board the same color as your wall, or stain it to match the shelving boards. I hope that makes sense! 🙂
