This left me with a big blank area right over the buffet. During a recent trip to Ikea I saw some photo ledges displaying lots of picture frames. And I liked it! I snatched up a few of the ledges and picture frames and headed home. Here's all the goodies I bought:
Loren started hanging the ledges up the other night and I was pumped. I told him where to put them and how I imagined it to look. He hung up the first ledge and it looked like this...
Fail. That is not a winning photo ledge in any way. It was too high and to make matters worse when you looked into the room the light blocked everything! Grrr!!
So, we started over. I decided that instead of putting both ledges up maybe just one more in the middle of the space would be better. Luckily, these ledges are easy to install. I helped Loren with marking the wall so everything was straight but otherwise it's a one person job. There's just three screws that are used and then you cover them up with stickers so everything looks black and pretty. I forgot to take a close-up of the holes but their holes...you can figure out what they look like.
After Loren hung that ledge like a pro, we were in business. I busily filled the picture frames and hussled them into the dining room. Wahlaa!
I used a picture I purchased from Ikea and some printed photos from Costco. I love it. Love it, love it, love it! I need to do something with the other pictures that were already hanging on that wall but I have a plan for 'em. :)
So, what do you think? Like the ledge? Anyone else used one before? I really like them!
