i've been trying to figure out what to put on the wall behind the couch since we finished the living room. the christmas decorations were nice, but they were meant to be a temporary thing. if temporary is sixth months, then sure, they were temporary.
we made these shelves this week. i've been wanting to for a while now and we finally made it happen. and i thing they look pretty awesome.
they were easy too make too, with the help of geometry and a compound miter saw. what can't you do with those two powers combined.
since we already had the stain and the paint, they were also cheap. eight seven cents of wood per shelf. and i got to use power tools. and i still have all my fingers.
we even hung them to have proper tessellated space between them. this involved paper templates and a lot of trial and error to get a layout that worked aesthetically.
i'm pretty happy with them. i'm still not sold on the yellow, but i probably won't change it. i think i'll just book it as a win that there is something on the wall that isn't made of paper.
