Adding Shelves

Hello my sweet friends! How are ya?
Did you have a wonderful weekend?  School starts for us tomorrow and I am not looking forward to getting back into a routine. Seems so strange with only one in school this year. My older son starts college on how time flies. 

I have been wanting to add some shelving in my dining room for awhile now but just haven't had the time to tear down all my accessories and move furniture..until this weekend.
I stayed in my pj's all day and played.. 

I previously had the large cubbies that I found at an estate sale on this wall

I like the cubbies but was wanting a change. 

After moving some furniture around and playing with accessories this is what I came up with.
( Lots of pics ahead)

I used things I already had on hand. A friend gave me the old shelves, I bought one set of brackets for $6 and found another set at Goodwill for $3 ea. A total of $12 bucks for all. They sell them at Home Depot for $10 each so I think I got a bargain!!

French Flower Market window was found in Canton Tx. 

Are you loving open shelving? Do you have any in your kitchen/dining room?
Love the way they look!

Have a wonderful (Back to School) Monday!
