Kitchen Shelves

A while back we added a couple Ikea shelves to the kitchen (after I drooled forever over them in Emily's Kitchen) and I figured they weren't exactly blog material but you know what? Today they're going to be.


Well, more so the knock off Anthro letters that I made this weekend. I kind of have a crush on them, a big ol' one.

 
They were inspired by these beauties



Anyway, back to the fridge and all it's boring glory.


Our fridge floats by itself in our kitchen and it annoys the heck out of me so I thought some shelves would help anchor it a bit. The wall is too small for a built in enclosure and this seemed like the next best thing. A little illusion if you will, yes?


I threw the Pepsi crate up there for some vintage love, and I'm digging all the different textures together. Creamy white dishes (Because they wouldn't fit in the cupboard and we don't drink coffee at home) metallic letters, dusty old books and aqua ball jars.

I like mixing items that have a touch of masculine and feminine (metal & flowers) old and new. Go with it. 


My helper decided to get in on the action too, with some left over Halloween candy in her mouth. Who the heck told her she could get so big? Pretty sure I JUST had her.

I love it, I really do. But I have to point out that from certain vantage points it looks like it says FAT. I know, I'm terrible. I just had to say it!

Very Pretty! I love the letters!
It looks like you didn't get the memo that the top of the fridge is the place where discarded toys and dust belong. ;)
