I just had to share these beautiful shelves James made me for Christmas. I had shown him some shelves I liked online, and since we couldn't afford them he decided to surprise me by making them out of my daddies old barn wood, which is very very special to me. He had a friend of ours help him make them b/c he is not a carpenter, but the fact that he thought of it and designed them, and then helped out with the labor, is so amazing and thoughtful. I couldn't of asked for a better gift.
The triangle one I decided to keep on my desk by the window, one of my favorite spots in the house for its beautiful lighting, and allow the contents on it to change all the time. The other one I used on my jewelry wall in the bedroom, an area I have really been wanting to makeover, so it was perfect. I love this shelf... so many secret messages within its shapes... it looks like mountains, and in the middle is a jewel. It also forms the name AVA, which is what we will name our daughter if we have one. They are just perfect.
I love that everytime I look at these shelves I get to see James and my daddy in them. He would of been so proud of him.
