I'm so glad you stopped by!
In my previous post I shared my fireplace makeover reveal, you can read about that here. Today I'm sharing three different ways on how I decorated the shelves. I gave the shelves a light and airy coastal farmhouse style.
I'm so excited to be a part of the Best of Farmhouse Friends blog hop, hosted by my friend Angie from Knick Of Time.
Here are the shelves before the makeover
HERE IS HOW TO MAKE SHELVES LIGHT AND AIRY
I used a collection of clear glass bottles as my starting point. I placed those on the top shelf to make it light and bright.
Give shelves balance by stacking books or magazines at both ends.Use colored glass bottles, fresh flowers and plants for pops of color.
Books, a driftwood sailboat and rope add texture and warmth to all the white.
Here I replaced everything on the first shelf with live plants. Line them up leaving gaps between each plant for a light and airy look.
Make shelves tidy by using baskets and curtains. They are great for hiding all sorts of things. The white shower curtain is hung with a tension rod. Tin cans and buckets add farmhouse style and are perfect for holding flowers and herbs. Add wood like the candle sticks and a picture frame to warm up the white paint.
