Day 28: Bringing in Some Personal Touches

Day 28 of 31 Days to Transform the Heart of Your Home. Getting so close to the end and when I can finally reveal everything all put together. 

Today, since we are getting so close to finishing, is all about accessorizing. You know those little touches that help make a house a home.

I had these picture ledges from Ikea in our family room before the makeover. I wanted to use them again, just slightly in a different place.

Just a quick tip with these shelves: After screwing them in (Most Ikea stuff does not come with its own hardware), use little white stickers to sort of cover the heads of the screws. 

It makes quite a difference.

I decided I wanted them closer to our kitchen table because I love to display our growing photo book collection. The girls love to stroll down memory lane and this is the perfect place to do just that.

Now I have a sweet little collection of memories that we can admire daily. 

Love that.

  1. I love this! I would have never thought of the white sticker thing either. I never know what to do with those photo books, I hate putting them on a normal book shelf. This is just too cute of an idea.

    1. Thanks Felicia! I love displaying our photo books this way. It allows people to really see them and look through them rather than just setting them on a shelf to collect dust.

  2. I love these book ledges. I have some in my daughters room for her books!

    1. I love them too! They work for so many different kinds of things don't they?
