Heather from Sweet Number 9 immediately fell in love with a distressed wall ledge from Pottery Barn the moment she saw it. It was exactly what she needed to fill empty wall space that had been driving her crazy. Heather and her husband devised a plan to build their own shelf with some lumber and decorative molding. Their knock off is absolutely stunning and has become an immediate statement piece on the once annoyingly blank wall!

If you bemoan the fact that you don’t have a mantel and, therefore, a place displaying for cutesy holiday vignettes, you’ve got to check out these shelves from Mallory at Classy Clutter! Mallory built simple wall shelves by adding trim and corbels to a MDF board. These look great clustered together, so you can customize the number and size of your shelves to meet your space and decorative needs. Doesn’t Mallory’s suh-weet Valentine’s display make you want to build one right now!?!
