#SHELFIES ARE THE NEW SELFIES!

 

And I can't wait to share some fun shelfie ideas with you here today.  Built-ins can be very daunting to decorate, at least for me they are!  However, now I luv it and change them up regularly.  I'll share a few tips with you here today that I hope will inspire you to get started!

 

 

TIP #1  MAKE YOUR SHELFIES PERSONAL!

Start with some of your favorite things.  I luv all things vintage, therefore I rounded up a few of my favorite things.  ie. the wooden mailbox, grub pot, globe, Lenox clock, etc..

 

 

 TIP #2  ADD CANDLES!

All kinds!  Here I added some plain white taper candles and wrapped them with a little burlap.

 

 

I luv these blue glass candlesticks that I found at The Shops at Cape Neddick in Maine w/ small white pillars.

 

 

TIP #3  BOOKS!  VINTAGE & CURRENT

 

 

Here I added some of my favorite vintage treasures with some old books and some current books on the lower shelf.  

I also luv the old clock faces.  Here I decoupaged the clock face onto an old book.

 

 

TIP #4  FLIP BOOKS THE OPPOSITE WAY!

This will add character, and will also lighten the shelves and the room.

 

 

TIP #5  CREATE THE VINTAGE BOOK LOOK! 

Remove the cover, back, and spine from old paperbacks and wrap them in twine.

 

 

TIP #6  BASKETS!

I'm partial to neutral colored baskets.  They are great fillers adding texture AND softness to any shelf.  All sizes go...

 

 

 

 

Now if I can just convince my husband to hide the speakers...  Ha Ha!  #reallife

 

 

TIP #7  FLOWERS AND/OR PLANTS!

I'm a big fan of having living things in each room.  It adds to a "lived in", relaxed feel, which I really enjoy.  It can be as large as a bouquet of Lilacs from your yard,

 

 

OR

a small amount of dried babies breath!

 

 

A simple plant...

 

TIP #8  PHOTOS! 

Add your personal photos and favorite pictures, paintings, etc..  Hanging the items on your shelving walls adds depth and personalization.

 

 

TIP #9  KEEP IT SIMPLE! 

Or your shelfie will look cluttered.  

 

 

 

 

TIP #10  HAVE FUN WITH IT!

 

 

 Pin It!

 

If you like this post, I would luv for you to share it on Pinterest! I've created the above custom pin just for this post! You may also find more #shelfie inspiration on my Shelfie Pinterest BoardSharing is Caring!
