Shelf Re-styling.

This weekend, I gave my kitchen a good clean and decided it was time to restyle the floating shelves above the island. I like the arrangement that was there but it all needed to come off so that I could wipe down the shelves and what's the fun in putting everything back in the same place?

That's the only photo I could find that showed how the shelves were styled before. Simple but in true Jane fashion, I crammed a lot of stuff on those shelves, which made it heavy! I sometimes worried it would all come crashing down.

I started with blank slate. Those who follow me on Instagram would have seen this photo.

And arrived at this shortly after.

It ended up being a mix of blue and white. Completely unintentional but I'm not complaining. They do seem to be a common theme for me, without even realizing it.

I love my golden owls but I also can't wait to put them away and add a little bit of Christmas decor into the mix. As a rule, I don't generally put up any decorations until after Remembrance Day. Now that that day is gone, I'll still wait a little longer. I think I'll start seeing what I have after I submit my report cards next week!

Not only does it feel a little more simple, it's also more practical since we actually use the items on the first shelf rather than simply using it as display. Now what other shelves can I restyle?

blue glasses ~ Ikea

bowls, plate, jug and golden owls ~ Home Sense/Winners
