Curvy Shelves

Good morning. The other day Nancy from Southern Lady asked to see more of this shelf in the hall upstairs just outside the laundry room so I thought it might be fun to feature some of our shelves here at Greenbrier. This flimsy little shelf is a good size to tuck into narrow spaces. Size is one thing that draws me to one shelf over another. To keep things from being too heavy to hang with a couple of common nails the ones with fret work on the sides usually work best. Some people are drawn to straight lines but curvy pieces work for us.
This shelf was the perfect size to tuck into a corner. The design on it is so detailed that I didn't think it needed much on it. This shelf is missing some pieces and the finish is much less that perfect but lovely none the less. I have no idea what that thing is on the top shelf. I really should wear my glasses when taking these pictures.........
This simple shelf in the family room is a good shelf for a few little books that would be lost in bigger book shelves. It is in a bit better condition than the ones upstairs.
In the dining room this shelf holds seasonal displays and has groves on the back of the shelves for propping plates up on. This shelf is of a better quality so it works well in this more formal room.

Thanks Nancy for asking about the shelf. I hope you all enjoyed your visit here this morning and the tour of a few shelves.

Hugs,
Sue

  4. Sue,

    I have the settings on "show" for the comments, but I can't figure out why they aren't showing up. That is something Dana was helping me with, but I can't seem to fix it. If you have any advice, let me know. Great connecting with your family again!

    Love, Kelly

  5. Hi Sue! I figured out how to fix the comments issue...I had to change the html code because the template I was using wouldn't allow comments. It worked! Feel free to leave a comment..you will be the first!

  6. Hi Sue,
    I found your blog through another...it caught my eye because my hubby and I ride a Harley and we actually visited Bay Harbor last year when we went to the UP. Please stop by sometime.

  7. Hi Sue,
    I like all the shelves shown...each with a different personality and tastefully decorated...

    I believe in using my linens...some vintage and some that will be one day hopefully...I just enjoy home and all that it represents....decorating, re-arranging....

    You are so brave! A motorcycle Mama.....Blessings, Betty

  9. Oh SWOON!!!! I love your shelves. That deer shelf is amazing. Is it from Europe? It kind of looks like something from the Black Forest. Love it :) I mentioned your beautiful home on my blog post. I hope you don't think I am a crazed stalker. I am your biggest fan :) I love your style!
