So I've really been wanting to do some home projects to make our apartment a little more personal. Plus we needed some color so I decided to make some shelves (with Nick's help obviously) and some picture frames.
So I found brackets for the shelves and then we went to Lowe's and bought wood, paint, and screws and went home and made our shelves. I have some different colored brackets but they aren't here yet, so we've only made one shelf. It looks a little lonely on the wall, but hopefully in a couple weeks it will look nice with both of them up there.
I also made some picture frames this weekend to match our living room/family room/dining room/den. Its all one room, but Nick and I have divided it all into four parts to make our apartment "feel" bigger... so far it seems to be working.
