Styling my Floating Shelves…
Last week we were able to hang the floating shelves (and by we I mean my husband). They look so freakin’ amazing and I love them so much! This week I had so much fun styling them. I live for doing this sort of stuff. It totally makes me happy. Yes, I’m a nerd like that. Can you believe I already had most of this stuff around the house? I did purchase a few new things and I even added some of my boys clay artwork from school. Overall, I am really, really diggin’ how they turned out.
I wanted to keep with the coastal/nautical vibe so stuck too mostly whites, blues, neutrals and a few pops of green (and 2 pops of red).
Below is a before and after view…By the way….someone asked me if there was a window in the shower! It does appear that way. But, no there isn’t. There is a window next to the shower and what you see in the ‘before’ picture is a reflection of the window in the glass shower door.
I was hoping I’d get some of my artwork hung up in time for this post, but you’ll have to wait until next week to see that. I am still waiting on one piece of art to arrive that I ordered, and I may still need to purchase a few things. We will see. Anyway, things are moving along and shaping up nicely! It is all coming together nicely.
Shop these items…
Here is a partial list of the items on my shelves in case you see anything you like. I’ve had forever some of this stuff forever so I don’t have sources and links for everything.
Polka Dot Vase on Clearance for $10.48 – Pier 1
Frames – Michael’s
Similar Coral – Amazon
Plants were found at Thrift Stores and the fish was found at an estate sale.

I made the coastal centerpiece in a Thrift Store Challenge for only a few dollars.
The artwork you see on the shelves is old. I got those little prints on a trip to Boston a few summers ago and love them.
