Works for Me Wednesday, July 18

For more great ideas check out Works for Me Wednesday at Rocks in My Dryer.

My problem was 2 boys, 1 bedroom, and where to put their "stuff." My solution? Check out these shelves my hubby hung over their beds. Each boy has his own space for his personal "stuff." On the top shelf are the stuffed animals, and the clear plastic jugs (juice bottles) contain each boy's rock collection. The cubbies hold pictures and money "banks" (empty plastic peanut bottle & peanut butter jar) and cups with each boy's name on it. And last but not least, 3 hooks with 2 prongs on each for holding caps and other "stuff" that needs to hang.

It's hard to tell from the pictures but the shelves also give the feeling of having a headboard. An added decorating bonus! What's not to love?!

Don't worry the shelves are BOLTED into the wall with THREE huge bolts and the boys been threatened within an inch of their lives if they ever hang on the shelves. Even if they do, I don't think the shelves are going anywhere, but don't tell them that.

I LOVE those shelves! Where did you get them?

JC Penney. Online Outlet. Home Accents. Wall Decor. Lewis Wall Shelf. $39.99. It shows black or white but they were out of white when I ordered. Turns out I LOVE the black. You can always paint them. My boys are very proud of their shelves and like being able to hang their hats up themselves. I'd buy 2 for Ellies' room also but I've run out of money. Ha! Ha!

I'm planning to frame some family photos in black frames and hang on the big blank wall you see in the picture.

A great idea! I have three boys sharing a room and a place of thier own to hold all thier "treasures" is really necessary. And, I love the black.
