DIY Picture Ledge

Several weeks ago, Mr. Fancee and I decided to make two picture shelves to hang above our couch.  My vision is to collect lots of neat frames and artwork/pictures for a gallery wall.  These photos were the inspiration for the project:

Well, it was a learning process, but we finally completed the shelves and hung them above the couch.  I only have a few pictures so far.  Finding more will be my next project 🙂

These are all of the pictures so far… all Goodwill and Salvation Army frames.  I got a few of our wedding pics printed and framed them.


Yesterday I found this sweet floating picture frame at Salvation Army for fifty cents… How neat is that? 🙂

Hopefully the shelves will look less barren soon… I will post pictures once it’s full!  Happy Wednesday 🙂
