My Shelves Done up for Valentine’s Day

I love these shelves! My husband made them for me out of American Chestnut (Okay, maybe they aren’t American Chestnut. Turns out they are probably something that looks like it, but they are still beautiful and I still love them!) beams from our house. The holes you see there are nail holes that held the lath on. And the little bit of striping is from the spaces between the lath. No stain applied, if I remember correctly.

Valentine Shelves Decor

I love these shelves. They give me a place to add some seasonal fun to my kitchen. It’s just another opportunity for me to be creative. Which, for this month, includes a few ice cream dishes, some sprinkles and cookie cutters. The pink piece of wood with the xo on it was made by my 12 year old son several years ago. On the top shelf is one of my Conversation Hearts and a heart garland my 10 year old daughter made several years ago. That one is one of the things the kids are trying to sell here locally to pay their own way to camp. The jar of candy in the back is sort of just stored there. I’m thankful it’s color scheme works. 🙂

Do you have any little spots for seasonal decor??

Gathering here.
