So the Ravenna comes with an "office". For now, it's the only room with unpacked boxes. Mostly pictures. I found a nice idea on AnnaWhite.com for picture shelves. Very simple yet very cool. I like the idea that we can add, rearrange, remove, etc... without re-designing the "picture wall". So I set out to build a set of 48" shelves. We (I) painted them a Sherwin Williams "Batik Blue" which is very nice next to the "whole wheat" Ryan painted the house. Three screws each into some studs on the foyer wall, add photos, and enjoy.
These are called "$10 Shelf" because that's how much the wood cost. I used a nicer "select" pine for the back and front lip and a lower grade for the bottom. Still came to $10 each.
