DIY: wall-shelf retrofit
Our condo has a spacious window seat at the midlanding on the way to the third floor. I wanted an open wall shelf overhead of the window seat, so that it can serve as a reading nook. I found an industrial style three-tiered shelf at Kirkland's online store that I liked for the price. I hung it high enough so that someone can easily slide into the window seat without knocking their head on the shelf. But once I hung it, I realized that only the underside of the shelves were in view. And this underside is black and sort of boring to look at. So then I decided to do some doodle on the back of these shelves as you can see in the image....
The seat is large enough to be able to comfortably chill while having your belongings along with a cup of tea around.
Sharpie Paint Marker.
I chose the color white because it would be a good contrast against the brown black. First, I outlined the rectangular edge with the marker.
Here are the two rectangles. This is supposed to be organic so I was not looking to have perfect lines.
If you look carefully you will notice that all three are different from each other. I was not looking to be perfect. I wanted more of an organic freehand look.
