Pictures on the Walls 2

Wall next to the kitchen table

My grandma with the first four of her eight children. My dad is the one on the far right.

My great grandfather during WWII. I believe this was taken in Hawaii after Pearl Harbor was attacked. I'll have to double check on that.

My husband's grandfather in 1956. These pictures have been great to have up in the house. My oldest has been asking questions about them and it has brought the chance to tell stories about his ancestors.

Nice, but it needs a little something else.

How about floating books?

These clever little shelves are so much fun. I picked up mine at my local Barnes and Noble, but you can also order them directly, HERE.

How do they work? The bottom book slides onto the horizontal part of the shelf and there are two tiny little hooks that hold the back cover in place.

Stack the rest and enjoy. They hold a lot of weight and create a little spot for a small frame. These are really nice for me because I am out of bookshelf space, so this is helping relieve some of the double stacking. You could do some really great designs on your wall with books, the possibilities are endless. I'm going to buy some more of these and see what I can come up with, stay tuned.

I LOVE the floating books on the walls! What a cool idea! And those old pictures are beautiful.

Ok, I was totally trying to figure out how they were up there, I didn't see the miniscule hooks at the bottom!!
