Accessory shopping

Wow, I think I blinked and the weekend was over. We managed to fit in a few meals with grandparents, a flag football game and progress on our guest bedroom. Oh, did you forget that was even a work in progress? It's been a while, I know. We kind of lost steam. That happens sometimes, right?

We were movin' and groovin' with our glossy black paneled ceiling, then John put up the framework of the shelving system and then...well, that's where we hit the wall. Our weekends have been full and handyman projects just haven't been a priority. Like I said, life happens!

Since John's building these crazy cool shelves, there must be crazy cool accessories to dress them, right? I've been picking up random things here and there so I can achieve a very collected look. Not really, it's just cheaper that way, but it sure sounds good to chase that collected look theory. ha!

My goal is to be very frugal and minimal. The shelves really are somewhat of an art piece themselves so I don't want to distract from that. So, I've shopped Goodwill, clearance sections and my father-in-law's garage. I felt like I was on American Pickers yesterday as I was rummaging through old boxes and pulling out treasures.

Here are a handful of my finds...


  


And, just to prove there was actual work completed, here's a garage shot...
"What the heck?" you ask. It'll all make sense one day, I promise.
