Copper Vinyl Shelf.


For a while now, I’ve had this Oliver Bonas Copper shelf (£45) sitting in my office, still in bubble wrap. I was planning on putting it up in the hallway, which is currently still without wallpaper or paint – we’ll get round to it eventually… probably – but I was quickly getting impatient!

Yesterday I unwrapped the shelf so I could see where it might fit best, then I popped it down next to our record player stand to do something else. It wasn’t until later that I had an epiphany – the vinyl singles (which didn’t have a home until now) were the perfect fit. I relayed this information back to Jordan when he got home (and we had already consumed a few beers) and out came the power tools!
I had originally planned to put plants in here, so my lovely hanging Ivy is the perfect fit – while the singles actually have a place to live that isn’t the floor.

The print we had on the wall there fits perfectly on top of the shelf too, so it all worked out so well. I am hopefully going to be selling these prints in my shop when it launches – I’ll keep you posted on that.

Oh, so I had to fit in another snap of my cute little cacti there too. See yesterday’s post for details on that.

What do you think of our cute shelf? I’m going metallic mental at the moment. If you fancy seeing more home snaps, I post a lot on my Instagram!
