Get creative with IKEA picture ledges

IKEA picture ledge

I love arranging things. And re-arranging them. Faffing about with flowers and pretty things makes me happy. I like the idea of an ever-changing seasonal display. A bit like one of those inspiring pegboards, but with a bit more versatility.

On a recent trip to IKEA I decided to invest in a few picture ledges – enough to fill a wall. They’re less bulky than traditional shelves, cost only £4.50 each and look amazing placed one above the other.

They’re just perfect for little vases of flowers and bits and bobs. My favourite way to use them is to display my most beautiful books face out – you can tell I used to be a bookseller, can’t you?

I have mine in our study, but they’d also look great in a bedroom, bathroom or kitchen. The possibilities are endless!

Do you have some IKEA picture ledges? How do you use yours?

    What a great way to display seasonal favourites! We definitely share similar taste in books & ‘treasures’

    They look gorgeous! I’m the same, I’m forever re-arranging our shelves, I like to think of it as a hobby rather than an obsession 🙂

    Yes! I do have some — they’re in my she-shed and regularly get faffed with!! I’m constantly changing things around; it’s lovely to be able to alter the content to inspire me in my work. They’re such a brilliant idea aren’t they? 🙂
