When I first started browsing through “thrifty decor land” these picture ledges were everywhere.
The Lettered Cottage had some beautiful ledges that she installed over bead board. (Stay tuned, because I am working on a similar project and hope to share with you on next week!)
Sarah over at Thrifty Decor Chick had some beautiful picture ledges she used in her playroom/bonus room.
And my favorite inspiration catalog, Pottery Barn, had them too!
You could buy these ledges online from Pottery Barn (ranging from $35 - $55 each!!)
Or you could have “Thrifty Décor” like me and get then from IKEA!
Ribba picture ledge from Ikea (ranging from $9.99-19.99 each) Much more in my budget!
I had always wanted a way to display wedding pictures and family photos but never could create a “picture wall” that I liked. But I loved the idea of these ledges! You can change frames/pictures out easily, decorate them with seasonal decor if you wanted, and much more!
So here’s mine! (Sorry for bad lighting, these are in my entryway hallway and the lighting is not that great.)
This is “our” side… (still need to trade out some of the wedding photos and add some of our most recent beach pictures in here)
This is our extended family side!
The little sculpture came from the Dollar Tree.
The frames are from a variety of places. I got a couple from IKEA, some were on clearance at Kohl’s, some I already had, and some I got from Goodwill and painted or stained darker to match my color scheme.
So, now I am just trying to decide if I should leave the bottom part of the wall like this?
Or if I should do some wainscoting (that will go right along with the molding I have in my dining room, more on that later!)
Love this idea from Decor Chick!
What do you think?
(I think I am doing it! As soon as I finish the other 10 projects I have going right now!)
