TV shelves

As you can see, there is a theme here..... 'childs bedroom'. This is because the floor in my daughters bedroom was ripped out due to damp, finally after a lot of stress, replaced and now I'm trying to make up for the fact she spent almost two months sleeping on a mattress on the floor in a doorway! A little bit of colour makes everything alright.

So here are some shelves i made from old wooden crates, with enamelled broom handle legs. Once id put it together it reminded me of an old fashioned TV, so i dug out a bit of my daughters broken push along toy that id stashed in my boiler cupboard about a year ago (nice when you feel rewarded by your insane hoarding tendencies). A blob more enamel on the end of that and i stuck it on the top like an arial. When my sister saw this she giggled at my logic/creativity but I'm pretty happy with it. Though essentially it should be along a wall and not in a corner, but small flats dont allow for much choice.

However, had i more cash id have wanted something a bit more like one of Will Shannon's cabinets.        And here you can see that mine is a very unsophisticated version of one of his.....almost!
