A Little More About Those Shelves
If you've been keeping up on Facebook or this post, you would have read about my drama about the brackets for these shelves.
Plan A: I chose curvy white brackets from the 2012 Ikea catalog, and planned to go buy them and build these shelves once the basement was cleaned up. I had measured the cedar planks I planned to use for shelving, and it was going to fit beautifully.
So when I finally got to Ikea, I was devastated! (pardon the hyperbole...I love hyperbole) The brackets I wanted were discontinuted! And they weren't going to get any more in. So I chose some different brackets and bought two to bring home and make sure they were going to work.
Plan B: Paint the second-choice brackets and proceed as usual. After the initial disappointment, I was ok with this. The substitute brackets were going to look just fine, even if they weren't quite as pretty, and needed to be painted. And as I read in a post today, "Don't limit yourself to Plan A."
I was so thrilled when I found out that I could go back to Plan A!
