I have lots of shelves in my home, but this one is my favourite at this moment.
I really like to move stuff around, so it looks a bit different every week! The newest item on the shelf is the antler on the shield.
I bought it at the Burberry Antique stand while I was visiting the Amsterdam Woonbeurs last week.
Despite that I already have 3 antler skulls this one is special because the others have no shield and they're without the informing text on th skull that says on which day the deer is shot; this one was shot 1917 in Hersbach. I love to add old items in my house to give it a more personal touch.
I found the bird house, which is next to the antler, in a one euro shop, my son loved it so much...
The zig zag paper was the packaging of the nice ABC poster
that I bought at the twenty-somethin.nl shop. I think some things are so nice to recycle and I love to show or use them in another way then they were really ment for. Just like I did with the wrapping papper, It has become a little art work! Also love my ABC poster a lot, I haven't seen this one much around.
The cross on my shelf is repainted in black, when I received it,
as a small instaswap gift from an IG friend (@leeffstijl), it was painted in grey chalkpaint. The cross is hung on a wire, to prevent holes in my wall ;) That's also the reason why I choose to attache the poster on the wall with masking tape.
My shelf is in my kitchen, and it's almost the first thing I see when I enter
the home through the backdoor. It always makes me happy to see all my nice items together,
but my husband thinks otherwise sometimes...
Especially about the fact that I hide the electric socket with my stuff!
I really love the lighting above my shelf.
They are formal bike lights, and they also refer to Sil (my husband) his hobby; restoring old motor bikes.
So no complains from him about the lights;)
My style is so different and hard to explain.
I like old things, with an industrial or tough look but I also like to add new, modern things
mostly in black and white, I always love that combination!
