Home Improvements: Ikea Shelves and Blackboard Kitchen Table

Still organizing our latest furnishing finds, but here is our new living room shelving: A high gloss red Ikea Expedit shelf, turned on its side. Now we have a surface to display sculpture and to properly arrange art books, albums and domestic pets.

We also bought saw horse legs to make a kitchen table, but I neglected to measure the spare piece of wood from the kitchen counter that I planned to use as the table top. Turns out it was longer and narrower than I thought. Until I get the opportunity to recut the butcher block, we are using a blackboard as a surface. It’s way too big, but it looks good.
