|Ikea Shelf and my home-made Garland|
The shelf I ended up using was the Ekby Hemnes/Hensvik shelf + brackets from Ikea - mainly because I could adjust the width of the brackets and could sit the shelf on top without having to bolt it to the unlevel wall.
The garland I made using a range of Christmas ornaments from the House + Garden range available currently at Myer - that I shared about buying here, and good old twine. If you aren't able to find them at Myer, I know Woolworths has a very similar style of metal star available currently in their Christmas decor range, that would be perfect for this sort of thing.
I specifically raised the shelf up pretty high so that it was out of hand reach of little people - as I see this shelf being for displaying treasurers that don't need to be handled on a regular basis.
I'm really thrilled with how the room is all coming together. I can't wait to add some more decor additions above both the beds and then I'll get on to the wall at the foot of the beds.
