Cute!

Is it wrong to want shelves like this at my age?



From Better Homes & Gardens Decorating Ideas from 1960

Complete with real roof shingles! And look at those sweeeeet stuffed animals!

Whew! I'm in good company then! I can imagine this not only with stuffed animals but also with vintage kitchen stuff: pretty bowls or a salt and pepper shaker collection. The sky's the limit!

me too! i have little sets of house shaped shelves for my salt and pepper shakers. i would love a big set like that!

Ooh! That sounds super cute! I was thinking that with these, it would take the cute level up one more notch if one were to wallpaper a thin sheet of board with some pretty vintage wallpaper and put it on the back of the shelves.

Oh, scalloped shelves are wonderful! Maybe the roof is a bit much ( for me, anyhow, but we have a little Cape Cod-y house), but the scalloped shelves, row upon row? Bring them on!

Hah, love it! No, it is not wrong. I am obsessed with shelving. I have a 1950s/60s mirrored shelving unit for my perfume collection that is gigantic and unwieldy and can only be hung on one wall of the house. Now I have to find room to hang a printer's tray I found (which will then be filled with tiny tchotchkes).

I love built in shelving...that's the first time I have ever seen a house shaped unit! Too cute. What a lucky little girl!

Yeah, I have to agree with EVERYONE on this one and say that we ALL must have shelves like that. No, we DESERVE shelves like that, especially you, Eartha!! :)
