Oh I love those plates from Homesense! I want some really interesting plates to hang in our dining room and I've been looking in consignment stores mainly, but I really should branch out. They are so unique.
Love the floating shelf. I want one for our bedroom but I am afraid that I just won't be able to hang it properly or straight. Was it difficult?

Thanks Shannon!

The floating shelf was really easy actually. We just figured out where we wanted it and drilled it in the middle. Then used a level to make sure it was perfect, then drilled it in on each side.
