ledges ledges ledges

Well last weekend was totally crazy, besides having the party for Nicole on Friday.  I also had my friend Chino come over to finally finally put up my ledges.  When I started this blog back in Dec I started looking around blog land and found this great idea and tutorial for ledges (ill find the link) and I right away knew I wanted to do this in my living room.  Where I had already put up a gallery wall of pictures (and about 20 nails ugh) but I figured if I did these ledges I could totally change it up when ever I wanted (Hello my name is ARod I’m a changeaholic) lol lmao
Now I don’t know why this project has been a long one and one that isn’t even done yet….(see changeaholic confession above)
But I think its ready for its first share….
this is living room wall day one when I moved in (way back in Sept) when the whole apt went from beige (which I really really dislike) to light grey I bought a 5 gallon bucket and did all trims in a darker grey sorry about the bad picture this was back when I was on blackberry

    Hey ARod, I’m also a change-a-holic! I admire your efforts to design an apartment space & make it your own. {NOT easy to do!} Love the ledges & I wish I had a Chino too! Thanks for stopping by my blog & leaving a comment, BTW.
