Remember this post I did about turning my mantle into a mantle shelf for our dining room? Well, I couldn't just let the legs that were supposed to support it go to waste so I just turned them sideways and made them into two smaller shelves for our living room. Easy breezy.

My father in law gave us these awesome books from the early 1900's.
p.s.-I'm hoping to have my dining table done and ready to share this weekend. We hit a few more snags along the way, it definitely seems this table is not meant to be but I'm not giving up on it!!
