If there is one thing this blog has helped me with it is finishing projects.  I have to finish them completely so that they are ready to share with all of you, and on the day that I installed my Rustic Modern Floating Shelves I was so excited that I just had to style them right away so I could post them.  (Psst…want to know how I got that pattern on my walls? I’ll tell you all about it right here.)

The problem is that I don’t have a very large budget when it comes to decorating and I have a really hard time spending money on accessories.  Am I the only one?  I want pretty things to complete the look of my home, but let’s be honest, they just sit there so spending money on them feels funny to me.

So I was in a pinch.  Empty shelves.  Not a lot of money to spend.  And a stack of paint samples is some of my favorite colors!  Problem solved!

So I took some of my favorite colors and thought up a simple pattern.

I ended up with rectangles in 3 different shades of blue.  The rectangles get a little shorter in each column to add some interest.

Then I cut a little spot for a pop of color.  I originally thought this coral color was the ticket.  But you can see in my final photos that I ended up with the yellow.  I think it pops more.

After I framed it in a white frame I had stashed in a closet, I added it to my shelves.  I like the color it adds and I loved the price!

And there you have it!

Are you guilty of taking paint samples too?  Something about all of the colors makes them irresistible.
