its a very nice shelf i must admit,such gleaming wood and the brackets are so decorative.

is it really my fault i own such a lovely shelf?

i bought and paid for it out of my own money and my dh lovingly fixed it up for me.

do any of you get shelf envy?

You should have floating shelves
Made of walnut

YABU, some people just don't have shelves so if you have you shouldn't flaunt imo.

Did you work hard to earn the money to pay for it?

Floating (American walnut) would have been more envy inducing.

it is just so crass to show off about your shelves.

I bet they are <<summons up as much contempt as possible >>...... veneer !

I think communal shelving is the answer...

theinsider Fri 22-Aug-08 17:03:45

I can't beleive you're still being crass enough to keep showing off about your shelf.

Why do you think we all need to know or care about your shelf?

Bluebutterfly Fri 22-Aug-08 17:10:18

I would only be impressed by the size of your shelf if it was in a mews house in Chelsea...
