In my ever constant search for more places to put things I came up with this.  Pear boxes (I used to be in the produce business) screwed into the wall with drywall screws and some black fabric staple gunned in there for good measure.  Then I filled it collections of Simpsons halloween toys.  The extra shelf at the top is an old plastic shelf that I poorly spray painted and filled with board games.  You'll also see two bulk jars filled with small toys used for bookends.

Side view.  I hope to paint these someday an stencil them.


Next are some pages from my revamped calendar.  I had a less than desirable one so I changed the pictures to something more interesting.  You'll find they don't make much sense. I was trying to use up remnants from my paper stash.

Great idea with the shelves, they look great as well. Wish I had some pear boxes now!

TO get produce boxes, just go to your local grocer, walk into the back and start asking.  They often break them down and throw them away.  They often appreciate not having to break them down.
