IKEA LACK Wall Shelf Unit - Finally!

Finally! I feel like I've been telling you all about my shelves for years. I'd been lusting after the IKEA LACK Wall Shelf Unit for months as I wanted to have a way of adding some accessories to my hall without also adding lots of clutter and taking away space. I am not in the slightest bit handy (neither do I have any interest in becoming handy) so I drafted in my boyfriend & dad to build it and attach it to the wall.

I'll definitely move the accessories around a few times before I settle with how the whole thing looks but regardless of my indecisiveness I am really pleased with this. 

I think my favourite accessory of them all is the pink SAMSPELT Decoration Deer - I'd noticed this on a previous trip to IKEA but hadn't allowed myself to buy it because I didn't have a place for it, then when I got home I felt like I'd left a little unwanted pet behind. So of course, this time around I picked it up immediately and carried it around like a little show-pup before bringing it home with me and everything felt right with the world. Yes I am 27. 


So what do you think? 

My boyfriend let slip that he doesn't love where the shelf is but I phased that out pretty quickly because he was totally just jealous of the heart eyes I was making at the little deer.  
What is your favourite accessory here?
What would you put on this shelf? 
Help a girl out with your inspiration! My dad said he'd get a fern on the very top shelf that hangs down - I think that's a great shout by ol' papa bear.

The white fox ornament was from TK Maxx however is no longer available but you can find similar here (holy moly that's expensive) and here.

The white owl block calendar was from Next before Christmas. There is an outrageously cute shabby chic one available here and a little flirty wooden fellow here.

Artificial plants here from IKEA - if these are your kind of thing I'd definitely recommend a trip to IKEA. So many cute little plants and flowers from around the £1 mark. Brilliant for the likes of me, the worst plant mother to ever grace this earth.

  1. I personally love where the shelf is mounted, seems like a great way to add some personality. I've resisted that deer sculpture on so many occasions, it's so cute. The fern sounds like a really lovely idea. =^-^=

  6. Aw, I love it! And I think it's in a great place. Because it's by the door I think I would put a little key plate thing on one of the shelves. I do also like the idea of having a plant with hanging vines or something! The deer is really cute, too.

  14. I absolutely love your new shelves :) They look so pretty and minimal, which I really like. I can see why you love the Decoration Deer so much, it's adorable and such a lovely shade of pink! I can't decide if I love your white fox ornament or the owl calendar ornament more. I want both of them so much <3 I'd put a little cactus or two on there somewhere, each of them in a cute pot :)
