Adjustable Shelving Hack!

Custom shelving is pure magic! It can transform any plain ole useless room into a fully functional space. And it adds just the right touch of fancy...have you feeling all sophisticated and organized! But, the "adjustable shelving" option, in all of it's convenience and extra coin-saving glory, will have you staring at those tiny little OH so conspicuous holes, with slight regret and uncertainty.

Having the ability to adjust the shelving, if you so choose, definitely jumps out at you as the most appealing choice...especially if you're as indecisive as I am. I'll change a room around...just to satisfy my mid-afternoon mood. So, it was only natural for me to go with the less permanent option for our home office. This girl likes choices!

And I was absolutely enamored by the perfectly constructed shelving when it was initially installed. But...it didn't take long for my extremely particular eyes to glance right on over our beautiful and sleek custom shelving, to those little tiny craters that stuck out like a sore thumb.

After looking at them for about the 123456th time , I couldn't take it anymore (I swear they grew bigger by the day). So I googled! And what.do.you.know?! It turns out there was a way to fill those tiny little pits of mystery. All that time I've been living in cosmetic agony, and there was a solution out there just waiting for me to seek it. So seeketh it I did!

My research led me straight to Ikea!

Once there, I immediately asked an associate for the exact location. I didn't want to waste any time getting lost in the wonder of Ikea's thousands of products, arrows, and turns. And after being sent back and forth like a ping pong ball between two departments, by store associates...WALLAH!!! They truly did exist...in the Kitchen Accessories department to be exact!

I purchased several packages of the "Variera Cover Plates", which comes in quantities of 100 for $1.29/pack. Now...it actually took me a couple of months to get around to filling all 568 of the holes....but I completed it! Over the course of a few days that is. HA! But the end result was WELL worth the work!
