Look at it. It's so beautiful, it's practically glowing... as you excuse yourself to throw up. I know this looks terrible, but I used to not even have the shelf... and there isn't much you can do about sore thumbs when you rent. This shelf is only a small part of my new beginnings, but what it does for me is HUGE. Please, enjoy the small things in your life- they could change it. This quick fix brought to you by a quick six... dollars at Ikea that is.
