My Nexxt Cubbi Wall Shelf Set

I got my CSN Wall Shelf Set!! As you may know by now, CSN is this wonderful site to buy all sorts of stuff for your home. They have more than 200 stores!

They look so gorgeous and so decorative! I got the black ones and they look perfect next to our black framed pictures. Although I do feel the picture was misleading. Looking at the product picture makes you think the shelves are bigger, when they are actually very small. I hope you can somehow appreciate from my pic the size, but I can tell you that in the biggest shelf regular sized books don't fit. To be fair, it is obvious that it's not a bookcase but a decorative piece, but I thought I could still fit books in a decorative way. If you own any of the books in my picture you know they are small, kind of like mass market paperbacks, just slightly bigger. I decided to buy a real apple and place it in the same space (the smallest shelf) in which the product picture placed it, and you can clearly appreciate the difference:

I'm guessing that apple is sort of a miniature decoration apple or something. My apple looks uncomfortable in there.

Anyway, they look awfully pretty in my room! And they display one my favorite books ever (Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta) as decoration, which is something I've been wanting to do for a while now. For anything you need to buy be sure to browse through CSN stores first!
