Instead of having small items lying around the house and taking the dust, highlight them in a nice display shelf. It's a great way to decor a wall, and you will make some room on your counters. Those shelves are quite simple to make and will undoubtedly be a focal point of your decor. Have fun organizing your little collectibles!
