I don't have any shelves hung in the common areas yet. Have I mentioned, it takes months to get my husband to hang anything for me? But he's the best, so I shall wait.
My kids were quick to get him to hang shelves in their rooms though. I didn't have much say, and they kind of did their own thing. Which is good by me.
And my little boys is the funniest to me. They wanted that shelf way up there, so no one would bump their heads walking into the room. Then they put their best treasures up. I came in to find a wall of iron man. We have since taken that display down. We are working on painting a book ledge and some thrifted frames, and I think, it won't look so funny with that high shelf anymore. We just need Dad to cooperate.
