Gina, I love it your very creative. Wish I had such a good eye for decorations.

That is so inline with my decorating themes...cactus wrens and howling things. What method do you used to affix things (like the shelf and the decoration) to the wall? I want to use the space on each side of my closet for shelves etc., but I am hesitating over the best way to fasten.

Anne, both of the little shelves are mounted with "Hi-Lo" screws. They work great in fiberglass. The wood one is on small angle brackets, the red one has slots in the back.

The Coyote is a hollow steel sculpture thingy, no good way to screw it in, so I used industrial strength Velcro. It traveled for 8 hours yesterday and didn't budge.

I looked up Hi-Lo screws. Interesting! I can see how they would grip well in thicker materials, but the fiberglass on my closet is quite thin. Did you put some kind of backing behind the shelves or just screw straight into the FG?

I am really wanting a wall sculpture like that. I might have to haunt some Big Lots...

no backing of any kind, no. For lightweight items, it works fine. Nothing heavy goes on the shelf. Its just were I put my remote control and a can of pop or cup of coffee when I am lounging. That shelf has been there for 3 years. no sign of wear yet.
