On the bright side though, at least it fell when Abby was not in the room. Now I am seriously considering getting a handyman.....
UPDATE : I hung the shelf again!
I'm not sure what happened. When I finally cooled down enough to go inspect the damage, the wall hooks were all in place and so were the brackets on the back of the shelf. HMMMMM??? There are a couple of dings on the wall that you can't see in the picture. It will be easy to touch those up though. So it's back up again and loaded up as you can see. Stay tuned to see if it makes it through the night. Luckily nothing up there is breakable.
Then Meema came over with additional hardware for hanging the shelf. I didn't use it yet. I will though if/when the shelf falls down again. Thank you Meema for doing that for me! Especially after I was grouchy with you when telling you that the shelf fell down. I'm sorry. LOVE YA :)
