I’ve been unintentionally keeping a little secret from you. At first I didn’t want to say anything in case it didn’t work out and then when it did work out I got caught up in other projects and forgot to mention it here. No more secrecy!
I’m now a contributor/freelance writer for eHow! I’m really enjoying working with them so far and will be contributing original content there a couple times a month. I expect it will be mostly the kinds of tutorials you find here on The Chronicles of Home, and I’ll fill you in on my latest content there as it publishes.
My first post for them is up now – how to build simple floating shelves.
Head on over to eHow for more photos and a full tutorial!

Definitely heading over there now! I’ve been wanting a total of four floating shelves in my living room, so I’m going to head over to your tutorial as soon as I submit this comment (wanted to be sure to thank you for the post of course!). Congrats on becoming a writer for eHow!
Thanks, Erica! If your shelves are going to high, you’ll probably want to add a piece to the underneath. Mine were at a level where I could leave the undersides open without it being obvious :)

These look great, Jen! Congrats on your contributing job!
Those look great! congrats on the new gig :)
Thank you, Gretchen!
Congrats on the new job!! How in the world do you always succeed in seizing more out of the day than the rest of us?! Those shelves are fabulous. Also let me borrow those shoes.
Gosh, I feel like my days are like 6 hours long lately! And I do loooove those shoes, you should just go ahead and get yourself a pair ;)

They look incredible. That styling tho. Beautiful.
Well thanks, especially from an amazing stylist like yourself :)
I like the shelves. You have inspired me to hang up a few at my house! PS who makes that beautiful straw bag that is hanging under the shelf! I love it!
It’s from J.Crew, several years ago now though!

Yaay Jen! Congrats love. The shelves look fab!! I need to try some one day.
