I like what you have done here . I have propped an Ikea 4' floating shelf under the window of my small apt to see how it would look....it looks great and appeals to my inner minimalist...

Room for iPad, headphones, plant(s)

Regarding falling shelves...do your due diligence...there are ways to make shelves stay up on most any wall...research, research,research

I live in a 60 yr old apt with lath & plaster walls and have shelves and kitchenware hanging all over...I like to use the "lead" anchors...they work really well...haven't had anything fall yet...

I would not recommend hanging stuff from drywall unless you can screw into the studs which are usually on 16 inch centres here in Canada

Hi Oceandreamer....

Years ago I watched as a waitress in a donut shop rubbed down the Formica counters & tables with cooking oil to remove (read fill up scratches with oil) scratches

Apply oil then wipe off....

This has worked for me in the past...but I am now Formica free...;-)
