Gotcha

Ok, so these are the brackets I ordered from Anthropologie for $24, each.






Then today I got an email from Van Dyke's Restorers that had these for $13 each.
1. The aqua is questionable on the Anthropologie ones.  How many different shades of aqua does a room need?  I don't even know if they are going to match.

2.  You notice on the cheaper shelves on the top part of the bracket there are holes to screw the shelf into the bracket.  Anthro's brackets, as similar as they are, do not have these holes.  I was going to have to rig something to secure the shelf to the bracket so it doesn't slide off with all my (Anthropologie) prized dishware.

3.  Seriously Anthropologie?  It's exactly the same.
