I am excited to reveal the finished product of our kitchen shelving project!
The simple back story
is that we had a big empty wall in the kitchen
that needed some attention. I knew that I wanted open shelving on the wall to match the style and feel of our kitchen cabinets, but I assumed it would be an expensive project and I put it on the back burner. Low and behold, a trip to Home Depot proved that we could do this project for about $50! We bought the lumber and bare wood brackets and painted them the same color as our kitchen cabinets. We are so happy with the results! Someone asked me in a previous comment the dimensions of the shelves, and the boards themselves are 6 feet long and 8″ deep.
I recommend building your own shelves in this manner rather than buying the pre-packed ready-to-hang shelving. The later is rarely hardwood and its hard to find shelving that is a decent length for a large wall. These would also be a great replacement in any closet where plastic and wire shelving currently resides.
We might just have to work on our linen closet next . . .
