Open Shelving Project + Inspiration

 Happy Friday!! I am sharing a little DIY project that we having going on over here, and hope to complete over the weekend. We have always loved the look of open shelving, and after making the decision to stay in our house for a while longer, we thought it would be the perfect project to take on to bring a little excitement to our kitchen!

We have a single cabinet on the wall between the kitchen & family room that already felt a little out of place, so we decided it would be a good spot for shelves. We have some brick on a few walls in the kitchen, and part of it is on this wall, so we weren’t quite sure what kind of mess we would get ourselves in by trying to take some of it down, but we were hopeful that it wouldn’t be too hard! Brandon & my dad were able to get the cabinet down earlier this week, and using a dremmel, cut through all of the brick that wrapped around the corner of the wall. After a little plaster work & sanding, we have a blank canvas for painting & installing shelves this weekend! Here is a little before picture, and a progress picture, I can’t wait to share the finished product! 

Are you a fan of open shelving?! These are a few of my favorite inspiration photos that I have been looking at along the way. I love the idea of floating shelves, but they can be a bit tricky in terms of holding a lot of weight, we would have needed to anchor them inside of the studs behind the drywall, which wasn’t an option here. So, we are on the hunt for the perfect bracket hardware, I am leaning towards brass/gold, I love the look of mixed metals.

I will always love a bright white kitchen, but that last kitchen with wood cabinets is so drool worthy! 🙂 Hope you all stay warm & have a great weekend! XO

  1. We love open shelving in ours kitchen! We have used the Ekby brackets from IKEA in our last and current kitchen. (If my husband didn't hate gold toned things I would have brass probably)We have a mix of upper cabinetry and open shelving and I think it works really well.

  2. It will look so good on that wall!! An updated house tour would be great to see and read about. And also, which color paints have you used in the dining room?!

  3. can't wait to see finished project and what kind of bracket you end up using! we just put some shelves up in our bedroom and did something like the second picture, but I sprayed painted the brackets gold! I'm in LOVE with them! So…I think that's what you should do! I also think it fits perfectly in your house 🙂

  4. Boiling could be a common methodology of purification, as a matter of reality, one in every of the oldest and most well-known. it's definitely a lot of old than microwavable, chemical, or electrical devices conjointly used for cleanup bottles a day see more information.
