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.
