DIY | Open Kitchen Shelving with Reclaimed Wood

 

 

 

 

My newest post for The Nest is live – DIY Open Kitchen Shelving with Reclaimed Wood. I’ve been wanting open shelving in our kitchen for a while now and I’m really excited about the way these turned out.

Our full kitchen makeover is happening later this summer…the plan is to knock out some of our cabinets and replace them with more open shelving. I love the way open shelves make a space look larger and draw eyes upward. They also force me to de-clutter (as best I know how) and only display my absolute favorites. After my initial styling of the shelves, I left the house to run some errands, and when I got back, Joe had “restyled” them (aka, he had taken 1/2 the props off)! I was like, why’d you mess with my shelves?! He said they were too cluttered (lol), so I restyled them myself, and settled on something between my cluttered look and his minimalist approach. I’m really happy with the final product!

The wood is from Local Wood VA; they have the best selection for reclaimed/raw edge/hard wood/slabs for mantles, shelves, tabletops, etc…it’s all incredibly gorgeous and affordable!

I am so thankful for the opportunity to work together with Joe on these projects, and slowly turn our house into a home; these shelves wouldn’t have happened without his mastermind! My favorite element is the way he hid the L-brackets on the bottom of the boards…head over to The Nest for the full DIY and more photos.

    I LOVE this look 🙂 It looks so homemade, which is just perfect for a kitchen! I am hoping to put in a few wooden shelves when I move into my new apartment at the end of the summer!
