Finally we’re getting the rest of the open shelving added to the kitchen! I’ve been talking about it since before Christmas and here it is April, almost 5 months later. Better late than never and no harm was done except that my nerves were getting frazzled because I was running out of space to store my white ironstone finds.
If you’ve been reading my previous kitchen posts, you’ll remember that we didn’t have anything on this wall at all. I’ve had a chalkboard on this wall and at one point hung a small, antique cabinet but they just did’t seem to fit this space.
We ended up buying two 8-foot plain pine boards at $10 each and had the Saw Guy at Lowe’s cut them down to 65 inches. We also purchased simple white brackets with curlicues. The brackets came in a pack of 2 for $10.
Hubby hung the second shelf on the other side of the kitchen and it was immediately primped with more ironstone. Total cost for both shelves was a mere $50. We used 3 brackets on each shelf instead of two, partly for added support and also because I think it looks better. Decorators always say to group things in odd numbers!
