So what is the general consensus on Open Shelves in Kitchens? I know some people feel it just creates another dusting job … yeh or neh? I have been going on for ages about this project so it was really time to just go for it. A few months back when my parents in law were here on a visit, my father in law kindly helped us take off the top cupboards in the kitchen. YAH! finally … so what was left … this fabulously ugly blank space but it felt so much more spacious and light filled.
So this was Before the BEFORE!
I have to admit I got a tiny ‘ oh it wasn’t really that bad before I painted the cupboards’ moment !
This was taken when I was prepping it for painting over two years ago.
… and this is the ‘Before’ … and also the ‘During’ 🙂
I’m ok again with the decision to paint the cupboards … although it is up for another makeover … but for now we’ll concentrate on the shelves!
In a moment of panic we searched the shed for our spare tiles and thankfully we have enough to fill the void … ( was secretly peppering as I thought I had returned all the spare boxes by accident)
We have purchased the soon to be shelves (AKA two 8ft Scaffold boards) They are sitting pretty ugly in our shed awaiting to be stripped and dressed back up again fit for human eyes.
This is my vision, or at least a little look at the inspiration from my pinterest boards …
Stay tuned for progress updates folks and please throw your opinions, thoughts, random observations or open shelf experience in the comments below … will look forward to updating ye soon 🙂
ciao for now,
