DIY Open Shelving in the Kitchen

Hello friends! We recently made some open shelves in our kitchen and today I want to share with you what we used and how simple it was!

I’ve always loved the look of open shelving in the kitchen, but I never thought it would be possible in ours. We have a small kitchen with no pantry, so storage is limited. But after organizing our cabinets and getting rid of dishes we didn’t use, we had an entire cabinet that wasn’t needed between our window and back door. I decided it would be better to have some open shelving and in return, get more counter space by moving canisters that were previously on the counter onto the shelves.

First, we took down the cabinet to find a blue wall with a ton of holes to fill. I was eager to get the open shelving up, so the holes still need filled and then painted, but that will be simple.

Next, I pulled out some leftover gray paint that matches the rest of the kitchen and painted where the cabinet was. I would love to paint the kitchen an off white eventually, but don’t have the time to repaint the kitchen now.

I found these shelves and brackets at Home Depot. My husband attached them to the wall as well as a peg rack that I found a while back at my local Goodwill.

Finally, I styled the shelves with my Rae Dunn canisters, some plates, greenery, and a Dundee marmalade jar. I hung a few tea towels from our shop, Faith and Farmhouse Market, on the peg rail.

I love how they turned out! It was such a simple weekend DIY and now I have another fun place to decorate and more counter space! Win win!

I hope I’ve inspired you in some way today. Maybe you can try adding open shelving in your kitchen!

Thanks for reading and God bless!
