I love open shelving in a kitchen. In a LARGE very open kitchen with high ceilings. My kitchen is not large, does not have high ceilings, and has very little cupboard space, let alone room for awesome looking open shelving. But recently I played ‘musical furniture’ again and now my kitchen does have what I suppose you would call open shelving!
You can read this post about how I took the back off of this bookshelf and turned it into open shelving for my glassware. I also show you where it was to start with when it began its new life as something-besides-a-bookshelf. I have played musical furniture for quite a while now! It’s not my favorite thing ever to have furniture sitting in the doorways of rooms but with these 100+ year old houses you have to get creative to find space for storage. It works – and I have some open shelving!
Kitchen scissors that look good laying on open shelving. The plastic handled, kitchen aid scissors are tucked away in a drawer
This letter ‘F’ has been through a lot. It’s been broken twice and it made a little trip to the floor just the other day. I managed to slow its fall before it landed so this time it stayed in one piece.
I am thoroughly enjoying having fresh hydrangea around my house this summer!
My Mom gave me this wire and galvanized container for my birthday. It makes a great umbrella holder and tucked in beside these shelves very neatly. Thanks again Mom!!
The things filling these shelves has already changed since these photos were taken. One thing I really like about having these shelves here, I can quickly grab the pieces I use often, and I can display them too!
Do you like open shelving? Do you have any? Or do you prefer all kitchen items tucked neatly away behind closed doors??
