Hello loves, before we had a house I knew that I wanted shelves in the kitchen. I just think it’s a nice pop of wood to break up the monotany of white cabinets. Also, I wanted a place to put some super cute antique and farmhouse decor 🙂 And I really loved how they turned out! The best part is they cost me a total of $8 to make…because I already had the brackets and stain. But for the most part it is a fairly inexpensive project that adds some awesome farmhouse flare.
To build these shelves you will need a chop saw and table saw, a sander or sandpaper, a 2×10 piece of pine, some brackets (whatever style you like as long as they will hold your wood), and any stain of your choice. You can even whitewash or paint them!! To start we picked up our piece of wood at Lowes and it was only $8 which I was ecstatic about. We used a table saw to cut the width to the brackets we already had and then used a chop saw to cut the length so that they would fit perfectly in between the cabinets. Just an FIY we borrowed all tools from family but you can have them cut the wood for you at both Home depot and Lowes. I then sanded the edges and stained all surfaces of the wood and let them dry overnight. I used Varathane stain in Briarsmoke that I got from Home Depot. Then we simply measured the height (I’m not going to lie I determined the height based on this super cute fresh baked pies served daily sign haha). And last but not least we hung them with brackets that I already had from the Etsy shop Csonkascustomrustics and I started decorating like crazy. I had been dreaming of these shelves for months now so I had already decided what I wanted to put on them. I DIYed these antique glass bottles with a free printable I found on Blesser House’s blog, she’s amazingggg by the way. A blog post will be coming soon. I hope you liked my DIY farmhouse shelving and that your inspired to do some own projects to give a farmhouse look to your own kitchen.
