So far, I have not shared many photos of our kitchen, mostly because it is still quite unfinished. We have half of the backsplash completed, but we still have one wall that we are waiting to tile. The plan is to replace the window with a much larger version, so until then, we have to hold off on finishing that wall.
For now, I decided to hide the fact that we have a wall with missing back splash, by adding open shelves.
We picked up the wood and hardware at Home Depot. I cut the wood down to the desired size, then I sanded and spray painted the boards white, and we added the brackets. The metal rods and baskets were purchased from Ikea and are great for spices, glasses or just little knick-knacks. I love how the shelves are varied, but still classic, while still allowing room to open and close cupboards.
You can see the difference between the walls here!
