Open Shelving Ideas

On Monday, I showed you our new industrial shelving unit that we bought at the flea market last weekend. I also told you that we’ve been planning to do open shelves in our kitchen for a while, and I’m thinking they would be perfect right above the industrial ones. Then we would basically have floor-to-ceiling shelving – all that decorating and organization! I mean, I’m excited just thinking about it!

This is of course a project that is months away because I have to finish our master bathroom, then I need to tackle the buffet in the dining room that I’m turning into a campaign piece, and THEN I’ll be able to think about the kitchen. However, it doesn’t stop me from looking at ideas!

Here are some photos that are helping to start my wheels turning…

This one is from Veranda Interiors, and I love the dark, wood on top of the white subway tile.

And I just feel like this one speaks my language. Reclaimed wood, with industrial brackets, on top of white subway tile, with bright yellow light fixtures! A blogger named Anne Sage featured this photo from the magazine Rue on her blog.

Again, this is obviously all down the road a little, but fun to start dreaming! Have a great weekend everyone!
