Recently, I put in new shelving in the kitchen.
I'd been eyeballing these Ikea shelves for a really long time and finally got them on my last trip there. I really like that they are more of a floating type of shelf. I also prefer a darker wood finish, but they didn't have any for use with the Bjarnum brackets, so I got the birch veneer finish. And I was surprised at how much I like the lighter color!
Eventually, the dark brown walls will get changed out for dark gray walls.
And the "Teatles" artwork was from one of my best friends from her London trip. She knows how much I love the Beatles and the tea theme seemed best for the kitchen. LOVE!
I did have to cut down the shelves a bit since they were a smidge too long. A little bit of sawing at 12am on a weeknight? Sure! My parents came to stay with me for a few days this month, so I used that as an excuse to finally get the shelves up on the wall. Nothing like a little last minute, late night DIY.
Sorry for the cel phone photos - that's what I'm rollin' with these days since I'm a bit too lazy to break out the good camera. Thanks for stopping by!
