Shelving Up With the Styleses
Get it? A clever play on the previous Shacking Up With the Styleses posts?
Hmmm...perhaps we should just move along.
I wanted to title this post "DIY Kitchen Shelves," but I felt it would misrepresent things. They are, in fact, DIY, but I have no "making of" shots...or measurements...or really any tips for you, except to find yourself a husband who isn't afraid of a chop saw. That's what I did. :)
I've had these shelves pictured in my mind for several months now, and we finally had some time to make my dreams come true. The whole project cost about $24 in lumber — one long unfinished piece cut into three, and what I call "the feet" (or what you might call the braces or brackets) were $1.99 a piece — plus we already had the paint.
A little cutting...a little nail gunning...a little paint and, voila, the perfect place to put all that Butterprint — which was of course the whole point of this project anyway. :)
The hubs also built me a recessed shelf that we hung in the frame of our big kitchen window. I have since decided I would like another one, so until I can convince the C-Boy to do a little more woodworking, you'll have to wait to see them. Don't worry...I can be pretty persuasive. :)
