Open shelving diy + kitchen before

Let’s take a trip down memory lane and look back at the before of our kitchen:


When we renovated (we worked with a contractor) we wanted to keep the solid oak cabinets. They are beautiful. I wanted to change the style of the cabinets so we removed the molding and adding a craftsman style molding. We removed the peninsula and the upper run of cabinets on the left wall. Gave them fresh paint (uppers painted picket fence and lowers painted coal black from Fusion Mineral Paint). We decided to add open shelving we used 2×12 southern pine boards (cut to size, sand edges + sealer) and shelf brackets from Amazon.
