Hey everybody! It's kind of late in the day for me to be posting, but I had a chance and thought why not?! If you follow me on instagram, you may have already seen this little project come to life over the weekend. I promised details, so here goes...
When we added on to our kitchen many years ago, we knew that these were not our forever cabinets, but were thrilled to have the extra space for now. We have plans to one day replace the cabinet fronts with better doors, but until then we are making the most of what we have. Does everyone see the space over in the corner in between the sink and corner cabinet? Well, it happens to be the perfect size for wine bottles!
I cannot take any credit this project because Mr. did it all. Actually, he was all over the place with home improvements last weekend! Virtual high fives to everyone! He pulled off the boards that were covering this spot to see what we were in for.
As luck would have it, they perfectly fit on the bottom. And now we're off to Home Depot in search of shelving boards.
We found these which were the perfect size when cut in half - Home Depot did that part for us. We only needed two boards so the total project only cost around $11!
I rely on graph paper before making any major decisions. So I sketched out a plan for distancing the boards and Mr. cut a piece of wood to use to mark his pilot holes. He drilled from inside the adjacent cabinets to attach the shelves.
Here you see it with the caulk - we just need to paint the little strip underneath the bottom shelf. Actually, I might replace these pictures with better ones on a sunnier day.
Did anyone happen to notice the faucet?
Thanks so much for all of your recommendations! We decided to go the industrial route and chose this one. So far so good!
P.S. I should probably take down the Christmas wreath ;).
