DIY- Open Shelves

Open Concept

We’ve all seen them on the latest home renovations but after I repainted my kitchen white, which if you missed see it here, then I noticed I wanted some shelves to display some fun pieces along with removing some of the bulky cabinets.


  • 2×12 boards from Home Depot, either 8ft long or 10ft
  • rags or sponge paint brushes
  • Saw (like my Dewalt) or you can have Home Depot cut the length for you
  • Minwax stain in your color, my favorites are Dark Walnut or Simply White
  • Brackets, mine came from Amazon but you can buy them anywhere


Shelf Length

I measured the space of where I was going to put these shelves and mine came out to be about 24inches in total.  I cut these at home with my saw, you can totally have them precut at Home Depot when you buy the wood.  Then you paint with the color of stain you love, and wipe off access stain with the rage and let them dry overnight.  The next day you attach the brackets to the bottom.  I used a level to place them on the wall, marked my holes, added anchors inside the drywall and drilled the shelves in.

Finished Project
