DIY Open Shelving by Lemon Thistle


We’ve been using our kitchen for a couple months now, but the finishing touches are finally in the works. A while back, we installed these open shelves above our dishwasher and I couldn’t be happier with them! Not only do they get my dishes off the counter but the real wood planks give the Ikea brackets a custom look that I love.  The best part about these shelves? They cost us less than $20 each!

ABOUT COLLEEN: Wife; new mama to twins; and lover of pretty things. Lemon Thistle is my little corner of the web to try to document the beauty of life as it speeds by. You can always find parties, home decor, good food, photos, and lots of DIY on lemonthistle (oh, and babies too!).

I believe you can have a beautiful life, home, and party without spending a lot – we’re keeping it real with a budget. Every day deserves to be special, there’s no accomplishment too small to celebrate. I hope that my children will learn to love the little things in life. In a nutshell- this is why I’m doing this.
