Hi, I’m Becky

For the last 5 years we have lived in our fixer upper home. We’ve done little projects here and there but now we are getting to the good stuff. I’ve always loved interior decorating and had a vision of the potential our house had lying in store.

I hope you follow along with our everyday life and feel inspired to create a space you love no matter where you are.

Kitchen Open Shelving

To get caught up on where we are now in the kitchen, I wanted to show an update of the open shelving. I originally loved having no cabinets above in the kitchen, however, since the kitchen is small and had little storage it needed something. I thought I would test out having open shelving. I went back and forth because I didn’t want it to look cluttered in the kitchen with the shelves. But once they were up, I found I LOVE open shelves. They are so functional I don’t think I can go without them now.

This is what it looked like after we had taken out the wall in between the dining and kitchen.

I put up tape where I wanted the shelves to go. For a long time going between 2 and 3 shelves. But in the end functionality won out and I used three. Plus odd numbers are always more pleasing to the eye visually.

I did a drawing of the elevation of the shelves and what objects I would put there. I felt like it needed to have a lot of uniformity so it didn’t have a cluttered look. Then end result change as I spaced out the shelves more, I nixed the idea of four lights. I ended up with just one above the sink.

Here is the end result. The pantry jars right next to the counter top are pretty much the best thing ever since I cook almost entirely from scratch.

I have a lot more to talk about as far as plans go in the kitchen, but that needs a post of its own.
