We’ve been busy here at StoneGable building a wood planked wall in the breakfast room and creating open shelving! What fun! I’ve been so excited to share this project with you because it’s not too difficult to make and it gives the “back” part of my home a whole new look! Here’s the open shelves REVEAL~
The wall that our bar sit against has undergone quite a change. We replace a large black mirror and pictures with open shelves!
I originally wanted to display only white dishes on the shelves, but they looked too stark and bor-ing. So I added some green organics, browns and blacks. Also galvanized metal, a tad of silver and nubby brown texture from a basket and willow balls. Now the shelves have more life and a ton of interest. Limiting the colors keeps these filled shelves from looking overly busy!
Here’s a good picture of the planking, the brackets and the walnut stained boards. I’m such a fan of whites and dark wood. It’s the contract that I find so appealing!
I’m thinking of covering my cookbooks with burlap.
Don’t you love the little dog silhouettes? One is of Bear and one is of Beau! I call them my grand dogs! My friend Sue makes and sells these. She can do almost any kind of silhouette!
Late fall into Christmas is a great time to use pinecones.
Open shelving and planked walls are so popular right now. How about you? Do you give open shelves a thumbs up or thumbs down?
