About two years ago, my dad and hubby helped me make these Ballard Designs inspired shelves for my kitchen.
I loved using them to hold my everyday dishes.
So I replaced them with two reclaimed wood shelves.
The wood is from my Great Grandpa’s barn, and I prepped it by sanding it smooth and brushing on 3 coats of polycrylic. I *thought* I took pictures of this process, but they seem to have disappeared. Sorry.
I screwed the shelf supports to the studs this time, and screwed the shelves to the supports. Those babies aren’t going anywhere!
In addition to my everyday dishes, these shelves are strong enough to hold some of my cookbooks and baking supplies and I’m still loving the dresser there.
Do you see the “new” turkey platter? Maybe someday I’ll get tired of collecting all things turkey, but not yet!
