American Rehab: Virginia – Mt. Airy Kitchen airy looking diy kitchen open shelving
Open shelves are great for any room as not only are they a great storage idea, but they also don't look bulky. To make these kitchen shelves, buy nice chunky 2 × 12 cuts for the shelves at 30 inches. Give it a nice rub with some Danish oil in the "natural" color. It's just meant to highlight the natural hues of the wood and highlight the pretty veins and imperfections. It brings the wood to life, as kitsch as it sounds. Let the wood dry completely (it only takes about 30 minutes to wipe off the extra oil, then 8 hours before you actually use it). Here's how to install the shelves.
