If you follow me on Pinterest, you know from my countless kitchen pins I love open shelving. Unfortunately I can’t remove our cabinets in our loft, but we can add our own shelves! And when I say “we” I mean Stephen he is the brains behind this project.
I collect pyrex, tea pots and salt & pepper shakers —I needed insanely safe and trusty shelves in order to use them. Stephen knew exactly what to do and I’m happy to share it with you today! You will need:
Stephen used a circular saw to cut two 1x6x8 boards then he sanded them.
Use a level to make sure your shelves are perfect. You don’t want sliding dishes! Use a pencil to mark the placement.
*Side note* Stephen used a dremel tool to make the bracket recessed in the board. It’s magical.
In order for the shelves to hold a lot of weight, Stephen used self-drilling drywall anchors. One anchor can hold 65 pounds. For each shelf he used four.
There you have it! Stephen completed this project in a couple of hours. I painted the shelves black and my pyrex has been safe since! Happy October 1st!
P.S. Recognize that tea pot? It’s the same tea pot from this post!
