BEFORE & AFTER - Shelves

I decided to redecorate the shelves in the
kitchen for Christmas.
Ask me, no dust? I'll tell you no lies!

There was a funny little cabinet in this spot. It bothered me hanging there like a sore thumb. When we remodeled our kitchen we took the cabinet down and replaced it with the Oak butcherblock shelves and brackets from Ikea.


BEFORE:







AFTER:











The best part is, I had everything already and didn't buy a single new item!
Have an awesome weekend!
We are hoping for snow here in NC today and tomorrow...
I've got my fingers crossed.
I'm dreaming of a white Christmas!

  1. This is so pretty, Dena! I love how you mixed different things on the shelves. Everything goes very well with your wall color, too.

  2. It all looks so festive. Your home is lovely and I enjoyed the post about your open house holiday party. I enjoy hosting parties during the year. I hear you are definitely having snow up your way today. We are just having buckets of rain here today which is OK by me as I hate to shovel snow even if I grew up in the north.

  4. Your shelves look fabulous! All of your decorations are gorgeous! Where in NC do you live? My husbands family is in Winston Salem and my family is just across the VA/NC state line in Floyd VA. We just moved to Atlanta in June with his job. We're hoping and praying that we'll be able to make it there for Christmas!
