If you’ve been following my Instagram account, you might have noticed I was in Hawaii last week with my little family. We went to the big island for the first time and we loved it. We usually go to Maui which we love but it was nice to change it up and travel to a new island. I hope you enjoyed Jennifer and Krista’s posts while I was away. I love those girls!
I’m now getting caught up on reader questions and I’ve had so many questions on the rustic kitchen shelves in my not-so-rustic cabin in the woods.
Seriously. Everyone wants them! Who wouldn’t, right?
The renovation of a not-so-rustic cabin has been complete for a couple of months now with the exception of these gorgeous shelves. I had them custom made for me. They came all the way from Alabama. Yep, Alabama to Vancouver, BC Canada!
When I contacted him with the possibility of making some shelves for me, he was more than happy to accommodate. And he had them shipped to me! I gave him the dimensions, an image of what I wanted and that was it.
Open shelving right now is hot (not that I follow trends).
What could be more perfect for a cabin that is used by a lot of people? Who needs to guess where the cups and plates are when they are all open. It’s been working out so great.
The shelves are incredibly thick. The rustic barn wood is gorgeous. I was worried that it might be a little too rustic for my plates and cups but the top of the shelves are polished smooth. Amazing.
Love the black brackets too.
Now that the kitchen is done, it’s really nice to head up to the not-so-rustic cabin and just relax.
I have some artwork still to put up on the walls. I’m going to frame a bunch of postcards for simple artwork.
I love white and neutrals of course.
And whites with woods is my all time favorite look.
The wood just pops.
I love this kitchen. And it feels so good that it’s all done now!
