I really like the look of open shelving and could always use more storage in the kitchen. I have several examples collected on pinterest. So, I added a shelf above the kitchen sink. I used wood shelf brackets and a pine board to make the shelf. I counter sank and filled all the screw holes, then caulked all the edges so that (hopefully) once painted it would look more like part of the cabinets rather than an added shelf. I think it will make more of a statement once the walls are painted a darker color.
The door front also got their two coats of paint. I am going to let them set 24 hours before attaching them to make sure they are fully cured.
