Open Shelving Add-on

KitchenView-LACKshelves IKEA-LACK detail

Easy set-up using a few LACK shelves to create open shelving for the back wall of my kitchen. Used ‘bruised and reduced’ cut offs for the vertical supports, trimmed the horizontals to fit (they cut like butter).

For a special touch (really, only when I’ve got company), I tucked rope lighting behind the shelves to give the brick wall a soft ‘glow’.

I’d originally intended on adding vertical support in the center, but figured I’d see how they fared first. Well, it’s been nearly a decade of who-knows-how-many pounds of dishes, and they’re still not bowing under pressure. Good stuff.
