We picked up all of our materials at Home Depot - brackets, bronze spray paint for the brackets, wood and stain. It was a gorgeous day so Matt was able to do most of the staining and spray painting outside.
After letting the stain dry for a day or so, we got to hanging it up and it is perfect! Just what I was hoping for and a great addition of space and storage for our small kitchen.
We currently have several more items up there on the shelf but I am always working on making it pretty and practical.
I'm looking forward to doing more projects around the house with Matt, especially as the weather gets nice. On our list for this spring are fixing up our floors, a small patio garden, making a sandbox, water table and swing for the backyard, converting Sommer's room into a shared bedroom and fixing up our deck a bit.
Do you have any home projects lined up?
