Open shelving seems to be all the rage for kitchens. I have gone back and forth on whether it would work for our kitchen. Changed by mind when I found some really cool cast iron shelf brackets at Astoria Vintage Hardware. Not sure how I will end up stocking the shelves yet- maybe glass containers and bar ware. Seem to provide a lot more space. I’m happy with the look so far but we need to move the old electric plug installed by prior owner who had fridge in front of bedroom door. Need a sense of adventure and humor with an old house!
