It's no secret that open shelving in kitchens is the trend these days. I absolutely love how it looks and would even be bold enough to try it myself if the trend of openly displaying sippy cups with cars on them was also in style. Since it's not, I took the baby step of removing the cabinet doors over my fridge instead. This was the easiest peasiest lemon-squeeziest project of all time. I didn't even need hubby's help........much.
Before, the top of the fridge was the gathering place amidst the dust for school papers that need to be signed (cause I'm orderly like that) and random photos that still need to be shoved in a random box in a random drawer - no I am NOT a scrapper - and an article out of last month's newspaper that I wanted to save because I might need to read it one day, as well as Birthday cards that are too cute to throw away but have nowhere to go until I decide it's finally time to throw them away.
Now, the top of my fridge is clean, dust and clutter-free and I have a place to display my pretties.
Once I took off the doors there were gaping holes on either side so I used hubby's table saw to cut out some leftover white beadboard I had in the shed.
You can see in the pic above that it still needed some trim to cover the edges of the beadboard. That's where hubby showed mercy and mitered some trim for me.
It will be fun to switch out the accessories for the seasons. I've already changed it since I took these first pictures.
Here it is at Christmas and you can see the pretty trim that hubby added.
And here's how it looks today.
A super-easy, super-fun project!
Thanks for visiting and have a fabulicious day!
