Open Farmhouse Shelves

Open Farmhouse Shelves, Cow Print, White Decor, Mason Jars, Wreaths, Farmhouse Style DecorI’m so excited to share with you today a little project I’ve been mulling over in my mind for quite some time that’s finally came to be. I’ve added simple open farmhouse shelves to the corner space in the dining room.

Farmhouse Open Shelve DecorI asked hubby when we moved in to make me a corner hutch, but you know how that goes? Sometime things get put on the back burner and never actually happen. Well I wasn’t about to wait any longer so I took matters into my own hands and came up with my own plan.

If it had been a big piece of furniture I’d have been stuck with it, or at least felt like I would’ve.

I used my Valentine gift from a few years ago to cut the boards to size.  I was quite proud of myself, I even got out the level and made sure everything was perfect. I’m normally the stand back and eye ball it type of person, but not this time.

  1. Dawn, it looks great. I love things that are practical and beautiful too. You have extra storage and a place to display some pretty things too. Love the two old dish pans too.

  2. Good job! I prefer it to a cabinet or other piece of furniture. And am so happy you left a tall space for your cow picture. Those gentle creatures are so photogenic and look wonderful in a rustic home.

  3. love it and that sign.

    Love it! And I’m still of the opinion that your stained plank walls look amazing. My husband is in the tree service business and my father in law has a sawmill, so I’m seriously contemplating asking for wood planks to cover my drywall in the future… you’re house is such an inspiration. 😉

  7. Dawn….wow, the shelves look great and I love the accessories you put on your new shelves~~

    I love the shelves. You could still add a cart, plant stand or bench under them for added décor options. Your styling is so beautiful and serene, love it. I also love that there is always a pic of your fur baby in the mix as well. Its like playing where’s Waldo?!

    1. Amanda, I’m hoping to add the fruit trees underneath it for winter. Thanks for all the kind comment 🙂

    1. Shirley I think I’ll have more fun decorating shelves rather than a cabinet anyway.
