DIY Kitchen Wall Shelf

I wanted to quickly share with you a picture of my finally finished DIY kitchen wall shelf! I don't have pictures of the process since my loving husband did all the work on this project. You see, we have to come up with some pretty creative ways to add storage to our small apartment kitchen. Utilizing wall space is a great way to do that, but wall shelves can sometimes get expensive. We decided to simply make our own.

You might be thinking that it looks and awful lot like some floor shelving units that you've seen before. That's because it came from one!

We wanted a kitchen shelving unit to go between our chest freezer and our prep table. The only problem was, to get a shelf wide enough for the space, it was way too tall. That's when my handy husband saved the day! 

He cut the main support poles of the shelving unit down to only have three shelves. The other two shelves he used to put on the wall for me! Finding a way to support all the weight with only one stud in the middle of the wall was interesting, but once that was taken care of, I suddenly had two more shelves of storage in my kitchen! 

Now all I need is a bookend for my leaning cookbooks! I'm sure I'll find more fun kitchen gadgets to decorate utilize my shelf space!
