Hi there! I know the open shelf concept is all the rage right now...
and as I was contemplating
an easy way to refresh the kitchen for spring, I had an odd idea.
What about an open shelf under the sink? So, I gave it a try...and to my surprise,
I really like the look. I removed the grain sack curtain and placed it in the small window
above the sink.
Vintage grain sacks are so versatile, and there is no need to sew...I just doubled it
over the spring rod in the window. I like the neutral color with all
To add a pop of color below the sink, I placed our vintage crate full of
seltzer bottles on the shelf. I thought it ties in well with the other
wooden tones. Do you think I have too many cutting boards?
Maybe you're wondering where the "under the sink" cleaners and bottles went?
I placed them in the left bottom cabinet, where I had extra storage space available.
One day, when I can purchase some pretty cleaning bottles, I may just display
those under the sink on the open shelf. However, that's just not in the budget
What about the ugly pipes under the sink? Well, I used a burlap cord cover to
disguise the pipes. There is still a small section that's visible...but
it's not too distracting.
Overall, I like the new look!
I do enjoy my little sink area...I try to keep it simple, with only the things I
need at hand. I don't mind doing dishes, especially when the sun's shining
and the dish soap smells of basil- like Mrs. Meyers Dish Soap :)
I'll share some other ways I've refreshed for Spring, for this week's
Farmhouse Friday :)
