1. Cost

We were able to install our shelving for under $100. Compared to cabinets, this was a steal. Literally! ha!

Just FYI here’s the link to the brackets we used.

2. Ease of putting the dishes away.

Having open shelving makes putting dishes away a breeze. I can see where everything goes quickly.

3. I love the look!

I honestly love how it looks in our kitchen. It’s open & light. It makes the kitchen look bigger.

4. I got to buy new dishes. ha!

I’m not going to lie! ha! I loved having a reason to buy some new dishes.
I found these farmhouse dishes at Target. They worked perfectly!

5. All the décor options.

I’m excited about decorating these shelves for the holidays.
My ceramic snowman collection is going to look so cute this Christmas on these shelves! 🙂
