Sooooo I made something! An industrial farmhouse pantry shelf. And it was SO EASY to build, you guys. so, so easy.
I’ve had a strong craving to whip out my Kreg Jig and create an easy build for a while now. And I finally found an excuse to do it! Kreg Tools asked me to share a tutorial over at their new project plans site buildsomething.com. Click here to see my full tutorial.
I’ve really needed some extra storage in our kitchen for a while now, but have never been able to find just the right thing for my style at the dimensions I would need it. I have this teeny wall that I have never been able to figure out what to do with. I’ve tried a few different things, but nothing seems to fit in that space. It’s really a short wall, just over 3 feet wide, and whatever I put there needs to be narrow so it doesn’t take up walking space when people come around the corner into the kitchen.
(I partnered with Kreg Tools and buildsomething.com to bring you this awesome shelf tutorial. I’m happy to partner with brands that I know and love to bring you amazing content. This post contains affiliate links. This means I get commissions for purchases made through links in this post.)
I came across this adorable farmhouse shelf. You can buy it here for a steal!
I love that this one from Target has wheels, and a nice mesh of steel and wood. You can buy it here.
This one is adorable, but is also too tall for the space. You can buy it here.
OK, and then there’s this one. Which is like the one I would want if I had it my way and if it fit perfectly. It’s industrial farmhouse perfection. sigh. Maybe in my next house! You can buy that one here.
But it’s just too tall. I debated building one myself and giving y’all a tutorial, until I spotted this tutorial from Jen at The House of Wood
There’s already a tutorial for that shelf floating in cyberspace. Leave it to Pinterest to make you feel really unoriginal. womp. womp.
I came across this tutorial from Cherished Bliss and fell in love with the simple design.
Anyway, I like the idea of the cross back, but I also wanted to build something that was easy for you lovely readers to replicate.
The shelf I made was inspired by these two designs, but is even more simplified.
I’m not even kidding, it took about 5 steps. And look at all that farmhouse goodness <3 <3
