Spring is finally here, well at least for this week it is. This means it is time for farmhouse spring open shelving! Earlier this week I created a free printable that I hope will help you style your shelves easily.
Farmhouse spring open shelving here we come! My first thing to always do when I start to restyle these shelves is to take away anything that reminds me of winter. This may include copper pieces, dark greenery, and towels that are winter colors. When spring times come around I always want it to be light and airy. I may not take everything down off the shelves because I do like to reuse many of my kitchen pieces. When I built these shelves I still wanted them to be useful.
My favorite place to start is the top shelf and work my way down. This is just a personal preference and you can start where ever you like. Many of you know that one of my go-to back layering piece is vintage cutting boards, which is something on the check list. These create a texture but, have them out of the way and in reach all at the same time.
After layering my cutting boards, I tend to just keep it simple in front of them. This is so I can take them down when they are needed. On the shelf below that is where I love to create different heights with different types of textures. Dishes and glassware are my first pieces that I start with because you can create different heights with these. I love to stack dishes and glasses.
Along with dishes and glassware, I like to add in some spring greenery. When you add in spring greenery it can totally change a space and make it pop. Adding in greens into the kitchen always makes it feel so warm and inviting. Every space in our home we want to be inviting. Once the shelves are styled, I head to the pegrack and add those tea towels in that I put on the list. The of course we have to add in some coffee mugs and vintage kitchen pieces. This time I did aadd a little basket in to create a new texture with the cutting board.
The way I finish up the space is to add some wood textures and more vintage pieces on the shelves in those spaces that need just a little bit more. I hope this check list helps you create those spring open shelves in your very home! Tag us on Instagram, we would love to see those spaces. Thank you for stopping by the blog today and everyday, XOXO
