I have been following the trend of open shelving in the kitchen and I wanted to bring that aspect to our kitchen as well. So, we decided to take an upper cabinet down and replace it with industrial open shelving

We had builder grade cabinets in our house, nothing special but they were functional. We emptied the cabinet and removed it from the wall. Don’t worry we will use it somewhere else instead of just throwing it out.

Supplies Needed

So, depending on how wide you would like your shelves may determine the width of your board and nipple pipe. I personally wanted a wider shelf because I wanted to store our plates on the open shelving.

The flange, nipple pipe, and cap create the structure that the board sits on as the photo above shows. We also added the U brackets to create a more solid foundation and decrease the movement of the shelves.
