DIY industrial open shelving. Boy, it has been a while since we completed a DIY project around our home. Since covid is still hanging around why not update some parts of our house while we are spending more time at home.

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.

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.

I love the open shelving look. The sad part is I would not be able to keep it organized.
Same here. Luckily it has our dishes we use daily so I am optimistic that it will hopefully stay organized.
I love this! I might have to do this in the kitchen. I could use the space.
Such a great way to add some extra storage.

Good to know that there is an actual name for this style. I call it “the modern brew pub” decor, lol! I really like this style, it has given my kitchen a whole new feel.
Haha I like that name better.
These look incredible! The cabinet was nice for builder’s grade, but the open shelving looks so much better. It’s such a great way to show a little personality and style. I’ve always loved the way that open shelving looks in any room, whether it’s industrial-style shelving like this or something else. This has me seriously considering taking on a little DIY here myself lol
Thank you. Gives it so much more personality. I would love to see your finished product if you do!
