My parents were here visiting over the long holiday weekend, so that means we had to put them to work. They helped us install this new shelf in our kitchen right above the stove. Dad is the tallest, so he was best for reaching the wall to drill in the holes for the brackets.
I chose the Pumpkin Vine brackets from ANTHROPOLOGIE. I had my eye on these for a while. I think the green color looks great with our "aloe vera" green color in the kitchen.
I did a light wash of the same creamy white paint we used through the house for the trim. We added little hooks for tea cups, so we hung some of our favorite vintage ones that Mom gave to us. I think it looks great!
