DIY Home Decor – Farmhouse Pantry Shelves

This is a DIY home decor kitchen idea that’s worth a do it yourself time and save plenty whilst giving the pantry that rustic farmhouse decor.

Hence if you are looking for more space to fill the pantry without overlaying the expenses, then try follow these steps.

With the shelving, you can choose thick cedar board. Use a Wood Finish Penetrating Stain, special wlanut to give that lovely, smooth cedar color, and the same time protect the raw cedar board/shelves.

Hand rub the stain on to the boards. But don’t over apply it and over wet the rag.

The next step is to plan the layout for the shelves and the spacing required. Really it’s up to you how much space between each shelves you want.

From the picture, the spacing between the shelves are evenly apart, at around 14″ and the 1.5″ thickness of the cedar boards.

To keep the shelves leveled, use a laser leveller which will make the art of keeping the shelves leveled a cinch. Mark it and pre-drill the necessary holes for the installation of the shelf brackets. The brackets will support the shelve boards.

For the mounting, start at the top and work your way down. Starting from the top makes it easier to drill the brackets to the board.

And that is it!
