5 Minute Kitchen Update

I am a big fan of open shelving in kitchens. I think it really opens up the space and just has a look of neatness to it. That being said, I do think that having some things contained behind closed doors is a necessity.

I really wanted to take down this cabinet and replace it with longer wooden shelves and wrought iron brackets. Convincing the husband that this was a good idea, not happening.

So we compromised. I took the doors and hinges off the cabinet, which seriously took all of about 5 minutes, and is totally reversible if we change our minds. So without a lot of effort I have the look of open shelving without all the work. (I am tempted, but haven't yet decided, if I want to paint the back of the cabinet the same color as the walls to further the impression of open shelving. I will keep you updated if I decided to paint.)

It makes this wall in the kitchen feel more open and the access to the dishes is easier without the doors. Not too bad for a 5 minute update.
