Custom Iron Kitchen Shelves Update

Sorry it’s been so long since I’ve posted- Mr. Manor and I just got back from our needed vacation which was amazing!! photo 4 (2) photo 3 (2) photo 2 (2) photo 1 (2) photo 5 (1) photo 4 (1) photo 3 (1) photo 2 (1) photo 1 (1) photo 5 photo 4 photo 3 photo 2 photo 1

You just can’t really describe how beautiful the water is; or how white the sand is…now that I’m back things are finishing up before we start saving for our Master Bedroom remodel. Our kitchen shelves are just about finished. I finalized some tiny details this morning, so hopefully  next week they will be installed!

We’re using the remainder of the barnwood that was torn out of our slate room (used as wainscotting) and used for our kitchen island seen here:

We had just enough leftover for our kitchen island:

Here are two samples: the top is the untreated barnwood; the bottom is clear coated. There were too many nails to run them through a miller; so we decided to just finish the tops so our glasses, platters, and stemware would sit firmly, but leave the bottom as the original look since that’s what you would really see.

After some back and forth on sketching, I came up with this modified lamb’s tongue design to tie in the staircase in the living room. The individual pieces are forged in the picture above, and just laid out (not welded yet). The top photo is a the side of one of the shelf frames.





The last photo is one completed shelf; remember there will be two that flank the sink (one on either side). You can see the original barn wood on the underside, but the top and sides have been sanded and ready for a clear coat. I’m trying to find out if we have enough pieces to use as ‘trim’ to just masks the sides so only the top appears to be sanded.

Other than that they are ready to go! I can’t wait!
