Tools and Materials
- Stud finder (Mine decided it was on vacation for this particular project)
- Mini craft saw
- Cedar wood
- Nail gun
I spent my winter vacation building these shelves into the wall of my little kitchen. It's a fun project if you're looking to upgrade your kitchen and have a couple days to burn.
This is my lovely non-load-bearing "interior" kitchen wall. I jigsawed out a peephole to check where in the world my studs are hiding. My stud finder was acting bonkers on me.
Be extra cautious of wires in the wall!
Found you guys! The opposite side of this wall is your everyday drywall. The side you see is plywood. I used a jigsaw, a mini craft saw and all my patience to cut along the studs.
I cut a "molding" type pattern in the wall and used the scrap wood from the wall to cut more pieces. The trim is cedar wood I bought for the shelving.
I went with one coat of a black and brown mixture and then lightly sanded it for a distressed look.
I stained some thin grainy plywood for the back of the shelves and then waxed the whole thing with teak.
My wife had an idea of what she wanted on each shelf, so I measured accordingly.
Now its time to fill this bad boy up!
