Gorgeous Farmhouse Open Shelving Ideas

| |

Open shelving is such a great additional any home decor style, but these farmhouse-style open shelving ideas will have you ready to install some of your own! They are perfect for displaying decor items or using for everyday storage!

One of my favorite DIY projects ever is my $40 open shelves that I built in my old kitchen. I know that the trend is probably supposed to be over by now. I mean, I think it was on the “going-out-of-style” lists way back in 2016. So, why do I bring it up today? Well, the response I get every time I post my farmhouse open shelving on Instagram, everyone goes crazy!

I still love the look, too, so I don’t really care if it’s trendy or not. Do what you love, I say! (P.S I miss them now that we’ve moved. BUT it’s also fun to style built-in bookshelves, too!)

Farmhouse Spring Decorating Ideas - Open Shelves in the Kitchen!

While I never intended for mine to be anything more than decoration, so many people use their open shelves as open cabinetry and store plates, cups or other oft-used kitchenware. The reason for placing oft-used items on these shelves is that they won’t be dust collectors since they will be washed regularly. *smart!*

So, today I wanted to gather some of my favorite farmhouse open shelving ideas for your inspiration. You can build shelves just like mine for less than $40. Seriously! And they pack such a punch! Get the full DIY shelf tutorial here.

And there are so many good DIY shelving ideas here, so get ready to want to make a project!! 😉

Reclaimed Wood Farmhouse Open Shelves

I’ve long admired these reclaimed wood shelves from Our Vintage Home Love. The perfect addition to a truly vintage home full of character and charm. Fun side note: her farmhouse table in her dining room was the first one I ever swooned over and decided from that point on I’d have one of my own someday. (I made my own farmhouse table years ago – tutorial here.)

  1. These open shelves are stunning! We currently have cabinet refacing occurring in our kitchen, but once that is complete, we are going to tackle the living room and integrate some of these shelving ideas. Thanks for sharing!

    1. I know, me too!! The built-in bookshelves in the new house kind of replace them for me, but I still miss the old shelves, for sure!

  2. I love your site. I only have one problem. The links (icons?) for Pinterest, Facebook and Google are on the left side of the page. It makes it difficult to read the articles.

    1. Sorry about that! I think it may be a screen width issue?? If I make my window smaller, it covers the words. But if I open it fully, they don’t. Do they cover the words no matter what?
