Last week hubby and I filled a blank wall in our kitchen by putting up some shelves made of beautiful recycled timber. I sanded the timber and stained it with some black paint diluted in water. 
We also made the brackets for it using some angle steel, which we cut into sections and drilled holes into for the screws. 
Pretty happy with how they turned out.  😄

Re: Recycled timber kitchen shelves

@prettyliving WOW!! So simple and looks amazing, well-done! Any idea what species the timber was?

That craft paint came up better than what I would have thought.

@MitchellM Thanks! I’m pretty sure it’s pine.. but not 100%. 
Ive found that acrylic paints work well for staining. 👌🏻

Re: Recycled timber kitchen shelves

Awesome work, it’s amazing how adding just a few nice shelves can change the look of that space 

can I ask what stain you used ? @prettyliving  It’s a nice rustic brown
