Wooden Shelving That Adds Rustic Appeal

More than cabin worthy, here’s proof that some lengths of salvaged wood and brackets mounts can make great shelving displays. Here are four examples; for more ideas, visit Remodelista.

Love the rustic look. Before doing this though, think about how much cleaning that you will do to the items on the shelf compared to a closed cabinet. For me I would need to limit the number of items on the shelf because I hate to dust.
