The owners of this kitchen have really maximized this shelf, using it to store pots, pans, pretty Dansk bakeware, and even a watering can and a basket of root vegetables. It's both pretty and useful, acting as a centerpiece in the kitchen and showing off some of their prettiest things. This shelf is sleek and industrial in looks, and very suited to storing a lot of gear. S-hooks are used here too to hang pots. And all for a very low price — qualifying this shelf for sure as one of our classic kitchen basics!
