Ashley and her family moved into this Texas ranch house in 2008, and they took their time with renovations (toddlers do cause some delays after all).

The peach paint and light wood cabinets weren’t their style at all, but the first thing they replaced were the appliances. Next, they tackled the kitchen one project at a time, and now it looks like this — take a look!

Such an improvement right? Starting with the stainless steel appliances left open endless possibilities for the rest of the kitchen. While they decided not to change the layout of the space, they did change nearly every surface. From painting the cabinets and the walls to replacing the floors and the countertops (with a beautiful butcher block), you can barely recognize it as the same space. What gives it away is the pass through window into the living space.

One of the additions they did make to the kitchen was the open shelving below their upper cabinets. Ashley’s husband made the shelves, and we think they are very clever. Take a look up close:

They are actually hanging shelves created with pieces of wood and wire cable. It gives them such a distinct look — kind of like a swing — though we hope for the sake of those dishes, that they don’t do a lot of swinging! Such a clever, customizable solution!
