Because the kitchen is typically the most used room in the house, it's extremely important to ensure that it's organized and functional for all the action that it receives! This isn't always an easy task and often times takes some patience and planning! Which explains why I received the following question from a reader, along with many other's just like it: "Dear Jen, do you have any tips on how to organize kitchen cabinets for maximum storage and efficiency? I would love to see the layout of your kitchen and behind all those cabinet doors!" So I finally got off of my tush and went through our entire kitchen to take pictures of the insides of each and EVERY cabinet and drawer.

DIY Bookcase Built Ins If you missed the first part, check it out here and the second part here. Progress! The built ins are now installed and secured to the wall. These babies aren’t going anywhere. To install the overhang, I bought 5 of these L brackets and two corner braces. We wanted the overhang to sit further off the wall than the tall vertical shelves to give it some dimension. Then we added the L brackets to the studs (leveling as we went) so the overhang can sit on them. …then screwed the overhang into the L brackets. For some added security, we used two corner brackets to secure the top of the overhang to the wall. We needed a base to raise up the tall vertical shelves so that they would be level with the top of the overhang . (this thing is the icing to my DIY cake…can’t wait to use it again). In order for the tops to be level, the base needed to be 4 layers high. So now the tops are all level and the overhang sits out a bit for the dimension we wanted! So here we are now!

Imagine me doing a celebratory dance around my house…emphasis on the imagine part because I’m too tired to get up. First, let me explain how we covered the L brackets on the overhang… Remember how these brackets were showing? We first added some 1×2’s… …then cut this board to size. And then nailed that board to the 1×2’s. By the way, I just bought this nail gun . To install the crown, we first added some baseboard to the top to beef it up a bit. We added some trim to the sides and extended the baseboards around the front of the shelves. By the way, I used the coping method to install the baseboards. The top of the base will be covered later with more trim… All I can say is…thank goodness for caulking that fills in all those little gaps!
