How thick are those shelves?
Century-old barnwood...varies in thickness from 2" to 2.75" Fuckers are HEAVY.

I just realized that I never posted a finished photo. There's 6 shelves that go up the wall and follow the hood. I'll take a photo tonight. It honestly turned out way better than I initially anticipated.

Plaster and lath walls? I know you said they were anchored with toggles. Got to be some heavy duty stuff

Yep, plaster and lath throughout the entire house. I've gotten pretty good at patching.

Massive toggles...claimed to be good for 250lbs. I have 3 on each shelf "bracket" pipe thing and the 4th screw is in a stud (that's why they're spaced the way they are.

Amazingly sturdy.

To address the questions...

I always take a plate from the one below the top plate. Though, amazingly the top plates really don't get that dirty/greasy. The vent hood is insanely strong, and that combined with regular plate rotation, I've never picked up a dirty top plate. Still don't use them, :doe:

The orange and gray photographs like shit (gray is too blue in photos), but looks better in person. We have brown grout between the gray tiles, and it looks 5/7 IRL.

The outlets are beige/cream colored, and the plates are indeed oil rubbed bronze. Much like the walls and tile, IRL the plates are way more brown, and the outlets are more cream. The contrast is actually :notbad: IMO, but I did consider replacing the outlets with brown.

Thanks, we are really happy with the results and effort made by our guy. He took his time, and it shows. 5/7 end result! Nicole and I did some homework on finishings and style cues, anytime we found something we like we sent our guy a pinshit pic and he took care of it.

The only thing that didn't work out are cup style pull handles on the small drawers, i had to file down the bases on three round knobs instead to fit into the slots of the shaker frames (2 1/4" frame on a 6" panel because I'm a :derp: ). Those small drawers probably should have been flat pieces to get the result we planned for. My contractor didn't know we would chose those types of handles so he couldn't warn us ahead. Still looks good doe. I didn't get a picture of it, but it's not a big deal. The house feels renewed and I couldn't be happy to replace 800-900 sq ft of 18 yr old tile with oak hardwood.

Sorry, still believe 1/7 practicality.

You did top notch work, though. :like:

Are those shelves just sitting on the pipes or are they attached to them somehow?

Using them as shelving around a fireplace would be a great idea.

I had ZERO say in this kitchen. I just did the work and gave some suggestions (that were ignored) on colors and layout.

TBH, the open shelving isn't as bad as I thought it would be. Dishes stay surprisingly clean, it's really easy to find what you're looking for (I can't remember where anything is my kitchen, I open and close cabinets at least 3 or 4 times looking for what I need), and overall looks decent.

Wap, to your earlier question, the shelves aren't actually attached to the pipes. I bought straps to do so but they ended up being unnecessary. First, they're so heavy that they won't go anywhere, and second when I screwed the end caps on, I did so with the shelves in place. Doing that tightened the caps into the shelves and snugged them into place. They can still move if you try, but they don't on their own easily.

All that said, I really don't care for the "rustic" :gag: look. :tits: would live in a damned tree if she could, but this is just a bit far for me. I prefer things that better fit the character of the house, but whatever. if I was 100% calling the shots, I would have reused our upper cabinets, but cut them down to accommodate the wider vent hood (which is really a 5/7 call), and had doors made with glass in the middle to give a see-through look. Painted the walls a more neutral gray and used a muted green/green subway tile with a fun pattern for the backsplash with a grout color close to matching the walls.

At least the functionality is solid.

yea.....those colors are a terrible combination, sorry bro :gag: . The gray backsplash is good and a light green wall paint would look stellar with it. The reverse would also be true as you suggest, but green tile might get dated quickly.

This is real design (as opposed to pinshit) 101: light colors open up spaces. So in a smallish kitchen with 8' ceilings you should NOT go with dark on dark on dark on dark.

None of the plates and whatnot do, but we go through them too fast I think. Choosing a vent hood larger than the range was also a 5/7 decision. It's amazing how much that thing sucks up, and we've already cleaned the filters in the hood. I think that's where most of the stuff goes.
