Remodelista is doing before and after kitchen remodels. They are fabulous, including the “After” below featuring reclaimed shelves.
The owners made the floating reclaimed oak shelves themselves. They wanted to offset the slick surfaces of new Caesarstone countertops and white lacquer cabinets with something rough and hand-hewn.

Tropical hardwoods salvaged from shipping containers at the Port of Portland have been transformed into these modern floating shelves. We carefully mill each board to preserve and incorporate the rustic character into our minimal design. We then sand the shelves super smooth and hand finish with several layers of our natural oil stain. Past and present collide for a beautiful future in these one of kind shelves.

Why should shelving be boring? Our ‘Slide Box Wall Shelving’ destroys the notion that shelves must be flat, boring and serve only one purpose. Made from 100-year-old reclaimed walnut (box shelves) & zebrawood (doors) this set of 4 box shelves will create and instant upgrade to your home decor. We also think they look great anchored above one of our walnut console tables…just sayin’. Finished with several coats of hand rubbed tung oil.

The use of salvaged material in design has become such a strong sign of responsibility and sustainability that it sometimes becomes the sole crutch for products that otherwise have little aesthetic or functional value. On the flip side, some designers really know how to embrace reuse and turn old items into original, beautiful new pieces. Such is the case with schubLaden, a Berlin Kreuzberg-based studio and shop that makes shelving and storage from old drawers.
The frames are developed around the found drawers, the natural focal points of each piece, using either MDF or solid wood. SchubLaden—meaning “drawers” in German—does both custom and readymade work, and keeps a rotating collection on display in their store. If you’ve got some old drawers lying around or love a trip through a salvage yard, schubLaden’s work is an inspiring way to modernize them and make them functional again.
