I went round and round trying to figure out what type of shelving to install in our kitchen to go above a cabinet below that will be topped with a rough live edge pine slab (not yet completed). I stumbled across your industrial chic shelves post, found an old board laying around the yard and whalla! As always, thanks for this amazing site!!

Hi! Love how your shelves turned out. I was just wondering how much weight these shelves would hold. Looking at yours with plates on them, it seems like they hold quite a lot!

Did you use larger L-brackets or the same size that Ana used?

Thanks for posting your shelves!
