Open Kitchen Shelving

While browsing websites today for decorating ideas I came across an IKEA ad for open shelving. 
This picture is from IKEAs homepage.  Pretty right!!

This is my kitchen now...

First stop...Goodwill.  I found these
shevles at Goodwill brand new.
They cost me $3.38.

I painted the shelves a brilliant white.  These needed about 4 coats of paint.

I guess I should have paid a bit more attention to the directions. 
I screwed the screws too tightly and twice the heads came off.
I was so ready to quit.
After much frustration, I finally got them together correctly.

 I love it.  What do you think?

 So cute!!
