Kylie's kitchen cabinets after she took off the doors. The "before" is below...
We love it. Inspired by our recent email, How To: Open Your Kitchen Shelving and Not Screw it Up, a few readers got to work and sent up pictures of their own open situations. If you have one, please send it in and we'll post it as well (to maxwell @ apartmenttherapy . com)....

Kylie's kitchen cabinets before!
FROM KYLIE: Hi there, Feeling inspired by your post titled 'How To: Open Your Kitchen Shelving and Not Screw it Up Email from 5.14.08' I removed my kitchen doors today. Before and after shots are attached. My before shot is from before we purchased the house. After shot is nearly our 1 year anniversary. Thanks for the inspiration!!! Kylie B. Sydney, Australia

Anna's mixed shelving: here's the open side
FROM ANNA: Hi Maxwell, I have a combination of open (for dishes) and closed (for food) shelving in my kitchen, and I think it looks pretty swell. You probably saw it in my AT home tour earlier this year, but here are links to the photos: >> Enter Slideshow Looking forward to the feature -- I'm a big fan of open shelving (for attractive things, at least)! Take care, Anna //www.doorsixteen.com/

And here's the closed side.

Jay's totally cool, colorful, open kitchen
FROM JAY: An open kitchen in our West Village duplex... stainless steel shelving on mini subway tiles. (photo attached) We love it! Thanks, Jay G.
