A l ¡ n a my favorite kitchen : natural tone. love the stone tops, double sink. maybe the raised side. would want to be able to sit comfortably on the raised side- avoid clutter there if its functional.
Kitchen or anywhere DIY. Seems simple enough, depending on your gap between shelves, anywhere from ropes to ropes for your spacing. You could even use wider wood, just adjust your rope length to accommodate your width and height of your shelves.
