And here is my favourite brother (hope the others don't read this), helping me build my shelf. He did all the cutting and designing, I was an awesome assistant doing my best to anticipate his every need.
We didn't use Classy Clutter's measurements, just her basic plan and we assembled it different to. We mitered the corners and didn't drill all the way through to add dowels like she did but the idea was all hers.
Once the pieces were all cut he went home and I sanded and painted all the individual pieces. He then came back and we assembled it. My favourite part of the painting though was the back. I loved how Classy Clutter added a chevron design to hers and I knew I'd do the same only with stripes. I used a tutorial from here on painting crisp lines and I can't believe how great they turned out.
So here is the space in the kitchen without the shelf
And the same space with the shelf
So the shelf sits on castor wheels and gets pulled out when needed. When not being used it gets tucked flush with the fridge. See how tall those top shelves are? They even fit the large spice containers.
I also plan on using this for canned goods
