White Kitchen Shelves

We have a set of shelves in our kitchen which is so ugly it actually acts as an "ugly magnet" and attracts all the junk, miscellaneous shtuff and unloved bits in the kitchen and displays it like some sort of hideous kitchen mini-museum. I cleared the whole lot two days ago (and found a very attractive $20. bill while doing so) and will now paint the whole thing a lovely white. The original color was kind of a dirty mud tobacco brown. After a dreaded trip to Wal-Mart (or, as my beloved calls it "The Devil's Lair") I came home equipped with: primer, paint, a brush, some nice looking glass jars and a set of storage boxes. The intention is to pretty-up the poor unloved shelves and turn them into an eye catcher instead of the eyesore they've been.
I used the above photos from Country Living as inspiration. Stuck my trust i-Pod on the mini speaker and primed away.

I love, love, love white shelves. I long to have them in my own house. I'm so excited for you. Love all of those inspiration pics too!
