Mod for overhead cabinets

We just purchased a new (to us) FR Shamrock 19, cant wait for spring! We are planning out all the little things we would like to do to it, and I saw someone post a picture of shelves the added to the overhead cabinets. I think its a brilliant idea, as I believe the space can be better used.
Problem is, I cant find that image, which means I cant ask the person how they did it!
Can anyone help me? I'm moderately handy, just need a couple of pointers on how they got the long shelf in, and what they used to mount it. I could probably McGyver something, but I want it to look nice! Well... actually, my wife wants it to look nice... who was I trying to fool.

Can't help for the overheads, but here's one for the corner cabinet. (Not my pic, I don't have a pic of mine. Mine doesn't look quite this good, as I'm more a mechanic than a carpenter.)

You just put the shelf in the upper in sections so that you can get it in through the existing door openings. When I did ours, I just made sure "joints" fell between the doors so it looks continuous. I used an extra piece of ClosetMaid wire shelving I had around. Turned it upside down so the ~1.5" edge became a lip to hold things in. Used the regular ClosetMaid hangers for it at the back wall and then blocks of wood behind the door frames.

I purchased my 2014 Shamrock 19 last August. I just finished adding shelves to two of the three spaces above the cook top / sink. I noticed the floor of the cabinet is really flimsy so I added 1/4 plywood floors that also locate the bottom of the dividers.

I too used the Grey wire shelf,upside down, in my upper cabinets. I used the shelf studs to set them on.
