I Finally Found One

11.11.2011

I have been wanting a plate rack somewhat like my sister's ever since she got hers a few years ago. Well, lo and behold if I didn't find three different ones when we went to the antique mall a couple of weeks ago. Now, I had three to choose from, but wasn't sure what would fit. I was wanting to put one in my breakfast room where the cow canvases are hanging. I went home and measured the wall and went back the next day to see if one of the plate racks would work. The smallest one was the perfect size, so I thought. It ended up not being able to go there because of the tall molding at the top of it. Good thing I had a backup plan if it didn't work there.


It is perfect over my chest in the hallway. Now I have a place to put some of my plates that have been stored away.

It is so hard to get a good picture here in this narrow area.

I love being able to put my collections out where I can enjoy them.





This is the only new plate. I found this at Home Goods the other day.






So Country French don't you think?

  19. Hi, Kim,
    Love your plate rack, and I love the cutout design.
    Glad you finally found one that works.

    And what a coincidence- If you check out my newest post from yesterday, you will see I just wrote about a similar experience with a plate rack wall style cabinet. I see so many things in your posts and designs that I love too.
    Enjoy your plate rack cabinet. Looks great!

  49. It's really pretty Kim, I happen to love plate racks too, especially the pretty Scandinavian ones.
    Although I use a Hutch in my dining room, plate racks are perfect for small spaces where there's no room for a Hutch but give that same hutchy feel. Is Hutchy a word? I think not! hehe, I love the style you chose, the molding is gorgeous as well.
