Finished Plate Rack

9.10.2012

 I shared how the plate rack was transformed in the last post and now here it is all dressed up and back in place.



Love the beadboard so much more than just the wall.

For those who think I have no problem creating vignettes this one changed three times and this was one of the looks. I thought it was a bit too much and swapped the tray of stuff for the one large bottle.

This is just a cleaner look even though probably still too much for some folks. Of course this will periodically change. I have had the rooster papier mache tole tray for years.

Some of these pictures were taken on an overcast day since that is what we had here for days.

This weekend we had glorious weather and fall is definitely in the air.

I do love turning my lamps on on a cloudy day.

But give me sunshine and I am a happy camper.

I put all my ironstone back the way it was before we added the beadboard on the back except I placed the one oddball brown cow creamer in the center just to change things up. I like quirky, you know.

View from the master bedroom.

The beadboard added to the back gives this piece a more finished look. Now I can quit painting the wall between the shelves different colors. I painted two coats of Chateau Gray ASCP on the beadboard and shelves and was through. The outside color stayed the same. Mr. Savvy said,  "I can't believe that project was finished in less than a day."
Yes, dear, that is why I love using chalk paint.

Have a fabulous day. I am going out to lunch with my mom and sister today and meeting my daughter and miss Leila for dinner.

  8. great idea to back the plate rack with texture. I love the new color too. I just tried the dark wax for the first time. It really "antiques" a piece.

  78. That plate rack is lovely, Kim! What a great color. It really shows off your pretty ironstone beautifully. And I love those little cows. I tend to go around take away things from my tablescapes. At least once a year I pare things down to the bare minimum, but of course as time goes by I'm always adding something here and there. It's a never-ending process!

  79. Kim - You shelf turned out so pretty! Really pretty pics.

  81. What a fantastic platerack, Kim! I love the beadboard backing, and the beautiful details in the moulding at the top of the rack. I love the white dishes, but I do love that brown cow in the middle! Your vignette on the dresser top below is very pretty--that green bottle is lovely.

  82. I love the plate rack you have done a wonderful job. I used to have a kitchen with the fishtail fretwork in my last home. Unfortunately my new little house has a very modern kitchen but I plan to replace the doors and benchtops and I have a plate rack from my old house(not fishtail though) that I plan to hang on the wall as I have limited space. Now I know what I will do with it as it is natural wood but I would like to paint it similar to yours but maybe in ivory or white. I also have the same little white cow, I know its in my mums house somewhere so I will be looking for that today. I am gradually going through mums house (she passes away last month). I am finding many delightful items but my house is filling up so fast with her things that I now have to sort through and sell some things which is heartbreaking.

    Thank you for sharing.

    Lee :)
