A Hankering For . . . A Plate Rack

A idea came to me yesterday . . .

It involves a plate rack. . . 

and my dinning room!

It seems the perfect solution for my collection of pretty platters and plates.

If I add a ledge on top, it would be the perfect place to display my growing ironstone creamer collection as well.

So I'm gathering up inspiration photos and setting a plan in motion to build one soon.

Thought you might like a look at what I've found.

It's a good look right?

Can't wait to get started on it.

Have a great day,



  1. Love your inspiration photos Robin. I'm in the process of doing a plate rack too. I plan on making the lower half a plate rack and the upper part a blackboard. Can't wait to see yours!

  2. Can't wait to see what you come up with too Robin! Thanks for visiting my blog by the way, lovin' what I'm seeing here so far!

  6. I;ve had a hankering for a plate rack for 10 years. I love the look of them!

  7. It's a great look, Robin, I can't wait to hear how you make out with building it. I need one of those, we are anticipating some major changes in our lives, and one of those might be the answer for my kitchen as well! Thank you for the inspiration, I shall pin a couple of these.
    Hugs, Cindy
