It seems like the majority of the Swedish homes have a plate rack and style it with beautiful plates and knick knacks and an occasional tea towel draped very stylishly over one of the rungs. I love that idea.
And, I also love them as part of a hutch.

I loved the full wall ones like KariAnne from Thistlewood Farm
Or this one from DecoPad
Or the one from Room for Rent
But for some reason I just couldn't commit to it. I was afraid I would get tired of it, or someone would bump it coming in and out the back door. So I just kept it on my "I would really like that" list.
Then one day while pursing Pintrest I found the perfect inspiration piece.
I could use it in the space and when/if I got tired of it there I could move it to other rooms and even repurpose it to serve another function.
So the hubs purchased the wood and constructed it for me by using the above picture as a guide ... I'll have a tutorial in a future post.
And here it is...
This picture was taken from our back porch. That is the exact door that I've been worried would cause problems with a rack being there.
But as you can see... the rack has a very narrow profile.
And, I think the best part is I can style it to my little heart's content.
Thank you for stopping by.
