Simple Plate Display Rack

Simple Plate Display Rack


See that plate display rack on the second shelf of the butler’s pantry?

If you squinted your eyes and turned your head slightly to the right….doesn’t it look built-in?

Or fancy.

Or custom.

It’s not.

Not even close.


When we remodeled the butler’s pantry I kept waving around a picture of a plate display rack that was all built-in with these amazing rod dowels and looked like something that they have in an English manor house with a butler who polishes the silver and prepares cucumber sandwiches without the crust for tea.

But we didn’t have an English manor house budget.

We had a yard sale budget.

You know….the kind of budget you have to get creative with.


Meet creative budget.

I found these extra tall plate display racks for only $5.98.

I painted them white and stacked them end to end.

They are so much easier to clean and tall enough to give the illusion of a built-in plate rack for 1/900 of the price.

The only thing that would make them even better….

….is if they came with a butler.  :)
