Farmhouse Kitchen Plate Rack Makeover


 My new project begins with this circa 1970's wood shelf with plate groove that I purchased at a garage sale this summer.  I think it may be a Home Interiors shelf.

I gave it a couple of coats of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White.  

I love white ironstone dishes.  I got a place setting  for eight for $5 at a local thrift shop recently.  The plates are Wm Adams and Sons Micratex.  These three plates are salad plates.  I am going to stencil letters on each plate so I measured and taped across my plates so my 2" letters would be centered and even.  My stencils are from Kaisercraft.

I used Ceramcoat Select Black Multisurface craft paint to stencil my letters on with a small craft roller.  As you can see I distressed my shelf using 100 grit sandpaper and then waxed it.

 Next time I paint my kitchen I will not have a chalkboard wall but for now, the white shelf and plates look pretty good against it.

 I just hung this long old cutting board that I purchased back in April.  I was pretty excited to find it for $28 at a local shop.

 I think the plates and shelf fit in well with my other farmhouse decor!

    I would not have thought to draw a line on the plates with painter's tape before stenciling. They look great!

  7. Really nice looking display Carlene. Love the long cutting board the best. I have several of the old wooden ironing boards with long one-piece boards that I can make into a long cutting board. Thanks for the inspiration.
