Plate Rack Love....






Morning! I had wanted to post this a couple of weeks ago but with Megs room being such a big job it got pushed aside. I had been showing John all the lovely plate racks in my J.D.Arc magazines .....saying how much I loved them(hint,hint) and doesn't he come home from the shop one day with one in hand for me.....do I love my husband...oh yeah!!! He made it from antique lumber & stained it to match the island,he says he won't make anymore cause it took more time to make than a harvest table!!! Anyway, my next post will be Meg's room....it looks amazing,but don't forget..its her taste not mine :) Till then enjoy your day and as always thanks for coming by! ~Chrissy~

I love your husband...he does such amazing work!
This might be the best thing yet - I LOVE how you have everything displayed. But that's your specialty! :)
Think of all the possibilities how you can change it with new things you find or with the seasons....
GORGEOUS.

Wow, what an awesome job he did. I've been wanting a plate rack for some time now and been hunting high and low for one, but still haven't found one. I used to see them all the time, but now they are becoming as scarce as mannequins?

awal.ny said...

How beautiful. I have a plate rack almost the same and I have not liked the way it looked with just plates, thank you for the inspiration to do more.

Love the plate rack, and the paper behind the rack. I have used this paper in my home and just love, my last attempt was in my Library ceiling......it turned out wonderful. Have a great week. HUGS MARY

Hey Chrissy! I'm always shocked at how long it takes for the JDL mag to reach you, but I'm glad it finally arrived. They obviously give you some great inspiration if you can get your hubby to make you something so fabulous based on what you saw in the mags!!! I LOVE it! The whole display looks so lovely...you've outdone yourself!!!

Have a great week ~

Denise said...

That is beautiful! I wish my hubby was even half that talented. I love the way that you decorated it, incorporating the old books and tags with numbers. Perfect!

Lynne (lynnesgiftsfromtheheart) said...

Wow!! Your hubby is a keeper for sure. It is gorgeous!! I love the way you've mixed things up instead of just using plates.. Congrats to Jess!!! Keeping fingers crossed..hugs ~lynne~

Mrs. Sutton said...

Absolutely gorgeous - I can't believe that your husband made it - want to do a husband swap? xxx

Carole~Maynard Greenhouse said...

You're a lucky girl to have such a talented husband. I was shocked mine said he was going to read my magazine but then fell asleep. How could he have fallen asleep reading it??? I tell ya, but at least it was a step in the right direction!
maybe a shelf is in my future too!

Carole
ps..thanks for letting me know you sent my lovely gift!

Air Kiss said...

Hi, how are you? :) Your shelf looks GREAT!! How sweet of your husband to think of what makes you smile! I have an old vintage one I am painting & putting up later this week.. I'm excited, but nervous to work on it. I like how you added the faded vintage book~ sweet idea! Take care & have a great weekend!!
