Styling A Plate Display Wall Rack. It’s been a while since I shared any new kitchen updates, so I’m pretty excited about this one. Gone is the converted pot rack that I up-cycled a few years ago, and in its place is a new plate display wall rack.

I love looking at plate racks in magazines and decorating books. They always make me sigh a little every time I see one sporting a lovely plate collection. I would probably still be dreaming about them if I hadn’t stumbled across this one on sale. Lucky me!
As you can imagine I couldn’t wait to load up the shelves. Unfortunately, the color of the original rustic wood finish clashed with our kitchen cabinets. No worries, a few coats of white paint in the same color as the surrounding molding, and we are good to go.
Styling A Plate Display Wall Rack
I’m borrowing my vintage blue and white French transferware plates from the upstairs guest room. Their different patterns create a fun mix even though no two shades of blue are alike. Of course that’s probably why I love them so much. Due to the different sizes of the plates, I’m going with a more asymmetrical arrangement than a traditional symmetrical display.
On the top shelf I’m displaying my small white ironstone creamers. Do you enjoy rotate pieces to keep displays feeling fresh? Me too! That’s why I’m so happy to have this collection out on display again.
Some of my copper pieces are making an appearance here too. The layered look seems to be working for the copper strainer, and the copper mold is hanging from the middle brass rail with gingham ribbon. I couldn’t figure how else to display it, but I like it. One more piece, is my trusty copper watering can which I like to keep handy.
The brass rail at the bottom of the wall rack is a good spot for my small bread boards and a dish towel. Don’t you just love those little S hooks. This may sound kind of weird, but that’s one of my favorite features.
Art Work On The Display Rack
The oyster shell is a new watercolor with coastal blues to add to the display. I have a feeling I will be switching out artwork for different seasonal looks quite a bit.
I’m trying to decide right now on what to paint for fall. Maybe a pear or gourds or more sunflowers like the ones from last year. There’s also a little space above the folded dish towels that needs attention. Any suggestions or should I fill the space with something tall on the shelf? There are so many possibilities.
By the way, I’m squeezing in one last photo, because these fresh flowers are too pretty not to share. It’s an interesting eclectic mix of flowers and colors don’t you think? Some of these darker shades have me pining for September and cooler temps.
