Hi all! This is my first post here on hometalk, but I'm sure I'll be a regular around these parts!


I love to repurpose found items. I made this adorable plate rack out of a "curbed" crib and some discarded trim pieces.
I decided not to put a back on this piece so that the wall color will show through.
I started with this old piece of a crib.
I removed some of the spindles and built a simple box around it.
I added a few shelves, then some curbed trim was added to dress it up.
A little molding on the bottom of each shelf will keep plates from sliding off.
Painted a crisp white!
