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?
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. 🙂
