My New Wall Plate Rack

Hello sweet friends!

I'm sorry I haven't been around for a little over two weeks and I've missed you!

You see we've been having Victoria and Cayetana, our adorable grandgirls for a couple of weeks and I know most of you know how much time kids need from us the grands... and by the way, they're still here, hehehee

I've even hosted Cayetana's ninth birthday bash with twenty kids of various ages and it was a success. I'll do a little post soon, but in the meanwhile, here is my new kitchen 'wall plate rack' I've been wanting and planning it for so long, but never got to go ahead and do it!

Hubby was going to build it himself, but the girls came so he made a draft of what we wanted and had it made at the same place where we had our kitchen cabinets done five years ago... except it's white so it just fades with the white wall.

With that said...

I am so very excited with it, I love it!

Hubby was so great to have it made for me as he didn't have time to make it himself.
He was so clever as to squeeze this piece of furniture in such a small and skinny space 4 inches deep...genius even! 

The picture above shows what the little space behind the entrance door to the kitchen was before, with just the girls drawings when they were very young.

I'm so excited this project is finally concluded and looking great too!

These three shelves at the lowest part of the plate rack is a bonus, where  I placed some tins with our coffee, Stevia and white sugar pockets, along with all my teas of many different flavors.


So Mr. Living 'just' did a little tweaking and he said knowing you, you will have a tin collection in no time to fill this space, lol..

He loved the teas gathered together alone. I think I do too!

My fav platters and plates at arm's reach, cause most of them I forget they exist as they're so deep somewhere in storage.

The last plate shelf contains vintage sterling silver from my Mil.
Thank you Mr. Living, I totally love this... and you too!!

The door next to the rack opens to the dining room.

This is what it's like when we open the kitchen service entrance door. Therefore, the plate rack rests on the wall directly towards the back of the door.

Thank you so much for your sweet and kind comments, you always make my day!

Thanking the lovely hostesses for having me at their great parties.

I just found out dearest and sweet Sally D'Stefano of BLUE MONDAY and SMILING SALLY BLOG, has died and it is such a sad news for us bloggers and our small community.
I always thought of Blue Monday when I created a post and was so happy I had something BLUE so I can join her. I guess our Lord Jesus has invited her to join His party, the best one of all!

Rest in peace dearest friend, I will miss you very much.
