Repurposed Farmhouse Plate Rack - Raggedy Bits

Repurposed Farmhouse Plate Rack

Over the weekend, I gave my kitchen a declutter and a BIG clean! Meaning alllllΒ  of those huge big jobs, like cleaning the oven, kitchen cabinet tops, pulled everything out of each cupboard, cleaned and purged! BIG job but I am so glad I did it! Right at the very back of one of my cupboards was a plate rack that I had painted about 10 years ago and thought that I would turn it into a Repurposed Farmhouse Plate Rack and be able to display some of my sweet Vintage plates that I have collected.

After cleaning out my kitchen I found this old plate rack and gave it a new lease on life! Repurposed Farmhouse Plate Rack tutorial | www.raggedy-bits.com

I had to remove some dust bunnies that had very happily made a home on the rack. Then I went to town using the Chalk Paint. Three coats to be exact!
