Re-imagined Dish Displays

Mar

Post by community member:

I love my white dish pieces–all shades of white. None of them are heirlooms or are displayed because they are worth any money. I display them for the simplicity of the white color mixed with the wood tones around. I’ve picked different pieces up at yard sales and thrift stores, none of them are new.


My displays pieces aren’t new either.

I have my everyday plates and bowls displayed on a re-purposed plant stand–voila plate rack.

White dishes of different styles are displayed on an old re-purposed hardware-store shelving piece–voila open kitchen shelving.

My soup cups are hung from an old re-purposed garden rake–voila cup hanger.

And another way to display my lovely white dishes in the kitchen–specifically a white glazed platter?

A wipe board! Hanging on the front of my cabinet, I can keep track of those pesky groceries that need bought and those to-dos that absolutely must be done.

Hung with a thick twine…

… and a vintage cookie cutter covering the nail…


…it makes the perfect reminder board. The glaze gives the platter a wipe-able surface using a dry-erase marker.

Look around, get creative, display the dishes you love!

    The garden rake also makes a great rolling pin holder too!
