A while back, I had found a photo of a plate rack that I thought would be a good addition to the farmhouse kitchen. I came across it again recently, showed it to the husband and half (but not really) jokingly asked him to build me one.
A bit later I found him in the garage with the left over chair rail and baseboard from the dining room project.
Which became this lovely platter rack.
The base board became the sides and lower shelves,
while the chair rail serves as the upper shelves and back bracing.
So clever and wonderful of him.
. I Love it as much as all the family treasures it holds.
All came from women I love. My Kate gave me a few as Christmas presents. One was a wedding gift of my parents. Another came from Germany via my mother-in-law. Most belonged to grandmothers and beloved aunts and great-aunts.
I have continued to use each regularly over the years, just as they had.
What better way to keep their love and memory alive in my heart.
