Handmade Plate Rack...need your opinion!

This was my anniversary present from Mr. B. He has outdid himself once again. Isn't beautiful? We put it up temporarily so that I could decide how to finish it. I know I want it painted, but I am undecided, should I choose black (like the island, he also made) or the frosted off white of the cabinets. Here are a few pics of my kitchen (ignore the porch mess), what do think would be best? Right now I am leaning toward painting it the frosted white (with some light distressing) with black on the beadboard...help, please!

Here are the kichen pics...


  1. Your husband must be a talented guy! I think either color would look nice. I see you smartly have many finishes in your kitchen. LOVE that tile!

  2. Thanks, Renee. Yes, he is talented.
    I was just laughing at my pictures, they are all a little crooked...I am usually a better photographer that this. Oh well, just in a hurry today!

  3. I'm voting for traditional distressed creamy white. Expecially if it will be filled with wonderful crockery.
    Its a beautiful piece.

  4. Oh the white is the way to go! Love it!If you have time stop by and check me out at http://shabbychictreasures.blogspot.com/
    I am giving away a teapot for the month of April!

  5. I think you should go with the off white and, depending on the overall colour of the items you will be displaying, a black back. If the plates diplayed are pale this will shoe them to the best advantage and the black will tie in and link nicely to the other black/dark pieces of furniture and items in the area.

  6. I don't think you could wrong either way.
    And I've always wanted one.


I love hearing from you and value your thoughts. Thank you for stopping by!
