plate rack


Plate racks like these can sell for over $200 but I found this one for only $5 on Marketplace!  

It was a great buy, but I really didn't like the wood tone of the finish.  Fortunately, this was an easy fix with paint!

I had a can of leftover paint in this pretty blue/gray shade that was perfect for this.  I wanted a color that would contrast with my white dishes.

I used my paint sprayer to apply the paint because I wanted a very smooth finish with no brush strokes.

Here's an up close of the finish.  It's very hard to get this smooth of a finish with a paint brush.

After my two coats of paint had fully dried, I applied my favorite top coat to protect the rack from scratches.

The paint color I used is called Water's Edge.  It's a perfectly muted blue shade.

It was an easy fix for only $5 spent!  Now it makes a pretty display while also providing extra storage!
