Well, I clicked on a Facebook ad again. Do you remember when that happened with one of my favorite tassel pillows? Well…. I swear the best things pop up on my Facebook ads and this one drew me in FAST. It is a rusty farmhouse dish rack for $28 and some change. I really don’t know if it is meant to actually be used as a drying dish rack because it really is rusty. The reviews are always read by me before purchasing anything. One was great and the other one wasn’t. She didn’t like it because it was rusty. ???? Personally, I LOVE the rust and think it adds so much character.
The reason I bought it was because I wanted something different and have a fun way to display my collections. I’m always looking for new decor items that look old and look great with my current antique items. This rack will even look great to display your every day dishes on or on a dessert bar for gatherings, etc.
Remember when I shared different ways to use a pedestal in your kitchen. I thought it would be fun to do the same with this farmhouse dish rack. I thought of a few things right off the bat. And if you think of anything else to use this for, drop them in the comments below.
This is the reason I bought this farmhouse dish rack in the first place. As soon as I saw it, I thought it would look so cute to display my vintage ironstone and all of my vintage wooden spoons. I collect oval platters and plates and pick them up every time I see them. I usually find them at garage sales, flea markets, and thrift stores. If they are a couple of dollars, they are added to my collections.
This little farmhouse dish rack is perfect for displaying your every day dishes so that they are easy to reach. We have an antique bar that we used in our old house that will also be used in the new house with open shelving for our dishes. I LOVED it. They are so easy to reach. So if you have pretty every day dishes, that’s an idea.
I LOVE to use things for multi-purposes. This dish rack would be perfect for entertaining to hold all of my flatware and dishes during a get together. And then put it right back out in your decor when the party is over.
I don’t see why you couldn’t use this to hold paint brushes, craft paint, and other items you may have in your craft room. OR…. for your office organization. Use the little cubbies for pencils and pens and the racks for other items.
