Plate Rack

I'm not so sure this is a plate rack.  I tired to fill it & they just leaned over.  Maybe it's for sorting mail!  Here is the original condition.

It had some primitive paintings on it, but not to my liking.

I pulled out the wires, sanded it and gave it a make-over.  Red spray paint, that was on sale from Ace Hardware did the job.  A little sanding afterwards made it a but rustic. 

I think this would make a great Christmas card holder, what do you think? noticed?  One wire WAS missing.  But it adds to the charm of the piece.  I might try and find a compatible wire.

Linking up to Junker Newbie's Would You Buy It Wed..  This is a fun blog to see what others might consider buying. 


  1. hmmm, don't have a clue as to what that is, but think it would be great as a Christmas Card holder. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I have no clue what it is either but would make a cute plate holder!

  3. It looks like an old 45 record holder to me from back in the day.

  4. I like it much better after your re-do! Great find!!
