One of the “staples” in my home decor is the plate rack that hangs on the wall in the dining area. I bought it at Hobby Lobby years ago, and I have so much fun decorating it with my favorite plates!
I’ve purchased a few plates with the purpose of displaying them here, but I also love to use regular dinner plates already in my cupboard.
I love using melamine plates in this rack because they are inexpensive, lightweight and won’t break or chip! In the picture above, I layered mismatched white plates with $2 melamine luncheon plates from the grocery store!
Below I combined two turquoise melamine plates from Target with some antique plates from my collection.
This is a great way to display mismatched, random pieces you love but don’t use in every day table settings.
I’ve done several different looks here for Christmas – this is my Gramma’s Christmas china mixed with a thrifted Currier and Ives plate.
Small lunch plates look pretty in the rack, too!
Right now I’m displaying the bold blue and white plates I love. It’s such a classic, traditional look!
I can’t find my plate rack on Hobby Lobby’s site, but I found a nice, simple option under $25 from Walmart or Amazon. You might also be able to find a good deal on one in stores like HomeGoods (if yours is open!).
