The wife was been going back and forth on a plate rack. She was looking for an antique rack, but has been unable to find one to fit her needs. So my instructions were keep it simple, you know I don’t like fancy. So with her supervision, this is what I came up with.

Its made of poplar I sawed out a few years ago.

Finish is milk paint

The blog is here.

As always, thanks for looking.

Very nice Don.

Was the milk paint per instruction or is Smitty starting to influence you? :)

You made a really nice job of that Don and I think you fulfilled your wife’s brief perfectly. The milk paint was a nice touch.
