Just like using a chicken trough, here is a wire file organizer plate rack, farmhouse style.
Not a moment of life is wasted on a farm. -Jim Fisher
This might very well be a duel repurpose project since using a chicken trough as a plate rack is one repurpose. Now, I’m taking an office file organizer to look like a chicken trough to then be used as a plate rack.
FILE ORGANIZER PLATE RACK
With the farmhouse trend being so popular it can make items expensive and/or hard to come by. Which is really kind of funny since most items were a way to make do in the first place.
You are then left to…
- scour to find one
- purchase a new one and DIY it to look old
- and/or see if something can be used in place of
Hmmmmmm, which will we choose?
If you are a regular here, you might have an idea which we will choose.
A thrift store wire organizer becomes a plate rack…
With just a couple of quick coats (letting it dry after each one), this is now a great farmhouse substitution.
And in true salvaged style, the plates here are from a thrift store as well.
The great thing about this project is when the trend is over, it can go back to its original purpose (or upcycled again to something altogether different).
