Repurpose Plate Holder

This plate holder hung in my kitchen for just over a year. In my mission to simplify and purge I realized that I had never used the plates that were being stored in the holder and decided to get rid of them. Down came the plate holder!

With our little one I knew that I would be creating a reading nook somewhere in our home and would need a way to store the books. After a fresh coat of white paint I hung it in a corner of our living room for Kellen’s book collection. I love that his books are now easily accessible for us to read to him!

  1. What a fantastic way to use that plate rack! Looks really good and, as you say, lovely that the books are now really accessible.

  2. This is a GREAT idea!! I need to find a plate holder so that I can do the same!
