DIY: Wall-Mounted Plate Rack

Senior editor Morgan Michener creates a tidy wall-mounted rack that corrals platters and plates. 

DesignEd_Stock_2014_Morgan_0916-crop2_HH_AU14_11A plate rack is an easy way to boost charm and functionality in a kitchen or dining room, and can be customized to any size or color. My clean-lined version will help declutter counters, free up cabinet storage and fill an unused wall with display. And staging favorite dishes like this means they’re always there to admire — and easy to grab when needed!

This simple rack is made with easy-to-find, inexpensive lumber. I used 1″ x 5″ clear pine for the sides, 1″ x 4″ clear pine for the shelves and solid pine trim molding for the rails.
