I recently bought a new vintage-inspired industrial rack. I had really wanted a real one, but they were either out of my price range, or they were just too tall for the space. The thing is I love the mirror there. That corner is so dark and the mirror acts like another window and really brightens it up. It used to be our breakfast nook, but after a while as the kids got bigger, that space just didn’t seem to work as well anymore. No one wanted to sit on the bench, so it just held junk, and then we were short a chair all of the time. Looking back at pictures I’ve realized how much that space has gone through a lot of changes!!!
I used to have our mug rack on our kitchen island, but it took up much needed space that we used for cooking dinner.
I needed something not winder than 16 inches, not higher than 30 inches,and not longer than 49 inches. So when I found this vintage industrial cart,even though it’s a reproduction, I snatched it up! Even though it wish it was a bit longer, and I am not sold on the red yet, it was perfect for the mug rack and freed up a ton of space on the island!
I like the weathered wood on top a lot.
and I am not sold on the red crackle finish, but I can always drag it outside in the spring and either tone it down, or try another color.
The mug rack fits on there perfectly, and I realize I am a bit of a mug “hoarder”.
This is my favorite mug. No one is allowed to use it but me.
And I’ve always not been a huge fan of fake flowers, but I found these at Micheal’s this week on sale and they looked so real, I had to buy them, they looked so pretty. I love fresh flowers , but just don’t last long enough sometimes.
I think it’s a perfect fit for the spot. I am now debating on my plate wall, I am almost ready for a change up with that too.
