I was going to title this post How We Plan to Survive Living Without a Kitchen For Three Months but instead I shortened it to what it really is, the prettiest baker’s rack ever. We are starting on the kitchen remodel in the Nevada house in a few weeks (more details on that soon) which includes a total floor to ceiling demo so I came up with a solution for where to store our plates, bowls, and glassware so when we’re staying there we can eat and drink even while we are kitchenless until December.
I bought this Ceylon Baker’s Rack from Ballard Designs when it popped up on sale over the summer for two reasons 1) It was love at first sight: whitewash finish and fretwork doors! 2) It’s a versatile piece that will work anywhere, think bar in a living room, stylish display in a home office, storage in a breakfast nook, etc.
We will have a functioning refrigerator for the fall but no working appliances so we will be eating a lot of cereal and sushi and takeout while in town and paying visits down the street to my Mom and Dad’s house for hot meals. Right now the baker’s rack sits in the breakfast nook and I had some fun styling it in the space.
Many of the items shown I picked up on clearance so some aren’t available but for any pieces that still are, here are sources from top left: moroccan mosaic print / leafy seadragon watercolor / tea glasses / sushi rice bowls / glass candleholders / green rimmed glasses / utensil crock / bamboo silverware
I was lucky to snag the baker’s rack when it was on sale over the summer for $369 …
… right now it’s not on sale but I often see 15% discount coupons pop up in magazines like House Beautiful. Also watch for Ballard’s periodic furniture sales if you receive their emails or catalog in the mail.
Good news though, Ballard Designs is giving away one of their Ceylon Baker’s Racks to one of you! The lucky winner can pick which finish they want either whitewash or the teak finish. Note this piece is for use indoors or outdoors so you can use it to style a porch or patio vignette with plants, dishes, etc.
