The Prettiest Baker’s Rack

By Kate Riley September 3, 2014

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.

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.

  1. I would definitely put it outside – we are re-doing our patio and it would be perfect out there!

  2. We are building an office attached to our home and I have been looking for a piece like this to use for bottled water, snacks, etc for our guests and clients.

    I need this in my life! :-)

  3. I would love to put this to much needed use in my kitchen! I’ve had my eye on this one for soooo long but even the sale price is more than I can afford.

  4. I would actually put this in our master bathroom, we have a perfect spot and it would be super cute to display rolled towels, soaps, and cute bathroom canisters!!!! Love it!

  5. Not in the usual space. It would actually be perfect in my guest bathroom. Towels, toiletries etc.

  6. Ohhhhh Love the look! Would be oh-so-perfect and very functional on my covered porch since we eat outside every night we can! Thank you!

  7. I would love to put this on my patio to hold all the dog toys and potting supplies that are just wreaking havoc on my table out there!

  8. Oh man! This baker’s rack truly is so beautiful that I would put it in ANY room in my house ( that I spend a significant amount of time in, of course!), but it would either be put in our keeping room to store table setting items and realistically, probably some of the kids books…OR in our master bedroom with pictures and my jewelry and throws and so on!

  9. This gorgeous bakers rack would be offset my kitchen, I would style it according to seasons. It’s spectacular. It’d be great at Halloween to string spider garland around one of the tiers and then there would be endless opportunities with all the holidays to follow. I’m dreaming of the possibilities now….

  10. This would be a perfect addition to our guest bedroom… would be great for towels and a nice staging area for our guests’ odds and ends.

  11. I love this! The whole design and color scheme. I adore the whitewashed style. This piece is perfect for my tiny studio – it’s functional and beautiful! Thanks for the inspiration.

  12. I have been looking for something to fill the wall in our small dining space and this is exactly what I did not even know I even wanted. This piece is beautiful!

  13. So excited to see that the baker’s rack can be used outdoors because I need that out on my lanai by the pool!

  14. This would be beautiful in my dining room! I could store so much on it, and it is so gorgeous!

  15. I would totally use this outside on our covered patio. I almost bought a bar cart for outside the other day.

  16. Without a doubt on the screen porch in the new “downsized” home we are in the process of planning stages. It would be fabulous with the decor and I can imagine a bar, a small buffet a place to put beautiful things. Ooh! It would be perfect!!!

  17. If I was selected as a winner, I would use the Ceylon Baker’s Rack in my home as a beverage / brunch center across from my kitchen. Thank you for this opportunity to win!

  18. It would be a nice addition in so many rooms, even a bathroom. But, I would use it somewhere I could see it often, maybe the dining room. Love your very artful styling – you’ve got talent.

  19. I would use it in my kitchen. We don’t have a lot of counter space, so this would be perfect. It’s beautiful. Thanks for the chance to win! So fun!

  20. I love this and it would be a beautiful statement piece for my front porch. I have been looking for the perfect thing to decorate with, and this is it!

  21. In my entryway! I’ve been looking for the perfect piece to go there. I would paint it aqua. :)

  22. i love this baker’s rack! how beautiful! i would use this in our dining room – it would just look amazing! i love how you styled yours! :)

  23. I have so many places for this beauty! It would fit in our living room beside our fireplace, on the way to our kitchen in our dining room, or even in our Master Bathroom! The finish is just perfection!

  24. I would use it in my mom and dad’s new house for an entry display or in the dining room for kitchen item display. Love! Thanks!

  25. We have a smaller house, so pieces that are beautiful and provide good storage are awesome. This would be perfect in our dining area!

  26. I would love to use this beautiful piece in my daughter’s room for jewelry and purse display/storage!

  27. Really so many places but thinking either my patio or dining nook. Now if only I could style it exactly the same…

  28. Oh my goodness… I can’t even decide! I think it would work beautifully on my deck to serve as a bar and plant stand. BUT it’s so pretty I don’t know if I could leave it outside. I’d probably end up putting it in our basement near our bar area/family room for multi purpose storage… drinks, snacks, décor, maybe some movies stored inside some crates, and blankets for those cold movie nights.

  29. I would use it on the blank wall between my kitchen & family room, right next to the back French door. Perfect spot for a back door drop zone, storage of pool towels (lower cabinet), & seasonal displays on the upper shelves!

  30. I think it would look perfect on my back porch. We just got new patio furniture and the teak finish would look so nice with it. Love the doors.

  31. I would definitely use the bakers rack in my dining room to store and showcase my ironstone collection and linens. I love this piece!

  32. I would use it in our new-to-us house in the large walkway between kitchen and living room. Cool piece!

  33. I’d love this in my apartment as a little office station. I’d put mementos on the top shelf, papers in pretty file drawers on the second shelf, pens and other office supplies on the third, textbooks on the fourth, and the bottom would be perfect to hide my ugly printer and put a small box to store laptop/phone chargers.
    Though someday when I have my own home, I’d love to use it as a real baker’s rack! :)

  34. I would first try it in my kitchen. This is one of those pieces that would work in any room. I’m sure I could find the perfect spot for it.

  35. You’re right….it is the prettiest baker’s rack ever!! It would be perfect sitting on my screened porch!

  36. This would be wonderful in our sunroom. It would make a nice addition to our space for drinks and a serving area.

  37. I love Ballard Design products-they are such high quality. I could definitely see this in my front entry way, styled for each season…Christmas decor in the whitewash finish…divine!

  38. Love this piece! It would be perfect in either our dining room or outdoors. Can’t quite decide yet :)

  39. This would look perfect in between my dinning room and living room, so pretty in white. Would go perfect with my house.

  40. Both finishes are lovely! Given the chance, I would definetely use it in our bathroom, storing towels and my vintage soap collections!

  41. I would love to win this beautiful piece and give it to our son who is buying a house that is somewhat short on counter/storage space. Fingers crossed for him!

  42. I would use this in my living room to hide ugly tv components in the bottom and to display pretty accessories on the shelves. Love this!

  43. This would look fantastic in our dining room! I’d choose the whitewashed piece… it would really pop against our navy walls.

  44. I love this piece of furniture! One spot where I could use it is in my bedroom…I could picture jewelry, sweaters etc.

    Thanks for the great giveaway!

  45. I would use it in my dining room – I have an odd jumble of furniture in there now and this would be gorgeous!

  46. Wow…what a great piece. I’d use it in my master bedroom. We have a weird little nook that this would fill up perfectly!

  47. The whitewash finish would look beautiful in my black and white ensuite – I can see it styled with plush white towels, an apothecary jar of soap, a glossy black vase…. Wonderful!

  48. In my dining room. Once we finish remodeling and get our king bed out of there it would look great!

  49. So pretty! I would use it in my upstairs hallway for storage of extra linens, candles and all sorts of miscellaneous items.

  50. I’d probably use this beautiful piece in my kitchen, but there’s a spot in my home office I’d like to try it in too!

  51. Such a pretty baker’s rack! I’ve been wanting some kind of shelf to put near our dining table, so it would probably go there. P.S. – Love the blue & green styling you did on yours!

  52. So pretty! I’m torn: should it live in our dining area or would it work better in our bedroom? It would certainly be at home here!

  53. Oh my gosh, I adore it! We are about to close on our first house, and it has the perfect spot for a piece like this- in a dining room that we are styling very informally.

  54. I absolutely love this and would put it in my kitchen. Lots of great storage and love the cabinets doors on the bottom. This could come in extremely handy.

  55. I would use the white finish in my new home office. It would help tremendously with storage as I get my new business up and running. :)

  56. Our patio is a total eyesore and I desperately want to give it a makeover. This would be perfect out there!

  57. They are both gorgeous. I think I would have to use it in our family room which is open to our dining room and kitchen. It would provide some much needed storage for our family as well as display space. Love it!

  58. I’d use it in my dining room – I’ve been thinking about something to display our pretty china.

  59. Thanks for the chance to win this beautiful piece! I would put it outside on our covered patio.

  60. I am in the midst of a kitchen reno too (thankfully not a 3 month job!) and this would fit perfectly there once the work is done!

  61. If I was lucky I would choose the white washed finish and use it in our master bath. Thanks for the chance!

  62. I might use it in my dining room, but I have to admit I love the idea of using it outdoors as well!

  63. I would love to have this for my dining room or my kitchen! Both have ZERO storage (we are using an old, 1980s, orange oak dresser in the kitchen right now that, while better than nothing, is really not ideal at all. This is great!!!

  64. What a beautiful multi-purpose piece of furniture. I would place it in the half bath where storage is limited. It would add so much style to that nondescript room.

  65. It would look very pretty either in the family room or on the deck. Thank you for sharing.

  66. I would use the Ceylon baker’s rack in brown as a bookcase in my home office. The size is perfect and an unique form of storage for my favorite books, incoming and outgoing mail bin, baskets and other manuals organized for household documents. Thank you for sharing your ideas with us.

  67. I could use such a versatile piece in so many places, but most likely in my kitchen or living room.

  68. I would use it in the kitchen (if it fits) or my bedroom. I prefer the white one. Thank you for the great giveaway!

    PS just checked dimensions by clicking on your link, won’t fit in kitchen, so would use it in bedroom or on porch. Actually thinking I might prefer teak. Well it’s nice to dream anyway.

  69. I love this piece of furniture and see it in my sunroom with beautiful succulents gracing its shelves. Please let me win!

  70. I would love it in my kitchen for cookbooks, a crock with wooden spoons, a cute crate with dish clothes, perfect for additional storage and to keep often used items in reach!

  71. i JUST told my husband that we needed a tall piece of furniture for a corner of our family room. this would be wonderful. here’s hoping that we win it.
    thanks for the giveaway.

  72. I would definitely use it outside on our patio for plants and pretties. We just moved and had our patio redone in bluestone. Now, it needs some outside décor so we can use it and enjoy it. This is so lovely…really hope that I win. Thanks.

  73. I have been searching for a furniture piece to provide storage in our soon to be remodeled master bath. The Ceylon Baker’s Rack from Ballard Designs would be perfect!

  74. I lust over pretty much every item on the pages of the Ballards catalog. This would be absolute perfection in our home office or our kitchen! I’m a bit giddy just thinking of the possibilities!!

  75. I would use the teak finish piece in my open floor plan dining/living room to store pretty barware,vases, etc!

  76. My husband and I are getting ready to redo our home office – or the sad sad corner that we are currently referring to as an office. Since I will use this space more, I think I deserve some feminine touches, like this piece! I might even get a second to make a real statement and fill a full wall. The price makes it possible!

  77. It’s such a gorgeous piece and I would put it in my kitchen/dining area. I live in a small apartment with not much kitchen storage, so it would be a perfect addition to my “dining area” to hold my favorite plates, cute jars filled with baking supplies, my cookbooks (which I haven’t found a good spot for so far) and other little decor and kitchen goodies! The white washed one goes with my decor best and it would be well loved and used in our little apartment home! Thanks for the giveaway! And I love what you did with yours!!! XX

  78. I think I would probably use it in our formal living room, although our recently finished sunroom would also be a possibility. I love the fact that it’s so versatile and that the depth is only 18 inches!

  79. We are currently building our first home (eeek excitement!) and this bakers rack would be BEAUTIFUL in our eat-in kitchen! It would give us plenty of space to show off my cake stand collection, as well as my colorful collection of Fiesta plates.

  80. What a lovely piece! I was going to say I’d put it in the kitchen but I now think it would be perfect for the office/ homework area! Must.have.baker’s.rack!!

  81. I would use this in the breakfast nook of our kitchen, or the patio… So hard to decide! Our old baker’s rack didn’t survive our last move and I’ve actually been looking into a new one! This would be perfect in the white!

  82. I’ve been eyeing this piece for a while. I think I would put it in our formal dining room turned office for some much needed storage/display space. Thanks for the opportunity.

  83. I recently turned a small space off our master bedroom into my “girls only” craft room. Would love it to store baskets with fabrics, ribbons ect. It would be a fabulous addition!

  84. I love this!!! I world definitely use it in my dining room to display some cups and dishes!

  85. I would lovee this for my daughter’s room. She needs a piece just like this. Thank you so much for the chance!

  86. Love it! Would use it either right outside my (tiny) kitchen for kitchen storage, or in my living/all purpose room for office/sewing/knitting/etc storage.

  87. I would purchase one or two more and use them as a “wall unit” in my office for craft, office, and sewing supplies.

  88. I would use the Ballard ceylon bakers rack in my diningroom. I would use it as a “Bar Nook” . I would display various wine glasses and goblets, beer glasses, decanters, linens, and other acutroments. It would also be fabulous for displaying various pottery pieces, and of course wine bottles! I love Ballard Designs!! I actually drove to their outlet store in mason, ohio from northern Illinois in August. I had to make a stop there. It was actually a detour on our way to the W&S Cinncinati Tennis Open.

  89. Love the white one! You have styled yours so beautifully, who wouldn’t want one! I have the perfect spot in my dining room for this piece, thanks for the giveaway!

  90. deeeeeefinitely could use some extra storage in my kitchen! I live in a tiny 1940’s cottage and apparently back then folks didn’t have a lot of stuff to put in the kitchen! There’s a total of 5 cabinets, not counting the ones right under the sink. Not much room to store food and dishes – really there’s just room for one or the other, so a lot of stuff is out in plain sight! It would be super helpful to have a pretty piece like that to store my dishes so I could actually put my food away! :) I absolutely love the whitewash finish. Really love how you’ve styled yours!!

  91. Beautiful piece! I’d love the white finish in my laundry room. It’s begging for an awesome piece of furniture :)

  92. I would use this in my current dining room, but since we’re selling our house, I love the fact that it could be used in so many different ways!

  93. I will like to use it in my daughters room and would place it on the walls on either side of the windows. This would be a good alternative for a bookcase. The top portion can work as a bookcase and the lower portion can store her toys.

  94. On our front balcony between the two windows. …still saving for the remodeling of the front of our house come next spring but I am collecting pieces now…the fretwork would go great with bamboo dining set from craigslist!

  95. My bedroom which I’m redoing right now. I’d use it as bookcase/storage for jewelry box/change of sheets, pictures, books, pretty things. Love Ballard Designs!!!

  96. I am already in love with it. This beautiful rack would make my sitting room amazing, I would use it as a bar. Nice liquors and stemware

  97. I would use this in the entryway of my apartment right next to my kitchen and it would be the perfect rustic piece to a new apartment!

  98. I love the white one! This would work so well in my dining/living room open space to store wine bottles, glasses, extra table linens and everything else that we accumulate as a family.

  99. I would use this in my kitchen for my microwave and storage due to lack of counter space. It’s gorgeous! I love the white.

  100. in my dining room, where we really need storage space for all sorts of things and currently have none! The teak finish is gorgeous!

  101. It would make a beautiful addition to my home office. Fresh flowers, interior design books, my new Bargello-inspired tray.

  102. It would go in the dining room and beautify all our everyday plates and glasses! Both finishes are sooo pretty!

  103. My roommates and I would love to replace our old ikea bookcase with this beautiful bakers rack!

  104. I would use it in our basement family room for storage and as a serving rack. i love both finishes!
    Thank you!

  105. Our kitchen really needs this!! We seriously lack storage space. Especially some beautiful storage that this would provide!! I’d love it in white!

  106. Such a gorgeous piece. For now, I have the perfect blank wall in my Kitchen for it. Someday, I’m going to be putting a door to the garden in that spot, so when that happens, I’ll move it in my new master bath, which by then will also be renovated with a space designed for a rack just like this. I’ve always wanted an open rack to store towels and pretty bath accessories. This is perfect.

  107. I love Ballard Designs and have a few of their pieces. Everything I have ordered from there has been great quality. This Ceylon Baker’s Rack in the whitewash color would look great in our guest bedroom wiith books, decorative items and and place for guests to place their keys, phones etc. The room is not very big so I like the idea of the 18″ depth. Thanks for the opportunity.

  108. Definitely my living room – yes, my dining room – or perhaps the kitchen – sooo many places I could put one ( or three)!

  109. We have been blessed with a lake home which we open to guests as often as possible. I would use this Ceylon Baker’s Rack by the back door to hold supplies to enhance our guests enjoyment. Summertime-beach towels, tubs of sunscreen, flip flops, goggles, water toys, etc. Fall-warm throws and s’more making kits to use around the fire pit. Christmas time-can you ever have enough places for Christmas displays? Springtime-flowers, gardening hand tools, board games, and binoculars to watch the returning birds. It would certainly get lots of use throughout the year.

  110. I would put it in my kitchen area. It’s a very small galley-style kitchen but I have a large eat-in area. I could really use the extra storage and I love this! Thanks!

  111. I’d use the white one on my newly painted sunporch for drinks and snacks. We just had a party and it would have been the perfect addition! Thanks!

  112. I would love to put the white washed bakers rack out on my deck. There’s still enough warm weather to enjoy it where I live.

  113. I think this piece of furniture would look great in my daughters room to display her keepsakes and store a few toys! The possibilities are endless. So cute!!!

  114. It really is the prettiest I’ve seen! I would put it in my kitchen or family room where we could use it and enjoy it everyday!

  115. I would use this bakers rack as you enter into our bathroom off of our master bedroom. There is not closet in the bathroom and I need a place to store towels and other linens. I would roll the linens and put out a few of my favorite handblown glass bowls. There is a window nearby and it would catch and filter the light just perfectly!

  116. I would for sure use it on my screen porch. Perfect place to store outside pretties and use it to serve food from also!

  117. This piece is gorgeous!
    I have two places in mind- my kitchen or my deck. This piece is beautiful on the eyes and the perfect entertaining helper.

  118. i would put in my joint home office/sitting room! it is such a versatile piece! pretty and functional!

  119. The answer is plentiful…I could use it in many place….love the whitewask for the kitchen or Living room…teak for the back porch or family room…hmmm a bookshelf? the list is endless!

  120. Hi! This piece is awesome. I have a 200 year old + Victorian and I have so many places it would look fab. Mostly I am thinking upstairs bathroom with blue towels and spa accessories.
    Thanks so much. Andrea

  121. I would put the whitewashed rack on my screened in porch to serve drinks and food. It is gorgeous and just what I am looking for! It fits the space perfectly.

  122. I would use it in the dining room…maybe set up a bar? & store all of my white dishes. Here’s hoping :)

  123. I love it! I would use it inside in either our family room or breakfast nook…either space would welcome it! Love how you styled it, too.

  124. hard question! I’d love it in my kitchen, but then it’d look great on my covered porch. Would have to play with it for a while.

  125. Nice versatile bakers rack! I would use it in my laundry room or in my dressing room/closet! Nice of you to host such a fun giveaway! Thanks!

  126. What a beautiful piece! I think I would use it in my dining room for som added vertical storage.

  127. What a pretty piece! I have the perfect spot for it in my dining room, just across from the table – I think it would fit perfectly. Thanks for the opportunity to enter!

  128. Oh my — the baker’s rack really is so versatile! Like you, we are re-doing a home and could really use a piece of furniture to follow us room to room to organize as we work! It would be our workhorse throughout this project!! Would love this baker’s rack in my life right now!

  129. I Love it !! I would use it on my patio — have been looking for just the right thing to add a little style :) This would be perfect in white… Love the fretwork doors too!

  130. Definitely a dining room piece for me….we could finally ditch the world’s ugliest china cabinet!

  131. I adore Ballards Design! I would put it in our screened porch as we are redoing it and the backyard. So hoping to host a dinner party outside and that would be perfect! Love your blog

  132. In my dining area. I need some storage in there and this is perfect. Might have to have 2.

  133. Ooooh. Was surprised and inspired by the indoor/outdoor element of the piece. Am looking forward to finishing up a new screened in porch off of our master bedroom this month and this would be an ideal addition to that space.

  134. The Ceylon Baker Rack in white would fit perfectly next to my kitchen table. I would display my second set of glassware & table top items which are both functional as well as beautiful. A gal always welcomes a pretty piece of furniture to show off a collection of things which reflects what she loves and how she lives.

  135. We are currently preparing a baby room and I could see using this as a bookcase to display all the cute stuffed animals, toys in baskets, and of course books!

  136. Would be perfect in teak in my son’s living room on the coast. I’ve been looking for something to fill a blank wall.

  137. Love Ballard and love this Baker’s Rack!! I would definitely use this piece on our covered porch. We were forced to retile the porch this summer and look forward to enjoying our time outside this fall. The Baker’s Rack would look incredible out there!

  138. Love this gorgeous baker’s rack and how you styled it! I would put this in my dining room or on our patio in the summer.

  139. Pretty piece that I could use in either my breakfast nook or on the back covered patio!

  140. Love this!! I would love to put it in my kitchen as a coffee bar. Or I could put it in my sister-in-laws nursery for her new baby. It’s such a beautiful, versatile piece!!

  141. I don’t know exactly where I would put it but I would make the room for it!
    Maybe my diningroom or kitchen…maybe my daughter’s room!
    Love it!

  142. I love, love, love this piece! I would use it in a niche in my kitchen! The whitewash would look amazing against my blue gray paint! Thanks!

  143. So,so pretty! I would use this piece in my office, stacked with all kinds of pretties :)
    Thanks for the opportunity!


  144. I would use this piece in my living room. Perfect for photo books, with lots of shelves for displaying!

  145. I really like this – I would probably use this at my parents beach house – unless I can find a place for it in my house!

  146. In our recently purchased vacation home in Florida, in the great room. Love the teak finish.

  147. Good morning!

    That baker’s rack would look lovely at my cottage in the kitchen!

    It’s lovely,

  148. Love this baker’s rack. It would work in so many places. Right now, I can picture it in the foyer or master bathroom.

  149. She belongs on my new covered deck!!! Have been looking for a piece and the measurements on this one are perfect. Whitewashed, fingers crossed.

  150. I have 3 places in mind already! 1) my bedroom, 2) the dining room, & 3) our back covered patio! Great piece.

  151. On my master bedroom covered deck since I have been looking for something to store my mini coffee maker, bottled water, etc. for those beautiful mornings when I have the time to have a cup of coffee outside on the deck. Absolutely perfect and so much storage space!

  152. I would use the bakers rack in our patio cabana. I love this bakers rack and I love Ballard Designs and I love Centsational Girl!! Thanks for sharing such a generous giveaway.

  153. I would love this in my office / sewing room to display all my fabrics. The white would be perfect for that space!

  154. This would be a wonderful piece on our Summer patio and/or a Family Room storage storage. An absolute year round winner!

  155. We just moved into our new apartment and could use a pretty place to store our extra dishes and servingware (they’re currently on a shelf from my husbands bachelor pad) :)

  156. I would love to place this is our loggia, next to the barbecue, to be used as a prep station for food, wine bar for parties, and storage for dinnerware and linens. Would be great to decorate for holidays as well.

  157. Love this piece especially the white that you chose to use. I agree with you that it would make a great bar. This is how I would this great piece.

  158. I love both colors. White for the bathroom; with towels, soaps, etc. Teak for the porch; glasses, plates and bar equipment.

  159. I would use it outside for the summertime and move it inside to my dining room for the rest of the year! What a pretty, functional piece!

  160. This would look great on my covered patio for entertaining! What a beautiful price of furniture!!

  161. I think I’d use it in our upstairs hallway. I’ve been looking for something to fill a nook and hadn’t even considered a bakers rack. It’s a great piece!

  162. The bakers rack would be ideal in a small studio apartment in lieu of traditional kitchen cabinetry. It would keep the small space open and airy and I encumbered by heavy cabinets. In addition, the display of favorite, colorful kitchenware provides a “life as art” approach to living in a small space!

  163. I think I’d use it in the dining room! I don’t have anything in there right now, and this would be perfect.

  164. I really like it and agree that it could be used anywhere. I would style it in my combined living/dining room for some extra pretty storage!

  165. Definitely would use in my Dining Room which is also serving as an office so extra storage for office items would be great.

  166. I’d use it to finally carve out a little craft/sewing nook for myself. With the right baskets and containers, it would look stunning in my home.

  167. I could use this in my dining nook….and i’d add mirrors behind the doors and on the sides of the cabinet portion for a little more bling and junk concealment.

    I hope i win. :)

  168. I would use it in my dining room to hold serving dishes and linens and probably use it partly as a bar area too. So pretty!

  169. This is the most adorable plant stand!! I would MOST DEFINITELY use this on my screened-in porch. My husband and I just moved into our first house and haven’t quite gotten to styling our porch yet :)

  170. I love the fretwork detail. I think in white it would be a great piece for my daughter’s room. We are going to be transforming her room now that she is 5 into a big girl space that will hopefully last for years. This piece would add beautiful storage and make it feel more grown up. However , I am loving the teak option and would love it in our main living area. Hop I get to make the difficult choice. ;)

  171. Let’s see, the kitchen, no wait the family room, no maybe my office, oh, or the deck. I think it will be moving around with the seasons!

  172. I would use this GORgeous piece in my dining room and it would be great in the office as well. Thank you for such a generous giveaway!

  173. As a stand in for kitchen cabinets while we gut and reno the main floor and then a place of pride in the dining room

  174. Love this piece in the white for my home office, styled with pretty artwork, books and boxes hiding office supplies. Thank you for the opportunity to enter the giveaway.

  175. I would totally put this in our living room because this is such a beautiful piece and I can just picture it decked out with coral and nautilus shells.

  176. I’ve been looking for something to use as a bar and serving for my patio. I think I found it!

  177. Wow! what a beautiful piece of furniture! I could use it in the dining nook, or in the entry! Or even our master bath! :D

  178. Gorgeous design! I would use it on our screened back porch — it functions as another living area of the house, and that rack would fit in perfectly.

  179. This is a beautiful piece! I would put it in my beach condo and pile it with white dishes. Thanks for the chance to win it!

  180. I’d use it in my kitchen as I’m currently doing a mini re-do…I’d store my china and other pretties in it.

  181. Nicest baker’s rack I’ve ever seen. I would use it in our dining room or maybe the master bathroom.

  182. My kids’ newly renovated bathroom! We removed a huge ugly cabinet (think ’80’s kitchen cabinet from floor to ceiling) next to the toilet and I’ve been looking for a etagere piece to no avail. The whitewash piece would be perfect, especially over the herringbone marble tile floor.

  183. The teak in my backyard to dress up with plants and use as an outdoor bar with island style!

  184. I would love to have this piece in my breakfast nook. I agree it is The Prettiest Baker’s Rack Ever!!!
    Keeping my fingers crossed!

  185. I would use it in the kitchen. BEAUTIFUL!!! Is that a piece of polish pottery on the second shelf up (sitting on the right side of the cutting board)? I’m a huge polish pottery collector and was surprised to see it for the first time in one of your posts – seeing how much you love the color blue! (Polish pottery is mostly in blue tones.)

  186. I have a wall in my kitchen that currently has a refurbished dresser and shelves …THIS would be a dramatic update for that space!

  187. I would use this piece in my dining/kitchen area. During a large he together I could also use it on the patio to extend our serving area.

  188. Oh, it would be such a fun wedding gift for my daughter as it would beautify an otherwise nondescript apartment!

  189. One bedroom of our home is our “cat room”. The bakers rack would be ideal for storing the extra sand in the bottom shelf behind closed doors and the upper shelving for towels, clippers, brushes, kibble, snacks and of course, photos of Milo and Omar!

  190. I would use that beautiful rack in my dining room for sure. It is really a versatile piece though, it could go at least two other places in my home!

  191. It would be a resident on my deck or in my kitchen. So very pretty! I’d choose the teak finish.

  192. It would be perfect in whitewash in my formal living room styled perfectly as a bar filled with pretty glasses, accessories, bar cookbooks and blue-toned entertaining pieces.

  193. The whitewash would be perfect as a book shelf and display in my master bedroom–been searching for a while for just the right piece—decorative and functional !!!

  194. This gorgeous rack would replace the one we have currently, a scrolly iron piece, that we found on the side of the road about 10 years ago. It has served us well, but this one would look so much better! I’m afraid I would want to sleep in the kitchen just to look at it :)

  195. A baker’s rack has been something I have been on the hunt for and I have the perfect place for it in my kitchen.

  196. In my dining area…I recently decided I need something tall to balance out my off centered and unsightly light fixture since changing it out isn’t an option!

  197. This would look great in our dining room or our family room. No idea how I missed this piece, its fab.

  198. I’d place it in my daughter’s bedroom for book, etc. storage. The space below would be used for her cozy sweaters and cardigans. It’s lovely!

  199. I have an open concept main floor so it would go in the family room/dining room area and would be great to store and showcase some of our collected treasures from travelling.

  200. Absolutely love Ballard! I would put the white rack in my breakfast nook and the stained rack would go in my screened-in porch. :-)

  201. Dining room for me! But I could picture in my hallway, bathroom and on my deck! One for every space!

  202. What a gorgeous piece! And you styled it to perfection. I’d love to use this in our sunroom.

  203. I have the perfect spot i’ve been looking for something like this for in my living room. But it would also work great for some MUCH needed pretty storage in my office/craft room!

  204. I am a fan of Ballards but must admit I’d never seen that piece. It is gorgeous. I would use it in my newly remodeled breakfast room, since the remodel went over budget and I’ve got no $ left for furniture!

  205. Oh my goodness, I love this piece. You styled it so beautifully! I would love this bakers rack in my screened-in porch.

  206. Oh my gosh, that piece is perfect for my sunroom/office/dining room–it’s a very multi-funcitonal room.

  207. Not sure where in my current home, but we are hoping to purchase a larger home soon. It’s just so gorgeous, I know I’d find a spot.

  208. I would love to incorporate all of my cacti collection that I bring indoors every Minnesota winter. This would be the perfect rack! I would also store my large platters on the bottom behind the doors! Would fit wonderfully with my white kitchen cupboards!!

  209. I love it! It would look great on my new patio. I can see Thanksgiving dishes and display on it. Must have it!

  210. This would definitely go into my kitchen. I’ve always wanted a baker’s rack and have the perfect place for it. Such a pretty piece of furniture!

  211. I would use the baker’s rack in either my kitchen or possibly in my bedroom. What a beautiful piece!

  212. I would love two white washed ones on either side of my fireplace in my coastal inspired home. Love love love Ballard Designs!

  213. Love this piece – hard to decide between the 2 finishes, the are both GORGEOUS! I would keep mine in the backyard – I love teak furniture in the yard! :)

  214. Beautiful piece! We are redecorating our master bathroom and this would make a gorgeous display for our towels, washcloths, glass jars for cotton balls and pretty soaps. And I would add bath salts and candles for my own little spa display. Heavenly…

  215. I think I’ll use the Ceylon Baker’s Rack in my bathroom. Love the withe finish. Very airy yet substancial.

  216. I would put this in my kitchen. I just moved into a brand new home (new contraction) and I hardly have any furniture. This speaks to me and would look great with my 10 foot ceilings!

  217. I’ve been watching for end of season sales to fancy up our covered deck. It is in such need of some pretty. Would LOVE to have this piece in white to go with my painted table and chairs.

  218. I would use the white-washed finish on my screened-in porch. It would be wonderful to have the extra storage and serving area. Love Ballard! Thank you for the wonderful opportunity.

  219. Oh I love this! It would be the perfect addition to our dining room. I need something open to store glasses & platters, & has such a unique look!

  220. I would use this rack in our new house. We have a lovely sun room / breakfast room that is huge and I have no furniture for yet (and no budget this year to buy furniture). I am hoping to do a mixture of French provincial and farmhouse in that room, and this shelf in white washed would be a lovely baker’s rack / buffet space as well as charming spot for the regularly used dishes. I’ve been searching for something JUST like it!

  221. I need a Piece of furniture in my living area, so i would start there! Thanks for the giveaway!

  222. Oh, pick me, pick me. We just bought a cottage with a tiny kitchen and NEED storage. Can’t you just picture this bakers rack filled with lovely white dishes and a few pops of color! PICK ME, PICK ME!

  223. We’re building a new home this fall! It would look PERFECT in our formal dining room PLEASEE!

  224. I would love to put the whitewashed piece in my home office. It would be a great compliment to my existing furniture and such a beautiful place for display.

  225. I love this bakers rack!! I would put it on the new deck that my husband finally finished building after 6 months. It’s truly a labor of love and this rack would look fantastic out there!

  226. I love that this could be used indoors or outdoors! We are remodeling our back patio and this would be perfect! I have my eye on some other lovelies from Ballard for our remodel too!

  227. ill be moving out of my parents house soon and would love to use this in my new apartment as a sort of bar cart!

  228. So beautiful and such a versatile piece of furniture! I would enjoy it in my kitchen to replace a two drawer chest I have been using for storage. Like many of the others have stated, it could be used anywhere with great success! LOVE your blog! Thank you!

  229. Really pretty – I have a room in my upstairs that it would be perfect in – not a kitchen but a library/study type room and I think this would fit the bill for books and decorations there.

  230. I just completed an outdoor kitchen and this would be the perfect finishing touch to this space. Great storage and would coordinate beautifully with everything I already have in place.

  231. I love that piece. So gorgeous! Like you said it would work great in a number of rooms. I was thinking about using it in the bathroom to hold lots of fluffy towels and extra toiletries. Of course I would also have to add a few pretty accessories too.

  232. This is the prettiest bakers rack I’ve ever come across. I would love this piece in our open concept kitchen/dining room. It would make the perfect wine bar. So pretty. Thanks for sharing.

  233. I would use it in my dining room. I have no buffet or sideboard there, so it would be perfect to store larger serving pieces, glassware, and beverages for parties.

  234. I’d love to have this in my sun room. With three walls of windows, the white would give me a chance to add some color and interesting objects.

  235. Gosh – what a cute piece. It would be perfect in the carriage house we’re in the process of remodeling . . . .

  236. The first place I would use it would be in our outdoor room to use as a temporary bar. Perfect! And when it becomes cold here, I would bring it inside to use in my hallway for my indoor plants and for a place to use for storing scarfs, gloves and whatnots. Of course, I would have baskets and bins to help with the sorting! Love this rack!

  237. I have the perfect wall for this in our kitchen! Beautiful!! Thanks so much for the opportunity to win!

  238. I would love to have the white washed version to use as a bar area in my kitchen. This piece is absolutely lovely.

  239. For sure this would look great in my kitchen. I love how you’ve placed drinks and glasses and serving ware on it!

  240. We are about to embark on a kitchen renovation and I am looking for a piece exactly like this to hold my jars of bulk foods! I didn’t think about Ballard Designs, but I am heading to their website now!

  241. I use Baker’s racks all around my house and this one would be beautiful in my dining room.


  242. We just bought a house and haven’t even moved in yet! This would go perfectly with the kitchen cabinets. Gotta love more storage…AND it’s beautiful.

  243. What a fabulous piece! I would love the white color in my eat in kitchen to replace my tired buffet!

  244. Love this piece – agree that there would be many uses for it – but it would start out in our dining room as a bar

  245. My oldest daughter graduated from our local community college and planned to transfer to a school in another state, so the changes she wanted for her bedroom were put on hold. Instead, I redecorated my youngest daughter’s room, which turned out great. Well, as luck would have it, the financial aid my oldest needed didn’t come through the way we needed, so she’s back home working on a new plan for school. I now feel compelled to finish her room. This piece would be perfect for her small space and her eclectic design sense. We’re leaning towards a Victorian Steam punk theme and I could see this filled with books and oddities!

  246. I would love this amazing baker’s rack in my sewing room! Perfect to display all that fabric and notions that are too beautiful to kept in the closet! I love the white!

  247. Gorgeous! I would love to put the whitewash baker’s rack in my kitchen!
    Thanks for the great giveaway!

  248. Wow! What a wonderful giveaway! I LOVE this versatile piece of furniture! Most likely,I would use it in my dining room! But, it would also look lovely in our master bath with toweling and accessories!! I love both finishes, but would chose the whitewash as my fav! :) Thanks for a chance to win!!

  249. I would love this piece in the teak finish because it would be so timeless and I could use it on our covered porch to store so many things. Great find!

  250. The Ceylon Baker’s rack from Ballard Designs would be snazzy in my aqua guest room– outfitted with a few amenities for overnight guests, leaving open space for their belongings

  251. Beautiful piece!!! This would be perfect in our covered outdoor patio area – would get year round use here in Florida! :-)

  252. Love the idea of the teak version of this beautiful rack to add perfect dimension and utility to the space between two kitchen windows on our pool lanai. Perfect for anchoring pool party necessities!

  253. We just moved in to our first home and we have a dining room wall that is just begging for this!

  254. I have actually been looking for the perfect bakers rack for at least a year now. I would place it in an awkward to fill corner in my kitchen between a window and the (tiny) wall that separates the living room. This would be perfect!

  255. I would put this beautiful bakers rack on my screened in porch! I love the fact it can be used in an semi-outside location. Just beautiful!!

  256. This would be the perfect addition to our backyard outdoor space. We’re just getting started on this area of the house and I think this would be a great place to start.

  257. I would use it in my newly renovated dining room! I’ve been looking for the perfect credenza and never thought to incorporate a baker’s rack. Normally they’re very country looking, but this one is much more modern. Love it!

  258. I would put it near my kitchen and turn it into a coffee station for my husband. His addiction to fancy coffee has left me wanting for extra counter space since his machine/coffee grinder take up so much space. This would be perfect! Thanks!

  259. This is such a pretty piece! So very much your style. I would love to have one of these, we are remodeling our deck soon and it would be the perfect addition!

  260. This beautiful piece will look great in the small dining room of the little cottage home my husband and I are remodeling (and hope to move into soon). It is very versatile piece so we could also use it in our kitchen, patio, or bedroom – love it!

  261. HOLY.PERFECT.TIMING!! I have been searching high and low for a piece this size and style too for my hall library nook/book shelving! How I love your style and this piece is perfection for my space!! I love the whitewash color too! So thanks for the awesome give away! :)

  262. I would love to use this in my soon to be personal exercise/craft room. I want it pretty and practical and the bakers rack would be perfect to hold both items for it’s purpose (think bottles of water, towels and a basket with thread, scissors, etc.

  263. I would love to put this close to the bar in our newly finished basement…or on the deck, I can’t decide!

  264. Perfect timing here too! I’d put it in my bathroom! I was just getting ready to hang some shelves, because I didn’t want to spend the money on a piece like this.

    It would be perfect!

  265. OMG I LOVE this piece!!! I could use it in so many different areas of my home: bedroom, office, or family room where I dead space in between my laundry room door and sliding glass doors to the deck. Right now the dead space has nothing but my doggie’s bowls. It would be a great place for some books, pictures, and some plants. What a great idea!! Thanks!

  266. This piece is gorgeous! I have wanted to upgrade my dining room storage and this would fit in the space perfectly. It’s interesting and beautiful but not overly fussy looking which is just what I’m looking for

  267. I am currently adding on a bigger diningroom to our house and this would be gorgeous in my new room!

  268. I love everything Ballard has and this piece is no exception. I would use the whitewashed piece in my dining room.

  269. I’ve been dying for a piece of furniture to store extra items from our small-ish kitchen. There’s a perfect wall between the kitchen and glass doors to the backyard where this would go fabulously! Ah! I hope I win!

  270. This is beautiful! We moved into our first house this summer, and I really need some more storage between my living and dining rooms. This would be perfect!!

  271. Teak for me please! I would actually use this in our living room. We just moved into a 1960’s ranch & have this big, empty alcove next to the fireplace in the formal living room that is crying out for a shelving/display piece!

  272. On the deck! I’ve been looking for a piece like this to store our outdoor dining/grilling stuff and this is perfect! Not eve sure if I’d get teak or white…..

  273. Love this beautiful bakers rack! There are so many spaces in my home where this would work perfectly – but I would use it in the upstairs landing for linen/blanket storage and display photos, books, and art on the upper shelves. Add a cozy chair next to it and it would make a cozy reading spot.

  274. It’d be hard to choose which finish as they’re both lovely – I think I’d put it on my patio!

  275. I would use it in my newly renovated kitchen, there is one wall left, and it would be perfect!

  276. Although Im obsessed with baker’s racks and would have a hard time parting with this beauty, I would give this to my son and his fiancé for a wedding present. I believe they’d choose the teak finish. They would love this for their new home…in or outdoors. Hmmm…then there’s my other newly married son with his new home and patio. I suppose I’d need to purchase one for them!

  277. I would use it in my kitchen! I love this design and it is so hard to find a white baker’s rack!!

  278. That rack is absolutely beautiful and I love the way you styled it. I am torn about where I would use it because it’s such a versatile piece. I can imagine it blending in very well in my dining room which matches the wainscoting. I would also work well in my family room which has white wood paneling and lastly it would add a nice addition to my living room and could be used as a beverage bar. Decisions, decisions, I hope I win it!

  279. I love this piece! The natural finish would be the perfect addition to our new outdoor living space;)

  280. I would love to use the white wash finish in my dining room, will be replacing it with my hutch.

  281. Ho-ly crap! I love this rack. I would use it in my dining room as a stylish place to keep my cocktail-wares. :) GREAT GIVEAWAY!

  282. We just remodeled our kitchen and before I even knew this was a giveaway, I thought the white one would be perfect in my kitchen near my french doors.

  283. I’d actually use the white finish in my living room to replace an old ladder style bookcase I’ve had since right after college!

  284. Crazy, I know. I would use it in my washroom. Love the idea of beachy accents, rolled towels and lovely potions etc.

  285. we really want to redo our dining room furniture to update our room, this would be the perfect starting piece to get the project rolling :) what an amazing piece, its a totally updated take on bakers rack, love it!!!! it could almost go any where

  286. I would use on the wall right outside our kitchen to hold servicing pieces and other pretty dishes that don’t fit in my tiny kitchen!

  287. What a gorgeous piece! There are a few places I could use the teak one — in the dining room, foyer, or even the guest room. Decisions, decisions!

  288. I can see how this piece caught your eye. It is really versatile and so attractive. I would like to use in my office between two desks and in front of a long window. It would be beautiful to show off books and potted plants etc. Since my desks are both dark wood the white fininsh would be a smart contrast. Thanks for an opportunity to win!

  289. So pretty! In a heartbeat, I would use this in our master bathroom – – have the blank wall ready for it! It would look lovely with beautiful jars of soap, neatly folded towels and pretty decorative pieces in turquoise.

  290. Call me crazy, but I would use it in the alcove of our loooooooooooong hallway to help break up what seems like a bowling alley with bedrooms off it. Since it is down by where all of the kids bedrooms are located, I would use it to store childrens games, books and showcase their artwork. And since their arwork is to brightly colored, I would lean towards the white finish version.

    Dawn in Sac

  291. My daughter is moving to a larger home, so she has a lot of bare walls to fill, and I think this rack would look beautiful anywhere. Or maybe I’ll keep it for me!

  292. In the big gap in my living/ dining room! I’ve been searching for more storage for two years!

  293. I love the white one! I would actually use it in my guest bathroom to store towels and other bathroom necessities!

  294. I would use it in our kitchen! I think it’s be perfect to show off some of my vintage Pyrex! =)

  295. I would use it in the guestroom, to have books, water, glasses, and a clock. I would store extra blankets in the bottom and leave space on the top for the guests to put their laptop or iPad. I love both but maybe the teak will be more timeless?

  296. This beautiful piece would be perfect for my patio! We live at the beach so we dine on the patio most of the year, what a beautiful addition this would be!

  297. We have a sunporch that would be great for this piece, but I also think it would be fabulous in a bathroom with pretty white towels and cute accessories!

  298. Oh, this would look beautiful in my kitchen/family room beside the patio door. I have been looking for something for this spot for awhile! It would be visible from the foyer and the perfect place to display some pretties!

  299. I have the perfect spot for the whitewashed version in my dining room. It would be a nice contrast to my darker table. I actually have been searching for something for this narrow spot for a while! Just love it so please pick me!!!

  300. I would love to have this to use on our side porch with my great-grandparents wicker furniture. It would be awesome!

  301. I desperately need some shelving in my breakfast nook and this piece would perfectly fit the bill. The height is ideal and the whitewash finish would match beautifully!

  302. I would use it in our dining room/living room area. It’s one seamless space so it would be great place to put it. Love the whitewashed white one!

  303. I would use it in my home office and buy a new desk to match! I soooo need a new look in that room, it’s cramping my creativity!

  304. I love the white washed Baker’s rack. I would use it on my screened in porch. We eat every meal out there from April through October.

  305. I would use the Ceylon Baker’s Rack in my great room. It’s an open concept area from kitchen, dining, to living room, and this piece would provide great opportunity for display as well as much needed storage!

  306. I would love to have the teak baker’s rack for my kitchen. It would give me some extra (pretty!!!) storage space!
    Thanks for the chance!

  307. I would use the Ceylon’s Baker’s rack in my dining room. I would use as an additional serving and display space.

  308. I would use it in the room that goes out on the deck to keep goodies on for snacking and eating out on the deck.

  309. What a gorgeous piece! I’m so torn between the teak for outdoors or the white for the dining area… I’m leaning towards white!

  310. I love the white one! I would use it in my dining room!!! I love the idea of displaying my extra dishes and vases in it! Thank you for the opportunity to win one!

  311. My orchids would love a new home on my patio! Here is sunny South Florida, you would be able to see this delicious baker’s rack through my sliding glass door in my dining room and it would be adorned with all sorts of wonderful and mysterious flowers. The teak one would go just swell with my bamboo furniture! Thanks for the opportunity – cheers!

  312. I would use this piece on my semi enclosed patio. It would look beautiful ready to entertain on the upcoming fall evenings.

  313. I don’t think I can even pick between the finishes. They are both insanely gorgeous! Right now I would put it in my dining room. It’s in need of a statement piece (:

  314. I would use this GORGEOUS bakers rack in my kitchen to replace the monster currently living in there. LOVELOVELOVE it!

  315. Absolutely gorgeous piece! I would put it in my back yard and use it as a stand for my herb garden.

  316. I love both versions, but would pick the whitewashed one! I think I would use it for storage in my office/guest room. I could put baskets on the bottom for extra linens and display all sorts of pretty things on the shelves. Gorgeous!

  317. Well you certainly hit the nail on the head with the title of this post. Gorgeous. I would use it in my dining room to store serving bowls and trays. That would give me some MUCH needed additional cupboard space in our small, poorly designed rental apartment kitchen! I thought I was totally sold on the white but now that I look at them more it would be a challenge to choose one over the other.

  318. I would use it in my dining room to store serving dishes. The white rack would look great against my grey blue walls. Thanks!

  319. I’ve just decided to change our office into a family room…this would be a wonderful addition. Thanks for a great giveaway!

  320. Oh my goodness… many decisions. I think I would pick the whitewashed one and use it in my kitchen for some open storage.

  321. That is so beautiful! Just moved into a new house and finally have a formal dining room. I would definitely put it in the dining room for nice barware and glasses. It would look perfect!

  322. Love this! I need a piece line this that’s not only pretty but so functional
    I have been looking for something to use on my covered side porch not only to store but to use during
    Serving meals and entertaining! I prefer the whitewashed finish because it works best with my existing
    Porch furniture. Lovely!!!

  323. I love the white washed one! It is absolutely one of the best one I have seen! It would look awesome in my dining/living room. I can put lots of cute accessories on it as well as beverage serving items. Thank you!

  324. We moved into our new home in July and are in the process of furnishing a sunroom for the first time. This piece would look fabulous in the room and would be perfect for hosting friends this fall.

  325. I love them both, but think the teak finish would work best for me. I have the perfect spot for it on my covered patio. :-)

  326. This would be wonderful in my dinning room. Need the extra space for the holidays. I never have enough space for all the wonderful food and serving plates for my guests. White wash would work for me!

  327. I can’t decide on the finish but I would put it in our dining room or a family room. It is a beautiful piece and you styled it beautifully

  328. My little getaway cabin definitely needs some pretty kitchen storage. I am already styling it in my head !!!

  329. While I don’t have room for one in my kitchen. And while my dining room ceases to exist because I turned into my coffee house style office, I would love to have the white washed one in my art room. Ooh! I’m excited just thinking about how I could style my camera equipment, my watercolors, and my whatsajigs! It would look fabulous!

    Glad you snagged one! *jealous*


  330. I would use the white washed one in our totally redone, yet to put in cupboards, kitchen/dining room.

  331. I would use one in my bathroom or in my sewing room – those shelves would be perfect for showing off bundles of folded fabrics. It would go in nearly any room – the hard part would be deciding on a finish!

  332. Oh my gosh, I have been looking for a rack/cart for our dining room for a while now, and this one would be PERFECT! I am in love!!

  333. I’d use the white wash on my back patio. I have a huge patio and so far only lawn chairs on it since moving in May.

  334. I would use the white one outside on my front porch. It would be such a fun piece to decorate!

  335. I like the white one. I would use it in the new screened in porch we are designing as a bar. It would be so great with a hot chocolate station.

  336. Oooh! I love this! We will be moving into our new home this fall and I’m mentally arranging our furniture all the time. I think this lovely baker’s rack in white would work well in the entryway off the garage. Styled with some pretty baskets to collect the mail and school papers that I don’t want to have dropped on the kitchen island, it would be a beautiful sanity saver!

  337. This would be a wonderful piece in any room. My first thought for the white washed one is in our master bath. I also love the idea of using either finish as a bar.

  338. I love the whitewash! I will most likely use it in the patio with all of my bbq dishes, candles, etc. Beautiful!

  339. I love the whitewashed finish and I would use it in my home office/reading space. It is beautiful! My collection of vintage children’s hardback books will look cute alongside my kids’ pottery. I’d style it out with some succulents in crisp, white planters and accent it with framed pics from my Etsy store. SO PRETTY! (and functional!)

  340. Love, Love, Love the whitewash finish! I can imagine using it outside on the deck or in the kitchen to disply the essentials for daily life. It’s the perfect size for each area.

  341. That whitewashed rack is calling my name! We just remodeled our kitchen and I have an empty wall that needs a bookcase/rack on it. I want to use it for our coffee station. Its just perfect for that spot!

  342. Love it! Would use it in my kitchen to store serving dishes and display seasonal items. Great piece that could be transitioned to multiple places.

  343. I would use it in my dining room as storage for my great aunt’s china that right now is sitting in a box in the garage because there is no room for it anywhere else!

  344. My home office or my living room – both have a casual beachy vibe and this piece would be perfect.

  345. I would love the whitewash finish in my kitchen… It would beautifully display things we use every day!

  346. This would we perfect in my (small) dining room to store bar ware or items that are taking up precious real estate in the kitchen. Great giveaway!

  347. I could seriously imagine this in any room in our house it’s so pretty and versatile. But, if I had to choose, I think I’d use it in the family room. We considered bookshelves, but I think this would make a much prettier backdrop for books and decorative items.

  348. I would totally use this in the master dressing room of our new/old house (est 1906). I can see displaying my clutches, jewelry and all other forms of pretty girly things!

  349. My kitchen because it’s the exact dimension to fit in a nook where I need extra storage (and can’t afford built ins or new cabinets). I have those melamine plates from Target as Kate has in her photo, so I’d definitely copy the styling as well!
