A while ago, someone emailed me and asked where I store all my vintage dishes. I did a post back in 2008 in regards to some of my storage solutions, so I decided to show my laundry room again since it has been a while.
I use every available space I have to display my most favorite plates and treasures. This vintage drainboard sits on top of my washer and holds plates and a few cups.
My son installed the cabinets which hold all the not so pretty things along with the shelf above the washer and dryer. I am so glad my son is handy like that!!
This piece was a one of a kind sorta find for me. Several years ago, it was listed on craigslist and we drove over an hour to pick it up. It is hand made by the original owner's father and she did not want it any more. I paid $150.00 for it and consider it a real bargain. It is one of my favorite things.
It holds all my platters and plates perfectly, some spaces are doubled up on plates and platters. It holds a lot!! I refuse to count, but trust me, over 100 for sure! This photo is not a recent photo and trust me, when I say EVERY slot is filled with most likely two plates or platters per slot!! It is a workhorse for storage!
I use every spare inch of space that I can. The top holds all of my vintage restaurant-ware creamers. I even have some plates on the back wall!
I love how they are all lined up in rows!! Pretty.
I am glad I have space in my laundry room to house some of my treasures! I know some are not so lucky with their laundry space.
Happy Vintage Thingie Thursday!!
