My New Rack!

Hey there everyone!  I know it’s been quiet around here since our trip.  Life has been super busy and I’ve barely had time to work on projects let alone share any.  But today I’ve got a little change in the dining room to share.  We replaced the indoor herb wall that wasn’t growing to well with this simple farmhouse style rack.

It’s a perfect fit for the short wall just off the laundry room and has become the spot to display my budding collection of Rea Dunn mugs!  This was one of several larger items we hauled back to Alaska on our recent trip.  I’d ordered it some time ago and had to ship it to my sister’s house in VA so I could pick it up when we were there for my nephew’s wedding.  Here’s a wide shot to give you an idea of where it’s located, along with a sneak peek of the minimal fall decorating I did.

I love the contrast of the black distressed metal and white mugs against the tan wall.  I wish the mugs could face out to the left so they were readable from the main area, but overall it’s just what I envisioned.  I plan to add a little bunting or garland during holidays to add a bit of flair, which might be my next DIY project.

My collection is still pretty small with only four options. The MRS. one is my fave at the moment and the Relax is a close second.  The Hubs has enjoyed using the MR. a couple times already so I guess he thinks this is a good update, even if it did require patching the holes from the herb rack and repainting a section of the wall.  Good thing he loves me right?!

I’ve added a few more mugs to my collection recently that feature holiday designs so don’t be surprised if those show up on my social media feeds! 😉  I’ll be back in a day or two with another little project I did this fall, so stay tuned.
