Painted Dish Rack

I now have a better excuse to collect more blue & white plates....my newly hung dish rack is empty and sooo lonely!
I have one plate that will fit, out of several blue & white plates. This rack is quite old. I spruced it up with white paint and gold leaf details. I'm staying true to my Swedish Gustavian look I have going throughout the house.
But it won't hold a modern dinner plate - modern plates are waaay too big now! So I can save some money and collect salad-sized plates, as is this Spode beauty.
I can't wait to go snooping around now for plates to display on the wall....they'll come in handy if I need extras for tea party of lunch.
