Outdoor Baker's Rack ~ Three Ways

Hey, Y'all!
Here it is the middle of June, and my baker's rack on the deck is a hot mess. 
It's become a catch-all for empty pots and garden things I've left there, because I was too lazy to take them to the shed. Pitiful! 
And, no, I'm not going to show you a pic of it.

We've been having rain storms almost every day, so, I've been trying to think of something "weather resistant" to spruce it up.
I looked back at some of my old posts to, hopefully, get some ideas. I really had forgotten doing these...senior  moments. :)

Here's one is from a post last year. Click HERE to see that post.

And, this one is from May 2011. Click HERE

This one was a week later in May of the same year! Gosh, I was on a roll. Click HERE

After lunch today, I went to Home Goods to see if I could find something...or for some inspiration, but no luck. 
Maybe I'll just fill it with plants, like I did in the middle picture.  
At least they'll like the rain.

I hope y'all have a great weekend. I'm headed to the garden center.

Babs, I have been much slower this year than usual also. My side sitting area just got cleaned up a week ago. Usually I am all through cleaning up by Mothers Day. Love your rack all three ways, but my fav is the plant coming out of the picnic hamper in the bottom photo. Thanks for sharing with SYC.

I'm especially in love with photo 3. That picnic hamper is to die for!! So are your basil and rosemary plants.

Bakers' racks are so beautiful. I've always wished I had one. Maybe one of these days.

Have a wonderful weekend,

Oh goodness Babs, I love this baker's rack!! Your picnic hamper is just gorgeous! I think all three pictures are lovely, and I'm sure you'll come up with something just as pretty this year. :)

Enjoy your weekend!

What a nice versatile piece. It looks amazing no matter how you dress it. Lovely!

Kelly said...

It's nice that you have a piece like that to decorate outside. I think a mix of plants and garden statuary would look good and be safe outside.

Babs that last shot is my pretty!!

Babs, I agree that the last photo is my favorite. Love the basket filled with flowers and the other woven pieces mixed in. Have fun creating this summer's vignette.

So it's NOT just me having trouble finding inspiration for the wrought iron baker's rack this year? I am sorry you're having the same troubles, but glad to have a partner in this. I fixed it up really nice for a post, but then completely disassembled it because of the weather here. We've had so many storms and so much doggone rain...there was no way I could keep anything on the shelves! Now that it's quieting down a bit (I hope!), maybe I can find some inspiration on Pinterest to get something semi-permanent going out there. Actually, I'm going to start with your last photo for that inspiration! I think that's onto something that I'd like to do!!!

Babs, all three ways are beautiful. Love the baker's rack! Thank you so much for sharing at Tuesdays at Our Home. Hugs, Maria

Debbie said...

If I can ever find the piece that I want for my kitchen (where my baker's rack currently lives), want to move mine outside. In my head, it will look just as lovely as yours does!

Hi Babs, featuring you at SYC today.

The Charm of Home said...

That's funny Babs I look back and wonder how I did all the stuff I used to blog about. I had so few children then, now my nieces and nephew come over and it limits the blog time greatly! Pretty looks on your deck!

Love it! Great addition to your outdoor space. Thanks so much for sharing at AMAZE ME MONDAY...

Love these ideas. I have a baker's rack almost just like this one, and I have wondered what to do with it. I just have few plants right now. Tomorrow I will go take a critical look and get busy. You are inspiring. Thx.
