I am not going to talk about every shelf, but will highlight a few of my favorites. I am very fortunate to have this large area solely to indulge my dish hobby.
Here are the first two units (I have four of these): I used to have all the shelves the same size, but noticed some buckling of the shelves, so I decided that I needed to put most of the super heavy plates on the bottom where there is more support. That meant I had to remove the four little silver thingies that hold each shelf and re-adjust them all. . . major ordeal....let me tell you...
One shelf is dedicated to my Tiara glass. I have loved this amber-colored dishware since the 1980's (when everyone else hated it--perhaps they still do, but I still love it).
Here are the other two shelf units:
I put another skinny shelf on the top of the end section for big heavy relish trays. Shelf #2 is full of small relish trays. You would think we eat a lot of relish around here--LOL.
The bottom shelf holds white milk glass plates and my collection of those vintage crystal star plates (can't think of the proper name right now--maybe Federal Star or something similar--anybody know?).
I cannot tell you how good it feels to have this job done. I had DH take the 3 boxes to goodwill right away so I would not be tempted to grab more items back. I did grab a few before he left.
Like these tarnished silver plated items:
It feels so good to have this major task completed!
