Baker’s Rack – Simple After Christmas Decor

Now that Christmas is over and I finally packed away all the holiday decor, it was time to do something with the baker’s rack…again.

It’s that in between time of the year when I struggle with wanting things to be cleared out and fresh yet not too stripped down and boring.

So I went simple for now.

Whites always seem to work.

Notice those little trees are still alive from Christmas?

That’s a miracle around here!

I love the look of cookbooks in a basket.  I was thrilled when we received a gift basket over Christmas but not for the cheeses and other treats in there…but because I knew the basket would be the perfect size for cookbooks!

And these are the cookbooks I use the most so it only makes sense for them to be out.

So this is how my baker’s rack will look for a while.

On to the next project…

Do you struggle with accessories during this after Christmas period?

    Ashley, the bakers rack is from a small store in Chester NJ (about 10 years ago). I haven't seen the rack around since but JC Penney and Ethan Allen sell ones that are similar. Hope that helps!
