Practically everyone I talk to has some ‘special’ dishes. Some fine china, heirloom pieces or just some that are fantastically beautiful. For me, I have ‘fancy’ ones that I use for my blogging…you see them here often with my recipes, and even with crafts on occasion! Now I can show them off with this DIY Dish Display Cabinet!

Until now, I’ve been storing them all crowded in a shelf up in my craft room. It’s frustrating trying to go through them to decide which I want to use when they’re stacked all sloppily! So I made a couple of these awesome cabinets (with major help from Hubby) and now I can see everything perfectly…plus they’re less likely to bump each other and chip. Woot woot!

This only took us a few hours (plus drying time), and was friendly to our budget. You can switch up the sizes/shapes as you want, so I’m not including measurements – just the overall ‘how to’.

Supplies

  • Thin wood plank for backing
  • 4 Wood boards for sides (together should frame your back piece)
  • Boards for shelves
  • Dowels/posts for railings
  • Nail/staple gun
  • Sand paper, if needed
  • Measuring tape
  • Hot glue/gun or wood glue
  • Paint of choice (I used spray paint)

Directions

  1. Make sure your 4 outside boards are cut to the appropriate sizes, then use a nail/staple gun to secure the corners together. DIY Dish Display Cabinet / by Busy Mom's Helper #showmetheshine #ad

  2. Secure the backing with your nail/staple gun. DIY Dish Display Cabinet / by Busy Mom's Helper #showmetheshine #ad DIY Dish Display Cabinet / by Busy Mom's Helper #showmetheshine #ad
  3. Measure the height you want your shelves, then cut them to size and nail/staple them securely into place. DIY Dish Display Cabinet / by Busy Mom's Helper #showmetheshine #ad DIY Dish Display Cabinet / by Busy Mom's Helper #showmetheshine #ad
  4. Using your hot glue gun (or wood glue), secure your dowels where you want them. DIY Dish Display Cabinet / by Busy Mom's Helper #showmetheshine #ad DIY Dish Display Cabinet / by Busy Mom's Helper #showmetheshine #ad
  5. Paint as desired.

That’s it! It didn’t take long at all (other than having to run back to the store because I bought the wrong size of nails…ugh!) and now all my dishes have their place!
