I remember as a kid my mom would clean a lady’s house, the lady’s name was Aileen. I close my eyes and I remember how Aileen had a lot of bakers racks both inside and outside her home. Both my sister and I used to love to look at her furniture because she had a lot of beautiful old pictures from her past and present.
Her home was so welcoming. She was a great painter. Very artistic, yet simple in her paintings. Guess where she displayed a lot of her paintings? That’s right! Lol! On her bakers racks. She somehow knew how to make her home look very organized yet feel so welcoming. I just loved the small plants she had on her bakers racks. And her roses were beautiful!
My sister and I would get so happy when my mom would tell us to get ready because we were going to Aileen’s house. My sister and I would hurry as fast as we could to get ready. I always beat my sister. Lol! Aileen would let my sister and I climb her big tree that was in her backyard. My sister and I both have quiet a few scars of falling off that tree. But we had so much fun spending time at Aileen’s house she was like family. How we loved her homemade lemonade.
I remember one day my sister asked mom why did she clean Aileen’s house if it was always so pretty. Mom told her, “well sweetie I do that so it can smell nice and keep the dust, bugs and spiders away just like I do at our house”. Mom would let us dust Aileen’s bakers racks. It was actually really simple, mom would just hand us each a wet cleaning rag and we just wiped it down with that. Very simple and fast.
So you are probably thinking, “hmm a bakers rack in my home”? But I say be creative when decorating your home. There are so many different places a bakers rack would look very nice when placed either inside or outside your home. Keep in mind that you could put on display all sorts of stuff from plants, family photos even your nice looking plates.
I recently moved into my home late last year and my wife and I are in the process of planting a garden on the side of our house, we’re getting ready for the summer. And I’m going to be putting two baker racks close to my garden, outside. Both my wife and I love being outdoor. We’ve created many memories and hopefully more for many more years to come.
