I love consignment shops. Our's have a lot of antiques and prim items in them and you never know what you will find.
I saw this rack and decided it would be a nice small item to decorate with. It came with the peg rack, so I can also hang ornies on that.
I just threw some things on it for now and put it in that space, since it is item at the moment. I was planning on putting a wall quilt there, but now I am thinking of a long shaker peg rack and then building a hanging shelf and candle holders to go on it. My husband is getting better at building me things as he learns, lol. He used to make me shelfs, benches and other wood items, but he has gotten out of practice. We will have wainscoting on the walls half way up, so I like the idea of prim shaker to keep it simple.
The doilies I hung on the rack are ones I made years ago. I think I need to stain the white one to match the aged look of the others. Who would have thought my lace doilies would make great antique decorations now that they are old;) I just used what was lying around and easy to find. I will be decorating for christmas next week, so will wait till I dig out the boxes, then I can redo the room.
