New drying rack

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.

Your drying rack was a wonderful find, and it works quite well near your new quilt ladder. This picture is so pretty and shows a relaxing setting. Nice work putting it all together!

I love your new rack and also love the way you decorate. Isn't it wonderful to poke around a shop and find something old/new to bring home? Love your doiles too.

Thanks, it would be nice if the walls were finished, lol.
Will have to start going through the christmas boxes and seeing what will go up this year, nothing breakable unless it goes on a high shelf;)

Hey Debbie. I love the way your rooms (walls) are coming together. Great decor! Keep up the good work.

It is hard to get a picture with the right angle. Yesterday I added two more of my frakturs to make a grouping and a little shelf below them, so now the wall is full and cozier looking.
