Vintage Blanket Rack

When something lands on your doorstep for you to see, that's not exactly your cup of tea, you work with what you got, especially if it was free! Oh Yeah, I can rhyme too.  A lovely neighbor of mine was giving away some things and I immediately saw some potential.  Of course I jumped on the internet to see if I could find an example of what I was thinking in my head and found this:

I'm so in love with this bathroom!  I love everything about it. The pedestal sink, the shower curtain, and that gorgeous coral mirror.  But do you see that blanket rack? I was really inspired by it's double use as a towel rack in the bathroom, but also by the color.

So yeah, I busted out the ol' sandpaper and some left over spray paint from my dining room chair project, and went to work this weekend. It's still in the process of curing -but I was able to get a few snap shots of it in the nursery with some beloved hand-made quilts and one throw.

Here is what the blanket rack looked like when it arrived.  Not really my thing, but it was quality wood and very sturdy.

Here's another after shot for ya:

Here is where the inspiration photo came from.
Hope you all had a great weekend. We are enjoying this lovely fall weather!

That is really pretty. We have a quilt rack that Grandpa George made, not nearly as fancy as this one. Once again, "Good Job"! and a little ♥ for good measure.
