Make-Do Quilt Racks

I wanted something different to hang my quilts and coverlets. One day while out antiquing I found an old cement finishers tool and thought it would make a great bracket to hold the rod for the rack. I then found an apple butter paddle and thought it would make the perfect "stick" to hold a quilt. I had Mr. M hang it up and the rest is history. Of course it's like potato chips and I had to have more! I had him cut one of the cement smoothers in half to hold a ladder full of coverlets and then I used two old wood planes to make a third. I think they work great and look really primitive.


  1. Great idea! Love the look too. Don't you just love thinking of ways to use something other than it's intended use? Cherie
