A few weeks ago, I took a few hours to go thrift store shopping. There are many thrift stores around my home and I had been meaning to spend time finding goodies, but waited until I had an afternoon without the kids.
At one store, I found a broken baby bed (and likely recalled as well) in the back of the store. I asked the lady if I could buy just this piece, and she gave it to me for only $5.
I brought it home, gave it a coat of antique white spray paint, and asked my husband to hang it on the wall. Because I didn't want it flush against the wall, my husband added blocks (about 3 inches thick) to the four corners of the rail.
So, we found some very long screws and anchored this rail to the wall.
I was so excited! I grabbed my vintage sheets and made this functional wall art....
The space between the rail and the wall allow the sheets and fabric to hang freely.
So, not only does this keep my sheets from wrinkling, but it helps me better see my collection and get inspiration from these bright colors.
This idea would also work for quilts, bedspreads, or any other type of fabric you wanted to display on a wall. What types of things would you hang on a rail like this?
