Not exactly junk.  My grandma gave me this quilt rack after she moved into a new house since she didn't have room for it.  It had a broken side rail, and though the blue was really cute, it didn't fit my house as well as it did hers.

So after replacing the rail and repainting, I have a spiffy new'ish' quilt rack for my afghans!

Sorry for the pictures!  My only camera is my phone and since its cold outside, I had to paint in my kitchen.  Yes, my husband really must love me.

My furniture is burgundy, my floor an off-white color, and my walls are still just bare plaster white (our house was built in '08 and between work and the 13 year old stepdaughter and our 7 month old daughter, we are lacking this thing called spare time. If only it was as easy to find as it is to find spare change in the couch). Posted: 11:21 am on March 17th
