A New Quilt Rack

Hello everyone! Phillip had to work late last night so we decided to go to Goodwill. Earlier that day I had been looking through a catalog at some $70.00 quilt racks...Yikes! Imagine my surprise when I saw one at Goodwill a few hours later for $10.99! It just needed a good polish with some Old English wood cleaner.


It has three long wooden bars on it for hanging quilts.


I also displayed my vintage linens, an idea I borrowed from Martha. :0)




Thank you for looking at my new quilt rack!


My apron giveaway is still going, scroll down to see the post!

What a treasure you found! It's beauiful! I know you will have such fun alternating some of your linens often, giving new ones time in the spotlight. :o)

That is so pretty. I had a quilt rack and I gave it away when we moved. I wish I had it back. Yours looks great with the linens on it.

Ooh, I'm thrilled with the bargain you found. I LOVE to find just what I've wished for when I'm thrifting. Sometimes I wonder if God saves them just for me and then places them in the perfect spot for me to find just as I discover them. You did a great job displaying your linens. You encourage me and while I read and looked at your linens I "suddenly" remembered a fantastic oak quilt shelf/hanger that's in my garage. I'm going to go out and get it, dust it off and hang it in my sewing room with some of my vintage linens and perhaps an old quilt peeking out from under them. You are an inspiration. Thanks for sharing.

Great find Kelli!
I love how you also displayed your vintage linens on top of the quilts. I've been trying to think of a way to put more of mine out so I can enjoy them every day..
Love this idea!!

What a WONDERFUL find, Kelli!! I gave one as a wedding gift a few years ago and paid WAY more than $70 even! So the price you found at Goodwill is WONDERFUL!!

We enjoy going to Goodwill, too, to see if there are any "hidden gems" waiting on us. Looks like you found one for sure!

His,
Mrs. U

Oh, how cute, I think it really compliments the room. And what a wonderful blessing.

Cheryl (copper's wife) said...

Wow, Kelli, what a great find!!! It's absolutely great!! A quilt rack is definitely an item on my thrift store/garage sale list......I am encouraged by your find!

Becky said...

That is beautiful and I love the way you displayed everything. Those quilts and linens should not be hidden in a closet. Nice find!

Sharon Kay said...

Goodwill in Washington is my favorite place to shop. The Goodwills in California where I'm living now are dismal...
I bought my quilt rack at Goodwill also for a real bargain.
Blessings!

I really like your quilt rack - what a bargain too. Hopefully I shall manage a show and tell this week too - haven't had time recently.

Oh, what a great find! I love quilt racks, I have one, but it was given to me by my mom and has served me well, through several military moves. It was one item I didn't store, I brought it home with me and it is in my room here:)

PEA said...

How come I never find such things at our thrift shops???? lol Oh Kelli, it's gorgeous and I so love the way it displays all your vintage linens!! What a lucky find indeed!! xox

This is so nice, Kelli! I have a quilt rack that I love and would like to get another one. Maybe I'll check out our local thrift stores, too.

That is absolutely beautiful. You have a way with arranging items for a lovely display.

I have a friend who, like you, can find treasures like this at Goodwill. When I go all I see is stuff like what is crowding my garage! LOL

I have the exact same quilt rack! :) My husband picked it up for me at a yard sale down the road for $10 a month after we married last year. Isn't it great?! We seem to have the same taste in decorating..i love all of your photos and crafting. I've been reading your blog (for the first time) all night!

I love this! I wouldn't have thought to look for a quilt rack at Goodwill. Your linens on the rack make a great home accessory!
