WHAT ME? COPY?

See this?

I’ve wanted one forever. You can buy them HERE for anywhere from $89.00 to $219.00  Or you can make one for about $12.00
I bought primed MDF boards and I got the backing in the cull pile at Home Depot for 50 cents.
I made the frame…

I used 7/8'” dowels for the rack…

Then I painted them white…

And did a turquoise wash all over…

Then hung it up in my bathroom..

Just saw this at MI4M and love it! It makes me want to make one to hold little vintage dresses in my daughter's room.

WOW. This is a great project. You could hang any sort of things..I'm thinking great place to hang my scraps of fabric too.

Coming over from Mi4M and I am glad that I stopped by.
This is ingenious! I have looked at that thing so many times and almost ordered one. A friend of mine did.

Now, I know how to make one.
Thanks,
Rhonda

OK, first. I found you on Make it 4 Monday. This project is way beyond my abilities but you did an awesone job on a very cute idea! Love it, but I LOVE your header photo more! I am a professional Photographer and this is reality! I need to shoot this when it is happening instead of waiting for eveyone to settle down! Thanks for sharing your project!
