WALL MOUNTED RACK FARMHOUSE FIND

Wall mounted paper towel rack
This is kind of a neat find the other day.  It's a wall mounted basket/towel rack.  I think it's for a roll of paper towels since the round rod on the bottom is removable.  Then I guess the top is a basket for more storage of some sort?

It was only $3 when I found it, so I bought it first and will think about it later, ha.  Kitchen?  Maybe the mudroom?  Heck, we could even put a roll of foil or plastic wrap on it and hang it on the JULIA WALL.

If we don't put it there though, I'm thinking that perhaps it might be time to break out the red paint again!

I love thrift stores. What a deal! I'm sure this piece will serve many useful purposes out on your farm.

1st Man,

This would be great for your any room. I think if I was going to use it, I would put it in my kitchen and place my hot pads in the basket(top) and my aprons on the rod with a hook (kind of like you would do with hanging pots).

Or, magazine rack / toilet paper holder in the bathroom.

Kitchen, dish towels on the rod, ???? in the basket.

I have one similar to that only it has two bars for holding things. I have it in my kitchen & holding a calendar. I love it. I just recently found it. Great find.

I was going to write what Tombstone said about the bathroom.

Oh, and if you hang it on the Julia Wall paint it yellow, like your pans, ::grin:: - I showed Pooldad your wall and he loves it as much as I do. I have a solemn promise to have one too when we move. Squuuueeee! Thank you for sharing. YAY!

i have something similar in my guest house. it is in the bathroom and holds multiple rolls of TP and magazines.

Depending on how large the spaces are, I thought possibly for boxes like plastic wrap, aluminum foil, perhaps even plastic baggies?
It's a neat find for sure!

You find the neatest things. My thrift storeS (yes plural) have only stuff I never need or want. How often do you go thrifting?

Hi, just crossed paths with your blog and thought I'd like it.

Linda said...

I love thrift stores and that little rack. I would use that rack for hanging a dish towel on the bar.

Definitely paint it red! Maybe the basket part could hold a favorite cookbook? I like Sandy's ideal about the aprons! Great find as usual. :-)

I purchased one just like this through Amazon... for the bathroom! It holds 2 rolls and my husband's bathroom reading books.

I'm going to make sure I find the perfect use for it! And aren't thrift stores fun?

1st Man said...

Hot pads are a great idea. Thank you!

1st Man said...

I actually thought about the bathroom but there isn't the wall space int here for it. But i like the dish towels idea as well. Thanks!

1st Man said...

Thanks, great suggest as well. Two bars? That would be neat!

1st Man said...

I'm glad pooldad didn't go "what? I"m not doing that" LOL! Glad you got the go ahead you have to let me know when you get it!!! Yay!

1st Man said...

I wish our TIIIIINY bathroom had the wall space for that, ha.

1st Man said...

Great idea on that. I could work with that, ha. Thanks!!

Living in Houston, we have quite a few and there are about 5 within lunchtime driving distance from work. So i try to hit a couple each week. Sometimes I do find something, but others I walk out with nothing. It is fun though huh? :-)

1st Man said...

Well hello and welcome! Hope you'll come back often!!

1st Man said...

Dish towel is getting lots of votes, ha.

1st Man said...

Oooh, cookbook idea great one too! And the aprons, while of course we don't wear them, LOL, in storage I have my Grandmothers' old aprons. Might make a nice memory huh?

1st Man said...

Definitely! I love a bargain find, ha.

1st Man said...

Great idea, I wish I had the space in the bathroom for it, ha. And good to know I can find another should I need one!
