I was shopping at an antique store today and came across a cute, aged grill rack (or cooling rack) and decided to turn it into a memo rack for pictures and magnets.

I'm new to the community (hence why I can't have images in my post) ^^; so I hope this is posted in the right place.


Completed:

So welcome to craftster. Very nice, and especially as I'm in an organizing/destashing mode, ideas like this are very welcome.

You will love it here. We have cookies (and today, gingerbread).
