Pie Tins and Apron Racks

Last weekend I found this great vintage Mrs. Wagner's Pies tin at an estate sale.


I didn't want to just stick it on a shelf and at first I was going to nail it up on the wall in the kitchen at the lake house, but then I had an idea...

I went out to the garage and grabbed a board from Chablis' stack of sign wood and I stained one side and the edges....


Then I grabbed a hammer and took out my aggressions on the wood.  Boy, that felt good!


I went back out to the garage and raided Louie's tool and nail boxes.  I came up with 2 red cabinet knobs and it's beyond me what he would have ever gotten them for.  I also snagged an old crappy wrench and the back of a shelf hanger.  I attached everything to the wood, including the Mrs. Wagner's Pie tin.

Then I hung it up in my kitchen and now I have someplace to hang all my kitchen aprons...


What do you think?  I kind of like it myself!  I need more aprons.....
