Today I wanted to share a little change I mentioned when I showed off the new bench I added to our Master Closet. My mother-in-law gifted me this cool rusty rake head after I’d sent her some gardening organization ideas using some.
We used it in the dining room over the summer to hang cut herbs as they dried which worked quite well. But when I was purging my jewelry for an upcoming consignment sale and wanted to rearrange the larger pieces I keep next to the jewelry cabinet I thought using the rake would work much better than the thumb tacks I was currently utilizing.
So the rake head moved from the dining room to the closet, where it gives a much cleaner look. I reused those thumbtacks to hang the rake head, but I might swap them out for smaller finishing nails to make the look even cleaner.
I like that I can hang items using one tine or multiple depending on how heavy and wide each piece is. And it’s easy to grab an item when getting ready and just as simple to put it away at the end of the day. But the best part is that the update didn’t cost me a single dime **cue heavenly music** and took less than 5 minutes to do!
There’s room to add another if my jewelry collection grows, so I’ll be on the watch for both a second rusty rake head and more pretty large jewelry! Like I said, there’s some big consignment sales coming up! 😉
