Re-purposed Headboard Quilt Rack

Good evening everyone! I hope you have had a great weekend.       I am posting something that I have meant to post for a very long time.  This is an old, and I mean old headboard that I bought at a flea market in Maggie Valley, North Carolina 12 or 13 years ago. I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it when I saw it. With lots of elbow grease, sanding, primer, base coat, drawing a pattern, transferring it to the headboard, painting it, and finally top coat sealer I had a whimsical quilt rack!  At first I was going to sell it. I had it in a craft show in Tennessee. A man saw it and came running to my table, he was so excited about this quilt rack. He yelled for his wife and she came running too.  They oood-and-aaahd about it and even told me it was so whimsical and just magical. They wanted to purchase it so bad BUT........ they were visiting from Scotland and it would have cost them more than I had on it to have it shipped to Scotland.    Well, I decided to keep it for my guest bedroom and I love it.  I hope you like it as much as I do.    
 I love how my quilt looks hanging from my quilt rack!
 I just had to turn the top knobs into little bluebirds!  Please excuse any nicks or marks, I have had it for a long time.
I love my whimsical kitties and sunflowers! Oh, and the sweet little mouse at the end!    Have a wonderful evening and thank you for stopping by!

  4. You are a skilled painter, you should re-purpose furniture and turn around and re-sale it!

  5. Pam, this is amazing. It would be hard to part with after all the work you put into it. Those little kitties are just too cute. My husband is not a fan of cats so I haven't done much with cats until recently when both my sons adopted two kitties apiece. So now I am making cat cards to send to them. LOL! Amazing job and I am so glad you shared it!
