this is not a tie rack. it’s serendipity.

this was indeed intended to be a tie rack. but i don’t own any ties. however, i do own a bunch of necklaces that i spend way too much time untangling on a regular basis. the other day i was so frustrated at the puzzle of tangles i’d made i felt a little like i was losing my mind. so later that afternoon, when i saw this vintage tie rack for sale, i swooped it right up, knowing right away it was the serendipitous answer to my many tangled messes. i wouldn’t call this diy, that would be one helluva stretch. but i did screw it into my bedroom wall and i’m quite pleased with the results. i think it looks just dandy. and it frees up my vintage dish full of bracelets and watches to live all on their own. they like a little independence and a tangle-free life.
i like discovering the odd, serendipitous vintage piece and turning into something somewhat unexpected and giving it a new, meaningful and useful life, don’t you? have you given something new life? do tell.
