When Bruce bought this house, it came with lattice on every single window (to, ya know, complement the shutters and porch balustrade with heart-shaped cut-outs). He pulled down most of them years ago, and they resurfaced recently during the Great Shed Cleanout of 2011. With a little white spray paint and glue, I repurposed two of them into this great scarf rack.
You can do it too! Here’s how:
DIY Scarf Display Rack
Hooks (for installation)
Locate some old window lattice. This lattice was made of plastic, so I’m hoping that means less snagging as I pull the scarves on and off the rack.
Spray paint the lattice a color that matches your décor. We don’t really have a décor, so I went with white.
Let the paint dry overnight. Just to be sure, I decided to forget about the project for about 10 days. The paint was really dry.
Stack the pieces together, overlapping them to create a pleasing geometric shape.
Find some industrial strength glue that you opened a couple years ago. Muck around with it until you manage to extract some still viscous glue. Ew, I said “viscous.”
Use said glue to glue the pieces together. Forget about the project for another several days.
We used these long-stemmed hooks to mount the scarf rack on the wall. This one went in a little crooked but you can’t tell once all the scarves are on there. I recommend using some wallboard anchors if you can’t find (or don’t feel like looking for) a stud.
Ta da! It’s getting cold around here, so this project is finished just in time for scarf season.
