Vintage Spool Organizer

A new use for a vintage spool rack and frame...
Gorilla Glue and finishing nails attached the
spool rack to the vintage frame. 
I gave the whole thing a coat of white paint... 
then backed the frame with checked oil cloth (thanks Olivia)
and added paint cloth rosettes....

I used a black satin ribbon to hang the frame...

Now that ugly spool rack has a little style!

Surprise on me, my daughter snatched it 
up for a jewelry holder...

So many uses.... ribbon? ties? craft supplies?
What do you think? 



  1. What an awesome project! I would definitely use it for thread.

  2. Oh that's great. I love the idea of the jewelery on it.
    I think you did a great job. But I think erverything is lovely in white :-)


  3. What a great way to use it...looks so cute with the jewelry on it.

  4. I LOVE it!!!! Since I have been sewing more, I am actually in need of a spool organizer and I have been looking for ways to "fancy it up"! I will look no further! Thanks for sharing!!!

  5. Contemplating and I'm going "hmmmmm"......

    I need this in my laundry room where my very unused sewing stuff is located.


  6. I think it looks awesome! What a great idea!

  7. Love it! I have wanted to add something to my sewing room wall. Functional, and cute!
