Vintage Spool Organizer

A new life for a vintage spool rack and frame.

I used Gorilla Glue and finishing nails to attach the spool rack to the vintage frame. 

I gave the whole piece a coat of white paint then backed the frame with buffalo check oil cloth.

Last I added paint cloth rosettes.

I used a black satin ribbon to hang the frame.

Now that ugly spool rack has a little more style!

To my surprise my daughter snatched it up for a jewelry holder... another great idea!

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