Aprons galore = Aprons to store

With Emy's apron gift (I hope you all had a chance to delight in the beautiful things Emy sent - that post got pushed back a little to accommodate the TOO post, which was, for the record, was also completed one day late), I *officially* had too many aprons to hang on the back of the laundry room door. Which wasn't a very stylish way to display them anyway. The solution

I covered an Ikea Bar with fabric, added rickrack (all hot glued on - easy peasy), and used magnetic hooks to hang up all my lovely aprons*. Took me 5 minutes, but it now is my favorite thing in the whole house.

Next laundry room craft: one of these to hold back the door the aprons are behind. Right now the "doorstop" is a ragged copy of an old sci fi novel, which definitely does not meet my style needs.

Fabulous storage/display idea! I collect vintage aprons also, but they are all in a drawer...sadly. Thanks for sharing this great idea!

Aprons are such cheerful, simple things, aren't they?

Have you read the Apron Book yet?

Hey Jen, I know this is an old post, but I am getting around to redoing some things finally! Where did you get the magnetic hooks?
