A Victorian drying rack becomes a room divider and display for vintage fabrics

Fabric display 1This is what you see first when you walk into my new room. It is a room divider and camoflauge for my craft area. It is actually an old Victorian drying rack. I saved it from being sold at our yardsale before we moved last year. It was stored in the rafters of my parent's garage, and I don't remember seeing it before my dad pulled it out to sell it. I thought it was really interesting and I didn't know then what I was going to do with it, but knew that I would think of something eventually. Now here it is, happily acting as a room divider and display for some of my favorite fabrics and linens.
I should have taken a photo of it with nothing on it so that you could see it better. It is 3 folding sections with 4 dowels in each section to hang your clothing on. It's not the sturdiest thing. Behind it is my ironing board, two trunks and a bureau that store fabrics and craft supplies, and my work table.
Click images for closer views of each of the 3 sections, and more details on some of the fabrics.
