homestead apron hanger

I'm all about aprons. I love the way they make me feel while I'm in the kitchen or cleaning the house. One of my sewing goals this spring is to make a garden apron that I can wipe my dirty hands on! One of my favorite magazines, Mary Jane's Farm, had a great project in the Jan/Feb 2009 issue that looked something like this.......Almost.
I asked my father in law (who is a cabinet maker) to help me put one together. He ended up making the whole thing. Almost. It really was a 3 person effort. He put together the wooden back splash, I painted it and did the shopping on eBay for the vintage rolling pins, and my husband attached the pins for me. I'd have to say that my part in it was certainly the easiest, and the most fun!

This will be going into the kitchen to hang my aprons from...which will look much nicer than the little rack they are all rolled up and squished in now.
