This Quick little re-purposed Baby Crib Drying Rack Saves you Money.
If you looking for a way to save some money on those electric bills. Then this project that only takes about 30min to make can save you hundreds of dollars. Your electric dryer is one of the biggest users of electricity.
Just look for that free Baby Crib to start with. I found mine on Craig's List. You might even have one in the attic or Garage that is no longer in use and you don't know what to do with it. Well just turn it into a Baby Crib Drying Rack.
Just a little bit of chain ... 2 hinges and a few screws and Waaa laaa you have a way to save money when drying your clothes. It folds up for easy storage and can be moved out side when the sun is out bring you that great fresh out doors clean smell.
I hope you like this post, please come back for more projects that I re-purpose in the future.

The 1890s Head Board bench

Today I delivered the 1890s Head Board Bench to my customers. They were very happy to see it arrive, and so was I.
I learned the Head Board actually was older than I thought. The customer told me that it had been passed down 5 generations and was thought to be at least early 1830s. They knew that it had traveled across the US from the east coast to North Carolina to Missouri in a covered wagon and then to Texas and back to Missouri in another wagon.
The thing that they were so happy about was Her Father was arriving in the morning to stay with them and He was going to be the first to stay in their new guest room with the old head board that was now a bench. That was cool, I didn't know He was coming to visit so the timing of getting the Re-purposed Head Board into a Bench was going to make their visit special, and something they could surprise him with.
I wish all my re-purposed items had that history behind them, the story is can be more cool than the re-purposed item.
Thanks for reading this about the 1830s Head Board Bench that I was privileged to Re purpose.
