I love scarves. I've always loved them. I don't wear them as often as I used to particularly since I resumed knitting about 4 years ago. I've knitted cowls, ponchos and shawls that have take the place of wearing scarves in cooler weather.
When I worked in a corporate environment from the mid-1980's until the early 2000's, I wore decorative scarves weekly to work. I still have many of them.
Recently, I needed to shift some things around in our walk-in closet displacing my crude scarf storage system made up of a bunch of coat hangers tied together with the scarves draped over them. I know that things buried in a drawer are forgotten so I wanted at least some of my scarves still out where I could reach for them.
This is the solution I came up with. The last free wall space in the closet was a small area behind the door. I used 2 - 1x4x6 boards and 6 - 4 foot dowels. I painted the boards and then my husband suggested I screw them together before drilling the holes to assure that they lined up. He also has a drill press which made drilling the holes fast and exact. You could do the same thing with a regular drill.
Here's the finished scarf rack with a few scarves on it. In the end, it held 25! The rest, and yes there are more, are in a drawer. Some of the ones on the rack are winter and can be removed in just a couple more weeks.
I did this project on Sunday and all week I've popped into my closet to admire my storage solution. I also wore one of the scarves this week.
Drapery embroidery continues, I'm through two widths of the 4 needed. Thanks for visiting today!
