It’s About Time: A new-to-me drying rack

A few years ago when I drove out to Arizona to visit my father-in-law. I also headed over to Palm Springs to visit friends and I stopped in Lake Havasu to see a friend.

I was admiring an old-fashioned drying rack that was mounted to the back of the door between the garage and house where my friend was living in Lake Havasu. It was so neat and I started asking questions. Before I knew it, the home owner (my friend’s friend) was taking it of the door and giving it to me. I couldn’t believe it. I loved it, but was shocked and thrilled all at the same time.

About a month ago, when I was still under limitation from my January surgery, I asked my husband if he would put up the drying rack for me. It was a simple, 2-screw task. Half the battle is usually with me trying to decide where to put things. This time I was ready. I had the screw driver ready. I had the 2 screws (and anchors) ready. I even drew a line on the wall (lightly) so he could hang it right where I wanted it.

    No, I don’t believe I have seen one of these. It looks large. But is that just a dish towel hanging there or is it a larger towel? I am sure you will enjoy it and lucky, lucky you to receive it! Have a wonderful Easter. Nancy

    I wonder what era that is from? Early 20’a or 30’s

    • Hi April, I am really not sure what era it is from, I did some searching to try to find out, but just went in circles. I saw called “primitive”, “vintage” and “Victorian” but no where could I find any dates listed with them . There were several photos out there when I search “old-fashioned drying rack” and most of them were a lot more ornate than the one I have.
