Vintage Thingie Thursday loves colliding with Show and Tell Friday


Vintage Thingies Thursday is hosted by Lisa at Confessions of an Apron Queen.
Show & Tell Friday is Hosted by Kelli at There is No Place Like Home.

This week I'm sharing my grandmother's old washboard.
My dad made it into a towel hanger and it now hangs in my laundry area.

I love it and how clever of you dad to turn it into something so useful :)

Not only is that adorable but the rooster towel is just to die for. Great idea for a laundry room. I like how he turned it into something useful. Neat-O

Great idea-great rooster towel too.

I am so impressed with your washboard/towel bar. What a great idea!

Great washboard! I like the rooster towel, too.

What a great use for your washboard! I may have to steal that idea...

Janet said...

oh, I LOVE that!

That is a great use for a washboard. We have a couple of old ones in my family--we should do something like that.

Most importantly, though, where did you get that fantastic rooster towel?

Kellie said...

Totally cute! I'd have never thought of that...and I love the rooster towels too!

Dawn said...

Oh what a great idea to convert the washboard. Terrific!

Great idea - makes a perfect place to display your beautiful towels.

I love it! A practical use for something dear! I have a washboard that I got at an antique store and it sits on top of my kitchen cabinets with some lye soap and other stuff. I like the idea of turning it into a towel holder though!

Last week I shared about my Grandma's trunk, the "before restoration" photos. I got it back and I have posted its transformation on today's S&T.

Love it! My mom actually used to do laundry on a scrub board when she was a young girl.

Mrs. Miles said...

A washboard! Whoooeee, I bet our children don't even know what one is anymore. What a creative idea, and what a lovely reminder of the hard work your grandmother had to do to keep those whites white!

Thanks for sharing.

Great old washboard, Lisa. How wonderful that you have your grandmothers. I have my mother-in-law's. She said she washed my husband's diapers on it!
