Re-Purposed Thrift Shop Homemade Noodle Dryer Linen Rack

 When I saw this item at the local thrift shop, I wasn't exactly sure what it was.  The store clerk said she thought it was a homemade noodle dryer.  I agreed it was used for food because the dowels where a bit oily feeling.  

I washed it down good with some hot water and Dawn dish soap to remove the grease.

 Then I painted the dryer with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Pure White.

 I added another one of my Tim Holtz metal tags.  This one says "Remnants".  These tags are available at craft shops or on Amazon.

I drilled a hole at the top of each of the side dowels for hanging.
