My "About Me" page claims that I re-cycle,
up-cycle and repurpose for the sheer joy of it.
Here's my latest joy...
We've all seen the boot drying racks with
pretty stones, rocks or pebbles in a pan on
So pretty, yes, however, every time you want
to clean out all the accumulated mud & dirt you
have to dump out all the stones, wash them and
let them dry a bit before putting them back in the pan.
Not very practical for this country girl.
I needed something I could rinse off easily
with my hose and put back in place before
the muddy boots started arriving again!
So here's my solution; old cookie sheet,
cooling rack and pretty spray paint.
The cooling rack is easy to rinse & dry and
allows maximum air flow for muddy/wet boots.
Honestly, I did not over think this too much,
so it was a really quick project.
I did not "prepare" the baking sheets in any way
prior to painting. We've been using them now for
over two months. Works perfectly!
Have you used the pebble/stone drying racks?
Do they work for your family?
