This post shows 2 easy ways to style an accordion wall rack from the thrift store. One for baby and one for mama!
Accordion wall racks are a great thing to thrift! They are both practical and beautiful, and serve many uses! You could put one in any room of the house and it would serve that room well. In the bathroom – for towels, in the kitchen – hung vertically for mug storage, in the mudroom – for cleaning supplies and outerwear, in the dining room – for decor, in the bedroom – for accessories, etc.
I have thrifted at least 2 or 3 accordion wall racks in the past, and I always come across them! Accordion wall racks are quite easy to thrift, so I thought it would be fun to show you 2 easy ways to style them in your home!
They are also a great organizational item if you are looking to add some storage to your walls, but don’t want to commit to drilling holes for a heavy duty shelf. If you’re having a hard time thrifting one, this accordion wall rack is very affordable.
Accordion Wall Rack: Styled For Baby
Baby girl is always giving me style inspiration – I love decorating with all her cutie baby things. This accordion wall rack is actually hanging in her nursery!
When I styled these I focused on mixing materials, while still keeping the color scheme neutral so that all the items would pair together well. The wood bead teether came in a set with baby girl’s wood play gym, which was a dear gift from my aunt.
I thrifted the mini wicker basket and the leather strap wicker purse. The dress I made as a gift for baby girl’s 1st birthday. Here is a tutorial if you’d like to make one too!
My mama made this little heart ornament just for fun! She’s always making the cutest and most creative things with her hands!
Lastly, this bonnet was another gift for baby girl from a dear friend at church!
Accordion Wall Rack: Styled For Mama
Styling accordion wall racks is all about balance. For baby’s version (above) I used all of the middle pegs, the top left peg, and right peg. For mama’s version (below) I only used the middle pegs.
These are not the only “formulas” to use, but they help keep balance in mind. It’s also great to layer items and place longer items in the middle to “center” the rack. Smaller items work best on the top or middle pegs, with larger items on middle or lower pegs.
Though this accordion rack is in the nursery, I have a peg rail in my husband and I’s bedroom that I tend to hang with the similar things: hat, purses, coats, and decor.
Both the knit purse and Levi’s denim jacket are second-hand. And I’m having such a hard time remembering where the little gold picture frame is from! But I believe it is second-hand as well.
The wool rancher hat is from Anthropologie – I actually work there part time, about once a week! Though I love thrifting and finding good deals, I really love Anthro and enjoy working in such a beautiful and inspiring environment! The hat is from a few years ago, but here is a similar one from Asos.
