How do I repurpose a unknown rack?

I have a wooden rack that is square. It has 5 sides with dowels like drying racks with one side opened. I don't know what to do with it, but don't want to dispose of it. Any ideas?

    A photo would help.

    It sounds like a drying rack that folds out - since you didn't give us a photo I am guessing at what you actually have. You could use it in a closet to hang belts, scarves, etc on; you could possibly use it as a rack to hang necklaces and bracelets. If you could furnish a photo of this item we could help you more in what to do with it. I can't visulaize it having 5 sides

    Thanks!

    How big is it? Could you post a picture of it?

    Can you please post a photo? If I'm visualizing it correctly, could you hang it on a kitchen wall? Then use large S hooks to hang off the dowels, and then hang pots from that?

    Sounds like a pants rack. As the others have said it's hard to say without a picture.

    Without seeing it, I'm thinking a pot rack.

    Sounds like a drying rack or for hanging slacks. Since you've not used it, you could try that.

    Hi! It could be any of the things mentioned. Or it could be a quilt rack. My grandmother kept handmade quilts on hers. Stay safe!

    15 " x 16" x 15" like a cube but with one side open.
