    If it is strong enough it could be used as a quilt stand. Or a towel rack for a guest bedroom?

    I'd use for bathroom or guest bathroom- The top rack I would use to hang hand towels & wash cloths on. The ones below I would find baskets wicker or cloth that would fit nicely & use the baskets to hold items normally found in a linen closet, extra towels, extra shampoo and hygiene products. Could also use it in a studio or craft room to hold supplies.

    Shoe rack. Or to dry sweaters and blouses on after washing them. Put in your laundry room, if you have one. Or attach more slots of wood to make shelves and put pots of plants and flowers and some knick-knacks.

    I ended up with about 10 of these a few years ago. I gave some away...was convinced I could make something awesome out of them one day. I was wrong. But I kept trying. Here's what mine have become... A Quilt rack in the guest room. ( it didn't work for our shoes) One, I attached netting to the "shelves" and used it as a drying rack for our garden onions. One was laid on its side and used as a narrow - beside the grill- table. I used one as an herb drying rack. Some I cut the dowels out and used the dowels on another project. Then, finally, my favorite ( and pretty much the only one I have left) is in my kitchen holding wire baskets for my canning lids and supplies. Oh, and another has baskets that hold vegetables and fruit. And..yes, more onions.

    Doesn't really work as a bookshelf which was my thought when I picked up one at the thrift store. It is in my garage with a few books and I am still thinking about and searching for a brilliant use like my friends here come up with.,

    Make L shaped horizontal slats to mimic the DVDs angle, then use as book or other shelves. Will not be level - will angle back, but still very useful.

    Gave ours to our neighbor who works at a day care. They anchored it to the wall by the coat hooks and use it to dry wet gloves, socks and small shoes in winter.

    I painted it in bright colors for a client and his daughter is using it to hold her shoes. She likes pink and purple so....it is pink and purple!

    I agree with the some other posters - I have two of these and use them for shoes racks in my closet - they work great!
