DIY Towel Rack

I went to my local antique store and was given this awesome thing...not sure what it was... It had awesome stenciling on the back, saying "Patented July 25, 1882" and carpet on the other side. Anyway, I wasn't sure what I'd do with it at first. Then, inspiration struck! I'd make it into a hand towel holder! I quickly unscrewed the foot pedal(?) and then attached it to the rockers with a few screws. Then I used some wired twine(?) that I had in my stash and ran it through the screw holes where the pedal once was. Then I added some hinges to the back for hangers, and voila! A towel holder!
