TBT – Tack Room fixes

I’ve decided to use the Throwback Thursday date as a way to bring back some of my old blog posts and move them here. If you’ve read it before, I hope you re-enjoy. If you it’s your first time Enjoy! ~Chris


My husband impresses me all the time. This was his latest fix for our revamped tack room. He needed a blanket rack for the horse blankets and so he threw out some ideas here and there for the last week and then came in and said I got it. He welded a piece of rod iron fencing to some rebar and horse shoes and then anchored it to the wall. My hubby is a jack of all trades. Welds and is always working on improving things it is awesome. I know we are in for a change when I hear… “I’ve Been Thinking” Usually if it’s in concrete I know it’s secure, but if it isn’t well …. it’s up for debate. Here are pics of his saddle blanket rack.

And I found this appropriate for the Tack Room refrigerator. An ode to John Wayne, a Luckenback Texas sticker from our honeymoon and a magnetized bottle opener. I must say that Luckenback stick brings back found memories of the prettiest dance floor I have ever seen in my life. We pulled in to this little place where the sign was and looked at this falling down barn thinking what are we doing. And when we opened the door we just sat there and smiled my husband gave me a little spin on the dance floor and it was the shiniest gleamiest (is that word?) smooth wood with a ton of coating floor. It was beautiful. I yearn to kick up my boots on it again.

And then of course something I think every tack room needs. A cute cowboy. but I might be a little but biased. And that rack on the back is a rack for more tack that he welded. Second hand horseshoes. We have buckets of them.


Thank you for indulging with me and reminiscing on Throwback Thursday!
