As a professional baker, Ursula, who lives in Chicago, Illinois, started getting a lot of aprons from her friends as gifts. “Now it’s totally become a thing and I’m very proud of them!” she says. “Unfortunately most are too pretty to wear while I’m making a mess in the kitchen.”

Instead of hiding them in a drawer, Ursula figured out a way to put them on display for all her visitors to see.

She added a few lengths of string and used clothespins to hang up her aprons. Now, her wall of aprons is her favorite part of the entire apartment.

In keeping with the clothespin theme, Ursula also added a space to hang up recipes and random odds and ends under her upper kitchen cabinets.

Kinda makes us want to get a few more aprons.
