One thing that drives me crazy when I'm cooking is digging for my recipe cards amidst the clutter of ingredients on my counter! I was at my grandma's house this past weekend and she had a wooden recipe card holder. Unfortunately, it was from 1974! They just don't make things like they used to! With the help of Hobby Lobby I decided to make my own! I just love the way it turned out!
Here's how I did it:
Hobby Lobby has all sorts off fun Wood Shoppe products! For this project I used a jumbo paper clip, one wooden nickel, a candlestick and a base. You can either get these on sale or wait until they have a 40% coupon and they are super inexpensive!
First I used the Dremel to grind the candlestick to the angle I needed it.
Then I glued the candlestick, base and paperclip together.
I spray painted with Rustoleum Heirloom White. Rustoleum has better covereage than other spray paints I've used. You can find this at Home Depot. Tip: I actually used a clip while I painted the paper clip to get the inside!
I think this little guy will get a lot of use!
