Yard Stick Love!

I have been searching for some much needed Project Life organization for my desk.  I am a visual scrapbooker.  If I can see it I am more likely to use it than if it is stored in a drawer or cabinet.  I have been searching my usual flea markets and thrift stores because I love vintage things and just couldn't find anything that fit the bill.  I had seen some trays and such made out of vintage yardsticks on Pinterest and came up with a plan in my mind of what I wanted.  Next I just had to break the news to my husband!  I sketched out what I had in mind and handed it to him along with a pile of Wal-Mart yardsticks.  After giving me a few strange glances he knew resistance would be futile and we headed to the shop.  After many, many, many cuts on the chop saw and lots of wood glue and clamps my little organizer was complete and I was happy.  I added cubbies for the 4x6 and 3x4 cards as well as a long narrow cubby for all of my favorite washi tapes.  There are also small cubbies all along the front edge for all types of small embellishments.  I added some washi along the bottom of the yardstick to cover the Wal-Mart logos.

I hope this inspires you to look for solutions in places you wouldnt normally find them!  Thanks for stopping by!!
