The Great Garage Clean up lead to the “use it or lose it” decision process.
Years ago – when I was first started down my reluctant crafting path – I bought all the wood-handled rolling pins I could find.
What? …. No, I honestly have no idea why. Please don’t ask questions like that.
I gathered quite a few and experimented with painting the handles in that old red and white style.
It was fun!
And then….I didn’t know what to do with them. So they sat in a box being secretly decorative.
When I re-discovered them I almost tossed them but then had an idea.
Could I make them into a rack?
And if I could, should I? (a regular debate with me)
Well, there were a lot of them so I thought “why not?” I had an old board with nice routed edges to use as the backer.
I don’t know, it was fine and it was what I pictured but it just seemed to lack something.
So I decided to add a little text!
(I know, I’m like the McDonald’s employee of crafters: “would you like text with that”)
I used Mod Podge to attach it to the base and then re-attached the rolling pins.
Why is the clock crooked?
And why have I never noticed that before?
