A few months ago, I was looking for a rolling pin. A simple wooden rolling pin would suffice. But then I saw this adorable one at Anthropologie. And on clearance! After the rolling pin search ended in such cuteness, I couldn't just put the rolling pin in a drawer. I decided to come up with a way to display the pin that allows easy access.
Supplies: wooden plaque in the length you need, paint, paintbrush, two hooks, a hanging hook
You may already know this tip, but I sometimes browse the little clearance paint section of hardware stores. They sell really discounted paint that was mixed to the wrong color. I found this minty green for .50 cents!
These hooks were actually attached to wooden blocks but I got them on clearance and just removed the hook from the block. I also bent the hooks out so they are almost flat, which works with the bulk of the rolling pin.
