I saw an image on Pinterest that has been hanging around in my brain since I saw it. Clever, I thought. Perhaps I can repurpose those cake pans and tins that called to me at Goodwill the other day. I knew I'd find a good use for them at some point. Oh, and the rolling pin collection I seem to have started. And, almost forgot, then there's the lamp base that I wondered what attracted me to it. (oh, yes, I know why, because it has RED on it - it's hard for me to resist something metal that has the color RED on it. (Note the fruitcake tin :/ .... red + metal! )
This is the image that lit the spark...
|cute studio or kitchen organizer - yes???? I thought so!|
Using the lamp base as the organizer base, I then began the task of layering the cake pans with the wooden rolling pin segments. (larger pan on bottom, smaller on top) I used E6000 glue - pretty lethal smelling stuff, but it sure holds and it dries pretty quickly.
|base + first layer|
On a roll, and with parts still available, I made a second. Overall, the project was fast and easy, and I think the finished piece is quite versatile. Thinking, in the studio, to fill with paints, glues, clips, ribbons, tools and more. On the first organizer, there were holes in the bottom pan layer that I could actually feed twine through to dispense it. Cool!
Great home decor item to create an arrangement with or around. I hope to try a smaller one for paper clips and other little desktop necessities. (mini pans and a kids rolling pin)
I could get hooked on these - like I need another project. I truly believe that if I lived to be 1000 yrs. old, I would never run out of things I just MUST try! I bet you can relate to that...
