in these economic times DIY has become THE trend. its all about the do-it-yourself and save money.
A while back i saw a great memo board that I like that had tear off paper. It was in one of those super high end magazines and when I saw the price my eye began to twitch. no way was I paying that much! I can make it!
i didnt want to spend a dime but i wanted a great product. heres what i came up with:
this is a piece of scrap wood that i had. I soaked it in a tea bath to get an older vintage look. then I took two old rulers, screwed one to the top and one to the bottom. they hold the paper in place but the bottom one also serves to tear a clean line. I robbed an iron towel rack i had and added the iron bar to the top. the paper roll is from lowes. its the paper in the paint isle. i added string and a sharpie. and i love the results.
