Upcycled Kitchen Ipad Stand

When I saw the ipad stand at Pottery Barn
I knew I had to make one!




And in true Homeroad style, it had to be made 
of repurposed parts. 




An old cutting board from the thrift store, a piece of
antique trim molding leftover from another project, and
an old trowel found in my grandfather's basement....

I epoxied the trowel to the back of the cutting board,
and yes, it is amazingly sturdy!...



I added a stencil for decoration...




The pieces came together to create a one of a kind, 
junk styled ipad stand for my kitchen!



The best part is that it works with the case too!

  1. That's brilliant! I really like the old trowel as the bracket, such a great idea. My favourite diy's always involve using unusual items, and this one rocked it.

  3. That is so cool, Susan! Who'd think to use a cutting board in that way! Well, you did. : ) It is actually perfect in a kitchen, too, especially if you use a lot of recipes online. I'm always either printing recipes out and propping them on my cookbook stand or I have my laptop sitting on the upper counter to look at.
