This paper roll grocery list has both...
Using pieces I had from a broken children's table top
paper center, I recreated the piece to fit the look of a
In order to hang it on the wall I had to make
some changes to the original roll. I began by pulling off 2 of the sides, turning them around, and reattaching them so that the the openings for the dowel were on top.
After I did this I drilled a hole through the dowel to fit pegs
which will keep the paper roll from moving around on the dowel.
I added a board to the back of the original piece to make it longer.
I made a frame that created a 'window' for
the paper using reclaimed trim molding.
Stacked washers on the screws between the wood layers
make a gap that lets the paper pull easily under the trim molding.
I added D-rings to the top so the paper roll hangs on the wall.
The whole memo board got a coat of French Linen
Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. It was then distressed, vinyl lettering was added, then it got a coat of dark wax.
A vintage inspired paper roll- grocery list
that will look great in any farmhouse kitchen!
