Vintage Yardstick Message Center

2:48:00 PM

My project today is a simple one...

perfect for over a desk or in a small entry way.

I began with 1/2 of a vintage yardstick...

I added pieces to this message center as I went, 
anchoring them to the yardstick
with old pieces of hinges. The hinges act as washers for the screws and give this memo holder a little vintage industrial bling.

A chalkboard, a vintage spring that holds photos...

A vintage knob as a hook to hang keys 
and a large clip to hold a note pad...

Two sawtooth hangers on the back make it easy to hang it
wherever you may need a little message center.

This message center lasted exactly 1 day in my shop before someone came and snatched it up...

 so I made 3 more...

they are easy and inexpensive to make and look adorable!
