Grain Sack Striped Ipad Stand

An ipad stand with bright grain sack pizazz...

I get so excited when I find a new cutting board at the thrift store. 

Making ipad stands from cutting boards are just about my favorite thing to repurpose.

It is probably because I am quite the ipad addict. I use mine
for almost everything... reading magazines, blogs, books,
the weather, shopping, movies, recipes... you name it. 

Here is my latest cutting board painted white and 
ready for the next step.

I used DecoArt (affiliate link) satin paint and washi tape to paint a grain sack stripe down the front of the board.

A scrabble shelf holds the ipad securely.

A piece of driftwood and a hinge made the perfect 
collapsable stand for the back. 

A matching grosgrain ribbon secures the stand.

I had a lot of fun making several ipad stands for my Etsy Shop, they were so popular just about all of them sold in minutes!

 I hope the new owner of this one is enjoying her purchase.

They securely hold your ipad or reader for movie watching
but my favorite thing is to use it for reading recipes in the kitchen. 

All of my recipes are now on line and the stand holds
my ipad securely and away from 
the mess while I read the recipe.

One of the best parts is the collapsable stand 
that makes it easy to store away!
I hope you enjoyed this project and you'll take a look at my Amazon Shop for craft supplies I recommend. Also while you're here please sign up for the Homeroad emails on my sidebar so I can send my latest DIY post straight to you.

  1. so cute Susan! I don't have a cutting board to repurpose...and I don't have an iPad. :( how sad is THAT!

    yay for quick Etsy Sales!

  2. I don't have an iPad either - doh! But I do love your stand. The colored stripes are just so bright and cheery!


  3. So cute! I always want to splurge for an iPad after I see one of your stands.

  4. Such a cute idea. I too love my iPad and know I would use one. I must start looking for a cutting board.

  5. Love it! I have an iPad stand that looks like a cutting board...and now I so want to paint stripes on it.

  6. I've been stock piling cutting boards. I think I have three or is it four? by my kitchen desk now. I even used one for bread once!
