How to Make a DIY Kitchen Ipad Stand

Today I'm revisiting the ipad stand idea.

A few months ago I made an ipad stand for myself. I decided to see if I could sell it at the local flea market... well it sold in seconds. So I'm made a couple more.

I started out with 2 old cutting boards from the thrift store. I added a stand to the back with old hinges and a Scrabble shelf to the front to hold the ipad.

I gave the boards 2 coats of Annie Sloan white chalk paint then aged them with dark wax and a little distressing.

I'm not stenciling these because I want them to be more generic with a vintage feel. By leaving the stands aged and distressed, they will look great in most kitchens.

The collapsable stand in the back uses a cotton ribbon 
to make the stand adjustable.

The ipad fits perfectly in the stand and is very sturdy.  



The next time you use the internet for recipes when cooking, think about a stand to hold your ipad.

  1. Susan such a swell idea, looks like you've hit jackpot. I especially love the juxtaposition between the distressed, rustic feel of the wood and pencil against the high style sleek ipad - it's a perfect sign of the times. Great work.

  3. They sold like hot cakes because they are so useful. I use my ipad all the time for recipes and it's in a case but the case slides down. I have my wood boards all ready to make one, maybe this weekend?

  4. I love the idea of a cutting board with a handle for this. I have an iPad mini - I'm off to search for mini cutting boards :)

    Thanks Susan!

  6. Those really are stunning and such a smart idea! I don't have an iPad though. I'd use mine to hold a magazine or recipe book. =) Not surprised they sold like hot cakes!
