Vintage Inspired Kitchen Paper Roll

A list for groceries is a must in any kitchen.

But a farmhouse styled grocery list is fabulous!

This paper roll grocery list has both charm and style.

Using pieces I had from a broken children's table
paper center, I recreated the piece to fit the look of a 
farmhouse kitchen.

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 I gave it a coat of dark wax. 

A vintage inspired paper roll- grocery list that will look great in any farmhouse kitchen!
