Vintage Cheese Grater Organizer

One of my favorite things to repurpose 
are vintage kitchen items... they are so unexpected!

So when I saw this vintage cheese grater on Pinterest
I decided I'd give it a try.

Not sure who I can give credit to for being the first
to create one of these... but thank you for the idea
and let me take it one step further by making it my own by using reclaimed wood and a chain for mine.

I attached it to a reclaimed wine crate side and added a chain for hanging.

It is perfect to use in the kitchen

or drop a jar inside and use it to hold fresh (or fake) flowers.

The bonus is that it is magnetic so it 
can hold a cute note or photo too.





Want more? Here is one that I antiqued myself

and here is another I turned into an earring holder


And lastly this one made a great photo holder.

Thanks for visiting!

  5. This is so stinkin cute!! I'm perplexed though...what do you put in the top (which becomes the bottom -by the handle) of the grater to prevent utensils from falling through? Thank you!!

    1. Hi Lisa!
      When I mounted the grater (upside down) I dropped a block into the large end and it slipped to the bottom and works as a shelf inside to hold the vase or the utensils. Thanks for asking!

  6. It never occured to me to drop a jar inside. I couldn't figure out how to put something inside without it falling through. Thank you for being the only one to actually offer instructions.
