DIY Grocery List Roll

9:04:00 PM

The last grocery list I made was pinned 3K times
and sold in about a minute... 


I knew I was on to something... so I made another one!

Not that it's sibling should need to compete, this one is different, has it's own personality. 

I like both of them equally...

This one has just a little more glam...


The design is a little different and can be made with items you may already have around you house...

The basic mechanism is... a curtain rod...plain and simple. 

It can be found at any thrift store... and was.

I attached the curtain rod hanger to the board just like
I would if I were to hang curtains... The bling at the ends are curtain rod finials attached to a painted dowel. 

One side is removable with the turn of a screw to change the paper.


I painted the board and the metal with French Linen
Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, the paint that truly sticks to almost anything!

When the French Linen was dry I gave it a color wash of Paris Grey. 


A color wash is achieved by using a dry brush of the Paris Grey and a spray bottle of water.  Just wet the wood then use just a small amount of paint all over your project. Use a rag to rub off the paint and you will be left with a great Restoration look.

I sealed the project with a matte sealer and I really love the color.


The roll of paper is purchased from Amazonit is easel paper for a children's easel. 

The grocery list hangs on the wall with 2 D rings.
