Vintage Yardstick Message Center

My project today is a simple one...

perfect for over a desk or in a small entry way.





I began with 1/2 of a vintage yardstick.

I added pieces to this message center as I went, anchoring them to the yardstick with old pieces of hinges. 

The hinges act as washers for the screws and give this memo holder a little vintage industrial bling.

A chalkboard, a vintage spring that holds photos.


A vintage knob as a hook to hang keys and a large clip to hold a note pad.



Two sawtooth hangers on the back make it easy to hang it
wherever you may need a little message center.


This message center lasted exactly 1 day in my shop before someone came and snatched it up.

So I made 3 more,
they are easy and inexpensive to make and look adorable!
