Vintage Ruler wall organizer

I was having trouble with papers all over my desk.  And I had a big blank wall right next to my desk.  Can you see where this is going?  Yes, a wall organizer was in order.  


I pulled out a vintage yard stick I picked up from Goodwill ages ago. I've had it for a long time and didn't know what to do with it.  So I decided to use it on my wall.  


First I cut it in half with my handy dandy miter box.


Then I drilled some small screws into each piece.


To hang the yard sticks on the wall, I used 3m velcro strips (amazon link).  


I then hung a binder flip from each screw.


It's so handy to have a place to hang papers, magazines and craft supplies.

  3. This is a great idea!. You could get 12 inch rulers so you wouldn't have to cut them too. Thanks for sharing!
