Vintage Rulers Rock!


A few years back I was on a mission.

I had everyone in my family searching for rulers.

New.
Old.
Broken.

It didn't matter as long as it was a ruler.

I even had friends dropping by to visit and bringing rulers.

My friends are precious :)



I made coat racks!


A lot of coat racks!


I have a DIY here if you would like to make them too!


Want to know the coolest part of making the coat racks?

Searching for the rulers!

The rulers above were a find at Round Top.

Sweet!

Want to know something even better?

Layla and Kevin  teamed up with Heather

here at Flea Market Style.

They have some really cute ideas of their own using rulers.



Have fun!

  3. Susie, ever since I saw your coat rack I'd been looking for yard sticks to make my own. And a few weeks ago, I finally found them! For FREE! Wooo hoo. I've got a Dutch Boy Paint, Woolworth's, a matress company and more.

    Here are some pictures (scroll down about a quarter of the way)
