I have a collection of wooden rolling pins and I repurposed one into a fun window valance during my current diy kitchen makeover.
Here's the supplies that I needed: a rolling pin, a hammer, a finishing nail, red paint, a red marker, and some 1 1/4" hooks.
I wanted to have a phrase on the pin so I printed it out on my computer, and outlined the letters with a finishing nail using a hammer.
Here's what it looks like.
Then I simply connected the dots with a red marker.
The wooden handles needed a little colour.
And I needed a few holes for the hooks.
And then I hung it up in the window.
I hung some of my vintage kitchen gadgets so it looks like a fun window valance. I can easily reach the gadgets and I can change them as I like. The whisk on the right isn't vintage, but I'm on the lookout for one now.
