Grandma's Rolling Pin Gets a New Purpose
I pulled my grandmother's rolling pin out of the drawer and wanted to use it somehow so I could enjoy it along with the memories of her amazing pies.
I looked for various mounts to use and liked the finished look of drapery support brackets. The spacing is perfect for my project.
And they slipped right over the handles. You can find them in different finishes. The black accents well with my decor. You can faux finish as well for a different look.
I began by measuring and marking the holes where I wanted to mount the pin. I choose my Boos cutting board, but you can mount them anywhere you want.
Drilled my pilot holes.
Took the brackets apart and mounted according to directions. Quite a simple project and only cost me $5.00 for the bracket set at my local hardware store.
And I am done. A nice towel rack that reminds me of her and works perfectly with my decor.
This project took me about 15 minutes. Hope you enjoy.
Enjoyed the project?

certainly would like too. My great grandfather made the one I have the handle is super chunky wonder if they make larger brackets or possible one to allow it to just cradle it
