Thrift Shop Find

I have been wanting a holder/stand for my beadrollers (graphite bead shapers for you non-bead makers) for a long time.  I have been wanting something that would keep them all neat in one place, and wouldn't take up too much space.

I was at a local thrift shop a few weeks ago and saw this old teaspoon rack and figured it would be just the thing - it cost a whole $1.00.  My husband cut out the middle row, reamed out the slots a little bit and hung it up for me.  The bead rollers all fit in sideways, and I can see the names I have printed on the sides, and it is just a few feet from my work table.  It is perfect - I love it!  We couldn't have made something better from scratch.  There is one slot left - I guess I need to purchase another roller now - lol!

that's fantastic! I don't have enough of those things to need one... but very cool!

Genius! What a super way to reuse something old in a new way...and such a bargain too!

Thanks, I always love it when such a simple thing ends up a solution to a dilema. I have been just piling the rollers on my torch table, and I knew that one day one of them would take a tumble to the floor (concrete)!!
