Ruler Up

Hey, I have a question for you: What would you do with your old wood rulers??

Yes, yes, it’s not a mistake…The lovely old wood rulers that once were good friends of each kid school’s back pack come back to life big time.

If you happen to save some from your old school days…I gathered here a collection of some brilliant ideas which we can use with this “geek” tool.

So…. what do you think ? Isn’t amazing ??  I love wood items … and if they are old even more.

    Thanks so much for including my overhauled sewing cabinet drawer dispensers! Lots of great ideas you put together here. Yardsticks are so much fun to work with.
