Kitchen iPad Holder

Sometimes I see pins and they stay with me for months, I must make them but never seem to get around to it. This pin here from Mamie Jane's I always seem to see and every single time I saw it I thought I want to do that! Finally I did!




I made mine a little different only because I found different items.

I grabbed a cheap chopping board from The Reject Shop



Some spare corner trim from my every growing molding supplies.

Glued it on.

Spray painted it pink, I loved Mamie Jane's farm house version but sadly for me I don't have a farmhouse style kitchen.

For some inexplicable reason the entire time I was making this I had Oasis's song Roll With It stuck in my head so I cut a little vinyl with the lyrics and funnily enough it suited a kitchen theme, so how could I resist the rolling pin and timer. For the stand I just used an old photo frame hinge and back.


There you have it, an ipad holder for the kitchen, since these days I am way too cheap to buy cook books when I have an internet full of delicious recipes for free!


DIY Delight or disaster, oh I am pretty darn happy with this, I like the fact I can keep the iPad off the bench while I am cooking, Delight and another pin down, whoooot!

Thanks for reading,

Mel xo

    This turned out great, as usual. :)

  22. Great project Mel. Love your choice of verse too. I'll probably be singing that song all day in my head.

  23. Yes! I love this! I currently do it on my phone which is quite the pain. It always shuts off before I have to to read everything and I constantly have it in my hand. The quotes are great too! Love the rolling pin.
