Altered Rolling Pin Kitchen Decor'

Hey guys! TGIF! Whoo hoo! So glad the weekend is here! IDK why...I do not have a thing planned except staying at home and scrapping, but I always just feel happier on the weekend! Anywho, today I have an altered project to share with you today. It is an altered rolling pin. Now, I have to tell ya this is a total lift. One of my best gal pals, Cristal, created this awesome altered rolling pin and I just had to try one myself. So I asked Cristal if she would let me lift the idea. Of course, being the total sweetie she is, she did not mind at all. So a BIG thank you to my girl Cristal for letting me scraplift and for the awesome inspiration! Love ya gf!

I purchased my rolling pin at Wal Mart. I covered it with some fruity themed paper from K & Co. that I have had for such a long time. I have really been trying to use up some of my older stash and was so glad to use this. I adhered everything you see with that awesome adhesive known as Helmar 450!!!! OMG! I thought I was in love before, but I really am now! This is just the best thing! It made this project so easy and so sturdy!!! Love love LOVE Helmar 450!!! Here is a view of the project.

Up close....

I cut out the 'kitchen' with the Cricut 'From My Kitchen' cartridge. Brandon bought me this cart yesterday! They have them on sale for $39.99 at Joann if you are in the market for a Cricut cartridge. I have been eyeing this cart forever and was so thankful to finally get it! I can't wait to work with it some more!

For the edges, I pleated paper. This was another one of Cristal's clever ideas. I love the pleat look. I used some Fiskars decorative scissors for the edges.

For this next part, I recruited the hubby's help. He drilled 4 holes into the bottom of my rolling pin and then added the hooks. I hung 4 measuring spoons (1 T, 1 t, 1/2 t, and 1/4 t) on the hooks. I found these hooks at The Dollar Spot as you walk in Target. Can't beat it for a buck!

I hope you have enjoyed this project! I know I definitely enjoyed making it! I can't wait to put out my cherry dishes on my table and add this to the decor'!

As always, thanks for stopping by today! Have a fabulous weekend and Happy Scrappin'!
Pin It!
