    That looks awesome! I'm thinking of how I could make something like this work for me.

    I was visiting my sister in law she used a similar system to store her hundreds of painting stencils. Even as I flipped through them, I did not think, 'gee this would be a great way to store my rulers.' Seeing your set up, makes me think of other ways I can use my many pot hooks.

    I have only a few rulers; I use un-bent paperclips hooked over binder clips attached to my table. Yours is a *way* prettier solution!!

    I just love your idea. Thought I saw this before? Maybe something similar. Anyway, I tried to figure out a way to incorporate it into my sewing room but so far no luck.

    I have mine on a pegboard too but it doesn't work that well for me.

    I like that system. It looks easy to find the one you want!

    I use command hooks and store my rulers on the back of my sewing room door, works great..they hold 2-3 rulers on each hook..keeps them out of my way, and safe from falling..

    I use a metal ring used for hanging scarves. The rulers have a hole in them and with the carabiner style opening, I just slip them on the ring and hang it in my closet. I just flip the ruler I want to use to the opening and remove. Tada! All in one place and doesn’t take much space.
