    My new "Ruler Corral"

    I mentioned to my sweet husband that my rulers were always on the table in my way, or inaccessible in a drawer. He built me this great corral for them.

    What great ideas -- I don't have any edges that would work. Mine live on my pegboard for now, too.

    Brilliant! On two counts. That is a great storage solution, and of course Every husband's favorite saying, Happy wife, happy life!

    I like this. They are handy and yet out of the way. I could use about 3 of these.

    I wish he could come up with something for all of my small templates, my larger rulers are kept in an old letter file. I actually have too many large rulers and an wanting to sell some of them. Sometimes you just have to down size!

    What a creative idea...you're lucky he's handy. Your rulers look quite happy in their new home.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    Rulers are always a problem. I keep small ones in a drawer and the larger ones in a metal desk file organizer I bought at a thrift store. I really like the way your DH fixed your problem. He's a keeper.

    That is a great idea! Always handy & they have a home too when not in use. Mine hang on the wall but someday I hope to have a better set up for everything in my sewing room.

    great storage system
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Fantastic idea! I definitely want to try to make one of these, unless you loan out your husband?
