    Love it!! Just remodeled 2 bathrooms and have 2 used rods. Going to put them to use. Just grab and go-easier than taking them off pegboard to get to the ones behind the others. Thanks!!

    You are so clever! That's the best way of storing rulers I've seen. So easy to find the one you need.

    Great idea! But, watch that the sun doesn't warp your rulers.

    Great idea! One of these days, when I have a real studio instead of an 8x8 bedroom, I may steal it.

    Great idea. If you use stencils like I do, you could store them on your rod also.

    Brilliant hack! I have been using a combination of pegboard for large rulers and smaller containers for small ones. But as others have said, not ideal because you gotta keep moving ones in front to get to what you want in back.

    Your idea keeps them all together efficiently. I'm going to hunt for a place in my sewing room that I might be able implement your handy-dandy system.

    Great little setup you have there! It makes it quick and easy to see and grab the one you want, too.

    Thinking, thinking...if you have nowhere to put the tension rod, one could hang a curtain rod or dowel on a wall using a right angle shelf bracket and hang it over your cutting area.

    feffertim....I have tried every ruler taming system out there and non have really worked. Yours is the best so far. Now, I am on a mission to find a place I can put a rod and go get me some shower hooks. Thanks for sharing! And thanks to oksewglad for the tip on the shelf bracket. That's doable. In fact, you could use two, one on each end and not have to use an offsetting wall. Maybe now I will be able to find my rulers. I swear they go play at night and forget to come back to the sewing room.

    Actually, I'm having pretty good luck with command hooks on the sides of cabinets. Just have to remember to put them away when I'm finished with them...lots of luck with that one!
