Trash to Treasure: Yardsticks

Robb Whittlef shares how to turn a handful of yardsticks into useful accessories.

Candle Stands

Steps:

1. Stack cut pieces of yardsticks to create candle stands that have a fun, folk-art quality.

Secure a candle plate to the top with a screw (figure A).

Coat Rack

Steps:

1. Show off the graphic quality of yardsticks by using them as the base for a wall-mounted coat rack. Add a hook to each end to mount it to the wall.

Coasters and Frames

Steps:

1. Coasters and frames are two more fun and inexpensive accessories made from yardsticks.

2. Add magnetic strips to the back of the frame for a unique refrigerator magnet (figure B).
