Studio Project: Work Station Ruler

Earlier this year, I had received a free yard stick and thought I could use it for a project at some point.  While working on my new studio redo, I finally figured out how I could use it!   All I needed was a couple of Command Strips (I used what I had in my stash) and the ruler.

I haven't shared my new studio yet because it's not quite ready, but I bought 2 of these Linnmon tables (the table tops come in different sizes and you can choose whatever legs you want).  These tables have a nice, flat edge that was perfect for adhering the yardstick to!  I figured that it would be good for measuring out fabric, ribbon, etc.

I attached a clear command strip to the end that would be at the very end corner (so you wouldn't be able to notice it sticking out as much).

And then I attached a regular, white piece to the other end.

And ta da!

If I ever decide to take it off, the Command strips will make it really easy to remove it without any damage to the table.  Woot!  I can't wait to be done with getting this room together so I can finally use it for projects.
