Repurposing Vintage Rulers

Lately, any home goods, accessories, or crafting supplies with a sewing theme catches my eye. You can just image how I instantly fell in love with this vintage yardstick lampshade from Roost Living when I first saw it on Poppytalk.

At 320 GBP ($521), that puts it out of a price range for just about everyone I know.  But take a look at this cool DIY table also using vintage yardsticks from Country Living!  I’m sure you could apply similar principles from this tutorial to making the lampshade above.
