I first stumbled on a Riddling Rack last year. You can read more about the original function here.
I couldn’t believe how much they cost. Anywhere from $200-600! WOW. I forgot about it and moved on. Then a few weeks ago I thought about them again and I realized I had the perfect place to put one.
I knew there had to be instructions somewhere on the internet and after a quick Google search I found some here. Seemed easy enough. I cheated and used some left over fencing from the fence we built earlier this summer.
The whole project cost about $3. I had to go to get one piece of wood to use for the back. The whole family got involved in this one, we each took turns distressing the wood and after it was all put together, I stained it with a mix of stains to give it an older look. I could’ve cut the top part of the fence off for a clean edge but I liked the idea of letting it’s past life show through to remind us that even something we otherwise would’ve discarded could be given a new life.
I hope this has inspired you to look for the beauty and potential in everyday items.
