Spinning version inspired by CB2′s Arch Magazine Rack

Emily was inspired by the Arch Magazine Rack from CB2 and comes up with her version of it.

She says, “I used a Snudda Lazy Susan and 1/8″ metal rods from Home Depot. I dug out my trigonometry skills to measure off chords around the lazy Susan, then drilled holes and inserted the bent rods. I bent the rods around the metal pole that supports our deck – I bought an extra rod to practice the bending – it took a couple tries to come up with a repeatable process. The Arch Magazine Rack is 9″ in diameter. The Snudda version is 15″, and it spins!”


I want to give a holler to the good folks at Grippiks, who has just joined in as a blog sponsor. Grippiks carry a range of removable surface accents with micro suction technology. In English, that simply means you can stick and remove the films effortlessly. No bubbles. No residue. No mess. And they are specially pre-cut to fit some Ikea products. N-i-c-e! Go clicky clicky on their banner on your right. They ship worldwide.

    I just clicked on that ad on the side – and I rarely do that on any blog – but I was totally in awe that there was such a product. (Then I noticed you said something about it) Who ever came up with that product to go with such a fab store like IKEA is a genius. I’m so happy for you that they have become a new sponsor. Congrats!

    I may have to go buy something from IKEA so I can use the graphics!

    The captcha I got was funny – haccula.
