Kitchen Handle iPad Stand

Materials: Curtain Rod, Kitchen Handle

Description: A kitchen handle, a curtain rod holder and some hot glues makes one cool iPad stand, which works in both portrait and landscape mode. It maintains a clean minimal look with something of the modernist mid-20th century, don’t you think?

All you need are these two elements:

A white Ikea kitchen door handle
A silver/chrome Ikea curtain rod holder

Unfortunately the two particular items that I used do not seem to be on Ikea catalogue this year. But you could lookout for similar items that would work to create the same basic hack.

I hot glued the two elements together (my hot glue gun technique is a bit amateurish!), and used a few self adhesive foam stickers that I saved from something else.

My ‘other half’ uses this all the time on her work desk, and when she’s not using it I tend to shift it around to the kitchen island to use with my Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 (since this hack is agnostic).

  1. Thanks , I’ve recently been looking for info approximately this subject for a while and yours is the best I have discovered so far.
    But, what in regards to the bottom line? Are you sure about the supply?

    It’s not a curtain rod. It’s a tie-back.

    Can’t find the curtain rod on ikea’s homepage (Sweden). Does it has an item number?
