I have needed a stand for my ipad and tablet since I got them. They get thrown around, abused, and are very hard to use in the kitchen when I am on pinterest making recipes. I bought one from the dollar store - piece of crap. I looked into buying one from Walmart and they want way too much for them. Enter Shanty II Chic blog. They made one!
I had some wood lying around, plus a piece that I had taken off the side table that I just refinished.
The back is a piece of wood that I got from Goodwill for $1. The bottom piece, which just screwed into the back, is the piece that came off the side table.
Then I took a piece that was in my crawl space (no idea why) and gorillia glued it to the front.
Once it was secure, I took it to the garage and debated what colour to paint it. Since I was already out there painting 2 others projects (more to come on them), I decided to just continue spraying and include the stand as well.
I was making rice crispie squares for the family, so I figured I would try it out with the tablet. Worked like a charm.
Total cost - nothing, as I already had the wood laying around the house.
Not bad for something I desperately needed but was too cheap to buy. Thanks for Pinterest and Shanty II Chic for their ideas.
