Clip-it-up wanna-be

So there is no way DH would let me spend the $ to buy a clip-it-up as cool and functional as they are! Sooo... I found a few tutorials on how to make my own, and viola!

I have to give MAD props to the people at RONA who made making this a dream. They chopped, and drilled for me, and threw in some extra wood pieces for stability under the base for free! Love them!

Anyhow, I ordered a cute cabbage finial from online, and spraypainted it a happy yellow. LOVE!

And as for clips? Well I needed a cheaper alternative than the real things, soooooo I went to a supply store and grabbed these self-adhesive plastic tab hooks for next to nothing. I have to say I'm proud of myself for finding such a cheap alternative! :)

Of course it has waaaaay more stuff on it now.. lol.
