Susan's PB Knock-off Tablet Holder

At Pottery Barn it's called a Cuisine Tablet Recipe Holder, is priced at $34.95 and "resembles" a vintage breadboard. If that's not an invitation for a knock-off, I don't know what is!


Susan saw this one over at Mamie Jane's and was inspired to make one of her own.
 
 
Susan already had all the pieces on hand - a bread board (truly vintage), a Scrabble tile holder and a child's building block. No fancy tools, no cutting, no measuring - just a little glue and paint!


Seriously, this just might be the easiest Pottery Barn knock-off ever!

 
I don't even own a tablet and I want one! I see all kinds of display possibilities here. Thanks Pottery Barn!
 
 
It's been dark and dreary here all week long. But just as soon as the sun pops out, I'll be heading to Main street to take preview photos of our upcoming tag sale! All the details are on the sidebar. Hope you can join us!

This is adorable, and what great timing you have! I found a couple of old-ish cutting boards that have been out in the weather, and a little moldy. I was going to throw them out, but I think a repurposing is in store ...

I wonder if Pottery Barn minds all the knock offs that creative bloggers come up with, or if they design some of their things with y'all in mind ... giving them more publicity, lol.

Love this idea! I know my daughter would love one of these!! I'll have to be on the hunt now at the thrift store/garage sales for a cool vintage cutting board :)

I just love Pottery Barn knock-offs! I wish I had a clever mind like Susan who "saw" a scrabble tile holder and child's block in this. What an imagination!

This is perfect! I like Susan's even better than the Pottery Barn one. I'm definitely going to be looking for a breadboard on my next thrifting excursion!
