(from Pottery Barn)
First let me say that I think this is brilliant. Utterly brilliant.
Secondly let me say that I am not going to spend $44 on this piece of brilliance (and yes that is how much it cost, even on sale once you add in all the extras.)
Why won't I spend that money? you ask.
Well here are some reasons.
1) It's too country/Italian villa knock-off for me. I would try to rip the fork off and then spray paint the whole thing red or mustard if I bought it.
2) I am still recovering from birthday parties/plumbing bills/summer camp/ blogger retreat expenses. I am pretty sure my bank account will bounce back just in time for Christmas.
3) I have faith that my crafty community of DIY'ers and Pintererst Fanatics and Creative Bloggers will come up with a less expensive, much cuter version of this. Perhaps they already have.
So, here is my request: HELP! I really would love to have some sort of contraption like this in my kitchen. But I would like to spend half the money and have it be twice as cute. If you can find me a DIY link to a project like this or if you can create one yourself I will be eternally grateful.
I will also send you a lovely care-package filled with crafty and creative goodies.
The DIY gauntlet has now been thrown down. Crafters, start your drills.
