Pinned and Done! {Wooden Twine Holder}

I want to send out a heart-felt "thank you" to all of you who shared your stories, wrote well-wishes and are sending up prayers for my son while he's at basic training.  I had no idea so many of you have been where I'm at as a mom and have grown sons who've already been-there/done-that.  It really does my heart good to hear your boys survived and are better men for it.

Okay, enough about me!  Do you have a mile-long list of projects on your Pinterest boards that you want to make?  Mine is probably closer to 2 miles long, and I know I'll never do them all, but when I discover I have most of what I need for a project - I'm all over it!

Today's "pinned and done" project is a wooden twine holder that I knew would be easy to duplicate.
Here's the inspiration photo that I pinned.
Sadly, the original source is a little sketchy, as the link just takes you to the photo again and searching didn't yield any results either (if you know - please tell me!).
I had a leg left over from all the chair projects I shared with you a few weeks ago, so I just bought a little round wooden base at Hobby Lobby, and screwed them together.  I drilled a hole at the top for the scissors to fit in.
Since the woods didn't match, I painted mine white, and called it, "Done!"
Have you "pinned and done" any projects lately?
