Hi everyone! I’m Olivia from DIY Mother! Tess is letting me share one of my DIY projects that might help you when you’re trying to make an involved recipe in the kitchen…a tablet holder! When I get the time to make a drawn out recipe, I find myself constantly grabbing my phone, asking myself “was it two tablespoons or two teaspoons?” Every time.
I figured it was high time I made myself a proper tablet holder so that my hands could finally be free to cook or bake. An added bonus is that I can also listen to songs or watch videos while I’m cleaning.
It was really easy to make, and pretty cheap as well. The best part: when you’re not using it as a tablet holder, it doubles as a dry erase board for a grocery list or general notes. Love notes, preferably. I don’t know about you, but I’m all about multi-purpose and multi-use things.
I’d love to know what you think! If you’re interested in any of my other projects, feel free to visit DIY Mother!
What you’ll need:
For the dry erase board:
10″ x 14″ piece of glass/glossy tile (I chose marble)
2″ x 6″ radius cap (also in the flooring section)
*For the base/easel:
(3) 6 inch pipes
*All in plumbing section
1. First, use the silicone adhesive and attach it to your tile. It will need to cure for 24 hours until it’s finally set, so resist temptation and leave it to dry!
2. While your adhesive is curing, start working on the “easel” that will hold the tile. Putting the plumbing parts together is super easy, but I think it would better to show you with pictures instead of try to explain all of the parts.
3. Once your easel is assembled, I would suggest spray painting it gold or silver. I didn’t spray paint mine because I actually prefer the mixed metal look.
4. Once your adhesive has cured, you’re all finished!
