The Best Little Sun Glass Holder In Texas (or Anywhere Else)

We had a sunny spell a few days ago and suddenly the office was cluttered with sunglasses of every size and shape!  Wendell's fetching cat-eyed number with rhinestones, Connie's tinted monocle (the woman can't loose the damn eye patch. Why would she wear conventional sunglasses!), Kathleen's vintage limited edition Amelia Earhart goggles, and Michael's designer "lemon grass" Wayfarers  to name a few!  A company meeting was held to discuss the dilemma of how to safely store the abundance of shaded eye wear we had accumulated.  We decided to throw it out to our design department as a challenge, telling them the winner would receive six pounds of organic raffia (in their choice of color mind you)!  They were off like hounds on the hunt!  Here is what they came up with!

1.) Go to your local hardware store and pick up a paint roller screen!

2.) Next flatten the angled portion (the right side in the photo above).

3.) Draw a level line on your wall with a level (hold applause).

4.) Eye balling (a technical term) or measuring (if your as anal as Martha Stewart) the distance of the farthest holes in the mesh  of the flattened section, place 2 cup hooks in the wall.

5.)  Hang the roller mesh "feet" (left end in the picture above) against the wall.

6.) Slide your sunglasses through the empty holes or empty spaces in the mesh!

Our Sunglasses, clockwise from lower left: Connie's Sun-ocle, Michael's over-sized shades, Wendell's dapper shades, and Kathleen's goggles!
