12 Creative DIY Projects to Re-purpose Rolling Pins

In years past I fell in love with a carved rolling pin at a local antique shop.  I tend to gravitate towards rolling pins for some odd reason (not much of a baker) but I still have yet to purchase any, thinking I need to break down and buy me a gorgeous carved one to start my collection.   

While cleaning out my grandmother's home I came across multiple well-used rolling pins (nothing fancy) that I'd like to keep around since they belonged to grammy.   Here's a few examples of creative ways to re-purpose rolling pins into functional decorative elements for your home.
