Happy summer outdoor dining!

Junk Market Style Difficulty Meter

Vintage round wire strainer
Scratched DVD or CD
Vintage or new drawer pull with hardware
One 3/16 in. nut
Ten 1-1/4 in. washers
Digital image of choice
One Avery CD/CVD label for ink jet printers
Instant glue (we used Gorilla Super Glue)


Step 1: Choose image from computer.

Step 2: Print on to label (per software's instructions) and affix to CD/DVD.


Get creative with your printed design--perhaps something cheesy?

Step 3: Screw nut onto threaded hardware and add 3 washers.

Step 4: Put screw, nut, and washers through bottom of CD/DVD.


No worries about scratching this disc. For an added bonus, use a family member's Playstation game.

Step 5: Place seven (7) washers on screw and screw on the drawer pull.


Drawer pulls can be an easy and cheap flea market find.

Step 6: Flip strainer upside down and affix CD/DVD to bottom of strainer with instant glue.

Tip: Make sure the picture you choose works with the size and shape of the disc.
