I love using old hinges to create picture or business card holders, so I dug through my box of hinges and grabbed the fence post pieces that had been sitting there for months. About an hour later, two picture holders were born.
I found these blah looking cut off fence posts at an antique show several months ago along with the other two rusty things. They're long gone, but you can see what I did with them and some other junk here.
I painted the posts and attached a perfect fitting chippy hinge to each one.
All the layers of paint keep the hinge in place.
A little bling always helps.
The other one sold already and was decorated with a cute little bow pin on top. I'm going to replace the unidentified mom with a valentine and bring it back over to the Paris Flea Market the next time I set up.
