Funky Photo Display

You just never know when a salvaged board and a few vintage curlers/perm rods might come in handy.  I knew the curlers would eventually become an altered something or other, so I wasn't about to bury them too far back in a cabinet where they'd never again see the light of day.

I was going through my stash of vintage photos when I finally decided what to do with the curlers and the salvaged board.

I had no idea what I was going to do with this 6-foot board when I picked it up at the salvage yard a few months ago.  It was too long for this project, so I cut it down to 20 inches and relocated one of the ends.  

Then I drilled one new hole in the center and filled in the smaller holes.  The other two holes were just the right size to accommodate the bottom of the curler.

A little E6000 glue was added to hold the curler in place, but wasn't really necessary because it was a good tight fit.  

The depth of the existing hole was perfect; just deep enough to still allow the button to be pushed in for the clip to open.

Vinyl letters from a huge stash I found at a yard sale this summer.

Vinyl letters combined with the old photos.  Doesn't the lady behind the B look a little creepy now?  Buddy couldn't resist getting in on the action too.
