Junky Picture Holder

A few weeks ago I was in the mood to tackle some of the little junk that was cluttering up my workbench. There was no time to hunt anything down, I just wanted to work with the junk that was right in front of me.

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.
