Rusty Picture Hinge

9:54:00 PM

I'm taking a clue from my friend Laurel's  
and she has fabulous ideas!

I put my own spin on this great idea...
I started with the large hinge, a curtain ring and an old
chippy piece of wood.
(It was the end of a pergola)


I drilled a hole in the wood so I could bolt the hinge to it 
and the hinge would stand up.

I attached the curtain ring by first separating 
the hook from the ring...

I attached the hook to the top hole of the hinge.
This is where you hang the picture.

And here you go, instant trash to treasure 
hinge picture frame.

Thank you Laurel for the great inspiration!
