Easy Vintage Tool Photo Display

5:30:00 AM

Today I found a great project just cleaning out the garage.

My find of the day was an old hammer head with no handle. 

Come on, you know you would have just chucked it...

But not me... I used it. 

I'm adding affiliate links so you can find products you may need to create these projects. 

I added small magnets to the back of some porcelain number tags with E6000 glue.

And that's all. 

Instant photo display.

Not sure who this guy is... supposedly a long lost relative of mine. I use his picture a lot in my displays, it's a cool pic. 

*update... Thanks to my mother... This is my great, great Grandfather.

The hammer head can be displayed up or down.

Those foxy ladies are my grandmother and her sisters. I love this photo too!

And this handsome guy is my grandfather. 

Next time before you throw it out, think about how perfect it might be given a new life. 

What started out as a garage clean out turned out to be a great chance to give an old piece a new life and take a walk down memory lane.
