Repurposed Table & Chair Photo Displays

7:50:00 AM

Unique photo displays are my favorite thing to make
and if you are looking for an easy and almost free project
to do then this one is for you...

I am reposting this project for new followers...

This photo holder was created from a found piece of a broken table... 

Beautiful antique furniture pieces are hard to let go of, the carving is so beautiful and I wanted to find a way to keep the carving and re-use the piece...

To create this one of a kind photo display I removed the leg, sanded and painted
the apron, then gave it coat of clear wax.

See, I told you it was easy!

I used screws and a thick black rebar wire I found at Home Depot to stretch across the length of the piece then I clipped on the pictures with stained clothespins.

It looks great here hanging on a chalkboard wall and there is nothing to it. 

It is a project that even the beginner can do.

Here is another version using the broken back of an antique chair...

This one was again painted, distressed with sandpaper, then waxed with clear wax. 

The screws are placed on each end and in the center of the chair back. 

Both of these broken antique furniture pieces 
were once headed for the trash. 

A little paint and they are now repurposed and gorgeous!
