Old Paintbrush Memo Holder

I go through a lot of paint brushes in this business!

Many times I buy these inexpensive chip brushes in bulk.

I am including my Amazon Affiliate links to this post so you can purchase the products I used. Homeroad receives a small fee for your purchase at no additional cost to you. 

That way when I don't feel like washing them I just toss them.  But as a someone who tries to find a new use for everything, that just doesn't make sense!

This time when I left out an old paint brush that I had used for sealer, I took a closer look.

The patina on this brush was really pretty, including the rusted metal part. 

The first thing that came to mind was to make a small memo holder.

So I added a small clip to the top and then a rusty piece to act as a key hook on the bottom.

In the clip I hung a small note pad

This was actually a great place to hang an extra key in a small space. 

I added a hanger to the back and hung it up by the workshop door.

Now I even repurposed the paint brush I used to 

repurpose something else!
