Junky Rusty Repurposed Pulley Creation

This one is for all the junk lovers out there, a little outside the box and a fun project to inspire you to repurpose the random pieces you've been collecting. 
Junky Rusty Repurposed Pulley Creation

I gathered a whole bunch of rusty and vintage pieces I had laying around the workshop. A rusty pulley, some galvanized tags, a metal ball chain, and a few broken jewelry parts. I began by threading the metal chain through the rusty pulley.

On each end of the chain I attached a piece of broken jewelry then added a galvanized tag. I used a metal clip to attach a piece of  measuring tape and a vintage flash card. The tag works as a tiny clip board.
