I have several vintage cameras I've been wanting to display. My goal is to get my son's room painted and display the cameras in his room. Well, I've had the paint for his room a couple of months now and have yet to open a can, so I decided to hang a couple of the cameras in my bedroom until I work up the energy to get his room painted.
I started with two of these bullseye architectural molding pieces.
When I bought them they were stained wood. I painted them white and distressed the edges.
To form the shelves I used a couple of mortise locks and used them in the same way as the project I posted about here. The faceplate of the locks were placed on the molding pieces and screwed in place to form the shelves.
I added hangers to the back of the molding and hung the shelves on the wall.
I then sorted through my vintage cameras and found two that fit on the shelves.
The shelves by themselves looked a little lost on the wall so I grabbed an old picture frame and hung it on the wall to frame out the shelves.
I still thought it needed something to finish it off so I found a 1950's photo of my Dad and one of my Mom and tacked them to the wall with decorative upholstery nails.
I'm thinking this may never make it's way into my son's room.
