Anyone have any idea what this piece of hardware is called?
I was browsing around an antique mall last weekend and found 12 of these pieces in one of the booths.
I thought they were interesting and the price was right so I purchased all 12.
Now the fun part.....repurposing them into something new!
Project #1: Chalkboard
The hardware makes a great place to hold the chalk.
Project #2: Candleholder
Four of the hardware pieces were attached to a piece of wood to create an industrial looking candleholder.
Project #3: Serving Tray
Screwed to the bottom of a piece of wood, the hardware makes great handles for a serving tray.
Project #4: Frame Holder
I used three hardware pieces on a piece of scrap wood to create a holder for some framed maps.
Project #5: Brace for iPad stand
The angle on the hardware makes it perfect for a brace for another iPad stand. I still need to decide on a paint color for the stand.
Project #6: Picture Holder
Add a magnet to the back of the hardware and it's a perfect photo holder.
I painted it with chalkboard paint to personalize it with my granddaughter's name.
I really need to check with someone at the hardware store and see if these pieces are still available. I would like to make more of these projects for my booth.
It's cold and snowy here today so it's been a great day to stay inside and create....
Hope you're staying warm wherever you are!
