REPURPOSED POT RACK TO PHOTO DISPLAY



THIS WAS THE POT RACK I STARTED WITH I PICKED IT UP AT THE 
THRIFT STORE FOR A 
COUPLE DOLLARS


I TOOK OFF ONE OF THE ARMS
AS THE OTHER ARM WOULD WORK 
TO HOLD THE RACK ON THE WALL.

I PAINTED IT WITH THE
SILVER HAMMERED PAINT TO 
GIVE IT THAT GALVANIZED LOOK,
ADDED SOME OLD FAMILY PICTURES
THAT I GAVE A SEPIA TONE LOOK TO IN PHOTOSHOP AND USED BADGE HOLDERS TO HOLD THE PICTURES

 THIS IS WHAT I ENDED UP WITH





I LOVE THE WAY IT TURNED OUT
HOPE YOU LIKE IT!

  3. I like it. Up here in Northern California - the term "Pot Rack" has another meaning... I was laughing. Great idea for a repurpose.
