Copy Cat Revisited

First things first. Jane of  Mamie Jane's put together a unique photo display, please see her post: Repurposed Metal File Tool. I totally fell in love with her project. Below, my copycat of Jane's project.

I found a box of used files at an estate sale. Looked in my box of misc supplies and found a pack of round magnets. Couldn't find any old photos so went to Karen's Graphics Fairy blog and printed out a few different old portraits. Picked a few pieces of 2x4 out of my scrap file, (painted, waxed, sanded a bit the wood with Paris Grey and dry brushed Old White (Annie Sloan) and drilled a few holes). Pounded the handle end of the files into the wood. Added the pictures and magnet. Done deal.

See my original post on the file Photo Holders here.

Also linking with Bunny Jean - this is her 50th Linky Party. Congratulations Bunny Jean. Its also a pleasure to link with Judy at DIY by Design. Joining in with Nutmeg Place, a new party for me.
