Here is an old handsaw that I picked up at a flea market, that my hubby thought I was never going to do something with.
I got this idea from Carlene @ “Organized Clutter”. A very inspiring blog that I’m now following. Carlene is so creative with her junky thrift store finds.
This repurpose was inspired by Carlene’s Chippy Cabinet Board Grater Photo Display.
I know you say a saw is nothing like a grater, and that is true. But after digging through all my thrifty finds that was the only thing I came up with that was metal.
And seeing that it is a saw, some may think it’s a little odd hanging a saw in your living area to display pictures on, that’s when I decided to make it a honey do board.
Now another dilemma , button magnets wouldn’t look right. So off to the garage to see what I could come up with. Not much, one nut, washer, and small corner bracket. (I need to buy more nuts).
Hmm what to use? I know, I know…smashed bottle caps (I knew they would come in handy for something.
Now having everything I needed for this repurposed handsaw project, I commenced to sanding and cleaning up the saw blade. Added a acrylic wash to the handle, and made my magnets.
I love how it turned out! I’m taking it to my booth today, and going to look for some more old rusty junk ;-D
What do you think? Doesn’t it make a cute honey do board?
