Clipboard Copy Cat

If you follow my blog, you know that I have been clipboard crazy lately.

I have been using clipboards in my vignettes.  Here's part of my Valentine's Day Mantel.

Today I am copying a clipboard idea from Mamie Jane's blog.  Here Jane added a  couple of strap hinges to make her clipboard into a photo easel.  The clipboard stands by itself, and looks cool too.

I thought that this vintage Everflex industrial clipboard I found recently would combine well with the strap hinges.

So I drilled holes for some short but thick bolts and added the nuts on back.

Then I added a black and white photo of some of my ancestors on the farm, and stood the clipboard on the corner counter in my kitchen.

I love it!

  4. I have a bit of a clip board "problem" myself. I can't resist them when I see them at the thrift store. Love your "industrial" one :)
