Magnet Picture Holder

So what could you possibly get when you have these items?

A 8x10 picture frame, a piece of sheet metal, black tole paint, and a 2x2 screwed to a 1x4 .

You get this.....

And this is how I did it.

I found the 2x2 and 1x4 already assembled @ the lovely DI for 1.00!
But you could easily cut those pieces out and screw them together! 

Then I painted the stand.....and sanded the edges!

I added this piece to the top.

Next I had to cut the sheet metal down to fit inside the frame.
I used wire snips. (Mr. B's, heavy duty snips)
Then framed the sheet metal.

Then I pin nailed the frame to my base stick.

Add some ribbon, a cute magnet or two, and a picture....

And you have this goody to enjoy!


I had the sheet metal, frame, paint, brush and knob.  I only bought the wood.
Now to find a permanent place to put it!
I could even use it as a recipe holder by my oven too!

Now go make something FABULOUS!!
