Vintage Playing Cards Original Wall Art


I had been planning to do something cool with a deck of vintage playing cards when I found the right ones with really nice artwork. I got a hold of these French playing cards that were perfect. After a lot of lining up and driving in small nail tacks, the cards were in place. I used some metal came from my stained glass supplies to frame things up. I used some vintage cloth ribbon measuring tape to continue the number theme. I used some metallic silver paint and some distressing to finalize things. The hinges on top are from an antique sewing machine. I finished everything in a few coats of polyurethane.

    This looks amazing. I have a set of playing cards, not old ones, featuring the kings and queens of England. I have not wanted to use them to play cards but this would be a great way to display them.
