Hanging Pulley Photo Display

I love a good DIY challenge so I was so excited to have another blogger send me some seemingly random items and then have the opportunity to transform it into something cool. When I saw the items I fell in love with the pulley! Nothing like that is in any of the thrift stores around here. And I'm so happy that I was able to make this awesome photo display with it.
I love how it is rustic and useful and just so unique too!
This is what I started with: A green plastic platter, a wooden thingy about the size of a place mat and this super awesome vintage pulley. This pulley. I am in love with it!
I began by gluing my wooden placemat to the platter.
I bought some sisal rope and threaded this through the pulley and then glued it to the back of my platter.
On the front of my platter I attached two of these really cute Clipboard Clips.
I just love how easy it was and how it turned out. The industrial touch is perfect for our sense of style. For a full list of supplies you can click the link below to visit Simply Designing.
