This one started with a crookedly printed vintage metal clock face.  
I was lucky enough to run across this late 1960s Coca-Cola can that I cut and flattened.
Good ol Prince Albert tin cut and flattened with some measuring sticks.
A small vintage horse cookie or tart cutter and a slice of an old Prince Albert tin.
Old watch faces are always cool.
A friend sent me this old bell and it worked perfectly for a functional bell hanger.  Just tap where the red arrow displays.  Old brass letter stencils compliment the function.
Whats a kitchen, game room, basement or patio without a bottle opener!
I used some vintage cloth measuring tape to wrap this project up.

I ran across some good baseboard pieces so I went to town with different colors and heavy sanding and aging.  The rest is a mixed bag of parts, vintage items and accents.  All the coat hangers feature different vintage garden faucet handles.  The two holes in each piece are meant to screw into the wall at a stud location for added strength.
