 The junkified ending..........

A couple of salt/pepper shakers turned photo holders.  Started out with a very tacky salt/pepper shaker, threw on some red paint, added a few rusty wires in 1, and a bent up fork in the other, tied off with some primivitized homespun and !voila! a couple things to add to the "junk" bag!

Thanks for sharing.
