I love the patina on these old blocks from the 40s and rather than keep them in a box for safekeeping, decided to make a Block-O-Blocks art piece.
Pretty simple to do - I just laid them out in the design I liked then used that amazing Gorilla Super Glue to put them all together. Go slow but sure so your base line stays straight.
Here they are hanging along the wall with some of my other pieces in my office.

Here's a fast but fun wall hanging project you can create using old wooden children’s blocks.
