Clipboard Copy Cat

February 11, 2014
If you follow my blog, you know that I have been clipboard crazy lately.

Clipboard Gallery Wall
I made a Clipboard Gallery Wall.

Miniature Clipboard Ornaments
I made miniature clipboards for the Christmas tree.

Valentine's Day Clipboard
I have been using clipboards in my vignettes.  Here's part of my Valentine's Day Mantel.

Christmas Clipboards
I also used clipboards in a Christmas vignette.

Breadboard Clipboard
And I made an old breadboard into a clipboard.

Clipboard Photo Easel
Today I am copying a clipboard idea from Mamie Jane's blog.  Here Jane added a  couple of strap hinges to make her clipboard into a photo easel.  The clipboard stands by itself, and looks cool too.

Industrial Clipboard Photo Easel
I thought that this vintage Everflex industrial clipboard I found recently would combine well with the strap hinges.

So I drilled holes for some short but thick bolts and added the nuts on back.

Then I added a black and white photo of some of my ancestors on the farm, and stood the clipboard on the corner counter in my kitchen.

I love it!

  1. This looks so great, the addition of the hinges! I have some folding metal medical clipboards that I like to use with clips for clipboard displays!

  2. The displays look amazing and what a clever use of the hinges too.

  3. Now that is a fun project! I love the idea of the hinges! I think the photo of your ancestors is absolutely fabulous!

  4. I have a bit of a clip board "problem" myself. I can't resist them when I see them at the thrift store. Love your "industrial" one :)

  5. Love what you did with the clip boards!! I just might have to steal my hubby's old clip board.
