Belt Buckle Display


I found this cup/saucer shelving at a garage sale... it was a dark brown finish & very plain.  $5.  I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with it, but I wanted it & knew I could put it to use somehow.

& there ya go... A belt buckle display case.  

First I spray painted the entire thing red.  {It came without the backing.}  Then, using a pretty rough sand paper, I sanded it down to this distressed look.  I had Ryan cut a piece of old tin to fit the back of the shelving, then attach it.  

I am very happy with the results!

This project was so simple.  & I love how the rugged look of this really makes those buckles shine.  

 
 
 
 
   
 

They are just so pretty.  Why not display them?

  2. That is adorable! My husband had a special case built back when he was rodeoing all the time, so we have that. I think this is way cool though!

    1. Thank you! I'm still trying to catch up with life, lol. I've been so swamped with work! & My parents won those, I probably should've added that.
