Finds Display Idea.

Post by stanslad » Fri Feb 16, 2018 10:15 pm

Hi All
The other half came back from Ikea a few days ago with some deep picture frames,
they are called Ribba & do them in a few sizes with an inch depth, but a lot of other places do this type as well,
after sorting her pictures out & putting them up, I had a play with the one left over,
lined the back with plastic covered foam from a craft shop & put a selection of the different livery buttons all found detecting in, cut a small hole in foam for the buttons that still had loops, a squirt of craft glue from the hot glue gun that can be removed & picked off button with no damage in future if required, put it in frame when glue had set & cooled,
then held it against the wall to see what it's like, then heard her say, "don't you bloody dare put it there, put it in your study with the rest of your rubbish", oh well, so that's where it is!
showed the old chap today & he said that's a coincidence I got you a book for £4 out the charity shop up town yesterday with some of those crests in, so a bit of button research to do then I told her & she replied "your getting older & sadder babe",
the other halfs just don't understand!

Cheers Phil
She wasn't that eloquent when I said I'll put it on living room wall, I posted the edited version!
funny that she takes an interest if it's silver or gold I bring home,
It could be worse, like if she wanted to go detecting with me, nooooh! :-O

I thought about taking my other half detecting with me because she is excellent at bringing up stuff everyone else has forgotten about :D

Smart. I might give it a go with all the hammys i found so far this year but they probably dont make one big enough. :D
Seriously though it looks really good, you got the spacing out perfect.

Lovely collection, nicely mounted and displayed.

I'd be very happy with that.

Thanks for showing.

Nicely done.
Charity shops can be useful for reading resources at a cheap price.
Well Done ::g

Thank you for the kind replies,
got some more frames now & when weathers to bad to detect will work on the same idea with buckles, coins, thimbles, rings, army cap badges etc,
good luck in those fields all.
