Vintage High Jump Photo Ledge

Pin It

Many of you have asked what the long wooden object across the bottom of the new fabric-covered bulletin board is.

Well, it's about 9 feet long. It has a groove on each side...

...and holes every inch on the front side.

If the piece is held upright, the inches are numbered from bottom to top, and it normally stands in a base like the one below.

If you stand a pair of them up in their bases and hang a bar across them, you would have...if you haven't already guessed from the title of this post...a vintage high jump set {kind of like in this photo}!

I wondered if this piece of the set, placed horizontally, could be used as a ledge to hold clipboards, artwork, pens, and tacks. What do you think?

  6. outstanding idea! So amazingly interesting. Thanks for sharing this tidbit :)

  7. That is an amazing vintage/antique piece! I did high jump and hurdles in school, and I can tell you our high jump was not as cool as that one (too modern, I guess - I prefer OLD!).

    Love your studio, its is looking really good!



  8. What a cool piece, not only a interesting conversation piece but it looks so great as decor!
