    Gotta love garage sale finds. Nothing fancy but I needed a small case for my less expensive pairs. I don't have much free space in my house so a wall hanger is perfect! Had fun rehabbing this. Still working on it and will post more photos soon when I finish the lighting and such.

    This sad thing started its life as a jewelry cabinet. When I got it had no shelves, no knobs, kinda falling apart. So, I painted the inside gunmetal, added a glass etch Oakley sticker, added some cool Oakley-esque oval pull knobs and cut some plexiglass shelves. The lighting I got is too deep. Going back to the depot tomorrow to try something else. Fun project!

    Thanks for checking it out and I'll post more photos as it progresses.

    Cool find.

    Always great when you can reuse something.

    I just used a block of wood and added parts from X-metal stands to make mine.

    Thanks, if the backing is strong enough you could do the same thing in your case.

    The part has a threaded whole on the back with a tab, so all you do is drill two holes (one for screw and one for tab) and your case become even more Oakley.

    I gotta measure the case. See if it's deep enough. If so... May have no choice. Lol

    The pegs are just under 3" long.

    Thank God for Uncle Jedediah, he helped find me one of them new-fangled led light things.

    Here's what I ended up with.
