Wall Board – A wood construction for my apartment

Hey Everybody,

Last time I made the “wood picture holder” to decorate my room with some pictures.
In the search for a perfect place for my finished project, I came across to this blank wall in my apartment.
Since a long time I have been searching for some decoration to give this part of my room some color.
Just a poster was not special enough.
Another problem is that I love to receive postcards, but it is really sad that they end up in my desk drawer.

So one day I was standing in front of the wall and finally I got a good idea for my problem.

I would build a card holder for my room, on the same principle as the wood picture holder.
For the back I took a wooden panel, which is 37 cm wide, 92 cm long and 0,5 cm thick.
Further I needed strips of wood, in my case they are 37 cm wide, 3 cm thick and 1,5 cm high. (For each 5 pieces.)
Before I glue my wood strips on the panel, I cut slits in them for holding cards or pictures.
Every 16 cm I fixed the wood strips on the wooden panel.
All finished!

I am so happy with this solution. An eye-catcher with practical function.

See you next time. Lots of love!

DIY – Wood Picture Holder

Hi Everybody,

Here is my latest DIY Project. I decided to decorate my room with more pictures, so I have searched for a simple way to show them. A way, where I can also switch them very easily. So I made this wood picture holder.

You Need:

  • some wood (each piece of my wood is 8 cm  Length x 7 cm Width x 1 cm Depth, but you can choose any size you want. It is easier when you take thicker pieces)
  • a saw
  • a pencil
  • some picture

First I marked with a pencil and a ruler the middle of the wood piece. Next, I took the saw and cut a slit in each (be careful to not cut through the pieces, just to the middle). Now you need just some pictures. I am a big “sneaker freak”, so I cut out some pictures of sneakers from older magazines and gluing it on some cardboard.

I can imagine that this would be also a perfect birthday gift.

Lovely Greetings! Print
