Wall Board – A wood construction for my apartment

IMG_7975

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.

Very easy: DIY Mobile Phone Case

Zusammengefügetes Bildcopy Hey Everyone,

I know that this may be too late, but you learn from making mistakes! On the way home my Iphone dropped so I decided that I really need a mobile case to save the rest of my phone. 🙂

I wanted a case, which is not separated from my phone, because I know it just takes two days and I will lose it. The second important thing is, that the case should not just protect the back, but also the front.

Here is how I made this:

You need: A mobile case that fits for your your phone, a piece of leather, double-face tape, elastic band

Step 1: Cut the piece of leather in the right size, make sure that you also cut out the corner for the phone camera.

Step 3:

At the end, very important, first attach the elastic band at the double-face tape and after that stick it onto the leather piece.
