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.

See you next time. Lots of love!

Lasercut – DIY Necklace [Continuation]

Hey Everyone! Here is a continuation of the ‘Geometric – DIY Necklace’.

First of all – Architectural Ornaments Are The Best Inspiration You Can Ever Get!

Besides the geometric design I have experimented with many other designs. I have a thing for Art Nouveau, so many of my designs have a strong Jugenstil/Art Nouveau look. It is so simple and unique to create your own designs on AutoCAD, but if you are not familiar with AutoCAD or using a Lasercutter we have so many resources nowadays that you can come across beautiful small designs at any store. Once you have a design you can then ensemble it together into a necklace or earrings. So here are some other creations that I have made.

You can even purchase HERE a few of the ensembles on Etsy.

Inspiration: Old design books from the library, Art Nouveau books, Architecture Section in the University library, Interior Architecture, Architectural Ornaments.
