I love getting knick knacks, I've been collecting them for so long, but never had a good place to display them without wasting a lot of space and or covering up something. I used this tutorial to make these boards. They were SO easy to make and turned out pretty well. I didn't use the center support part, because once all the pieces are together the hot glue keeps it pretty sturdy! I made all my shelves 2 in deep and 3 in tall. After I put it all together I spray painted it because it was old advertisement boards. But I've also made one out of plain black foam core board and I don't feel the need to spray paint it, though I might cover it with fabric later to make it look fancier for my handmade knick knacks I need to display.

It was definitly worth making, and after I made the first one, it was alot simpler and quicker to make the second.

what do you think?

Oh, wow, that is so cool! I'd never have guessed what it was made out of. Your knickknacks look very happy with it.  Smiley
