After some much-needed spring cleaning (read: complete gut job), I had a little fun decorating my office space. I already owned a few fun accessories that were buried under papers and craft supplies that I could dust off and showcase but I wanted something new for my wall. Peter ended up making me an adorable DIY Memory Display or hanging art boards perfect for letting me rotate my favorite pictures and mementos.
The project is rather simple and we utilized leftover materials we had on hand to keep the project budget friendly.
DIY Memory Display Board Supplies
- MDF boards
- Paint & Primer
- Small Nails
- Toggle Bolts
- Binder Clips
Peter cut a piece of MDF in half, and then primed and painted it. It wasn’t my dream color, not that I had one in mind but it was pretty enough. Pretty enough that I had bought it on clearance and stashed it away for a fun future project.
The boards were installed using heavy duty toggle bolts because we couldn’t install the boards on studs. If you want to minimize the dry wall mess when drilling, just hold a dustpan underneath it.
We used small nails evenly spaced across our board to hang the binder clips on. There are lots of really pretty binder clips available online but I opted to keep the project budget friendly so we just spray painted the regular ones I had and made them a pretty matte silver.
This project turned out super cute. It really helped create a pretty new space in my office for me to display fun pictures and mementos. I wanted to share this project even though it was fairly simplistic as a reminder that DIY projects and improvements don’t have to expensive or complicated.
