bjuron wall display

this ones from melissa, who previously gave us this bathroom remodel. now, it’s a wall display with the bjuron plant pot.

she says, “one of my co-worker collects japanese toys and miniature chair models but unfortunately she lives in a small studio and doesn’t have a lot of floor space for a display cabinet. her collection has grown so large that she needed a new way to display them and just sticking them on an ordinary shelf was out of the question for her. luckily i had an idea for her… bjuron planter boxes.

i suggested painting the inside white so that the toys would stand out well but leave the rest with the natural wood so there would be an interesting juxtaposition of the natural wood and man-made plastic toy. we selected planters of all sizes to increase the visual interest and to suit the display and size needs of different toys and collections. finally we screwed them into the wall and displayed her collections.”

    We got small plastic gadgets from Accuhang.com to hang everything in our home- from framed mirrors to wall shelves.

    Works great, very simple, no sweat. The shelve is hung exactly at the place we need it. Using those gadgets we can now create large wall arrangements with many pieces in each group.

    It would be nice if IKEA could sell it wall decor along with those plastic things already attached.

    What an absolutely cool idea! Now where can I get these miniature chairs? I love tiny chairs but I haven’t found a source for them. Maybe I’m not looking in the right places.

    Kitchen cabinets are something you use every day, yet you probably never take the time to appreciate them. They seem simple enough, but there is actually more than plenty involved behind the scenes. There are many things to consider regarding kitchen cabinet refacing, cabinets materials, finishes, door designs, and even information on hardware. http://kitchen-cabinet-refacing-design.blogspot.com

  4. Wow, what a good idea. I too have a bunch of teeny Japanese toys to display; right now the Lack shelf they’re on is swallowing them whole.

    I’d imagine that any shallow box would work well like that. The ideas are flowing now!

    it’s a sweet idea, and the boxes look like small rooms :-)

    (and i guess when the owner of both the studio and the collection thinks the boxes go well with both, then they probably do, don’t you think …?)

    Hi Jusle,

    ok the collection need a place, that the solution presented it’s simple and solve the problem, but what about the this solution regards the rest of the house? The wood colour is in line with the rest of the furniture?

    Bye Daniele
