Landing strip storage with "face recognition"
AleXX from Munich, Germany has a wonderful idea for a landing strip. The storage boxes with changeable photos are a nice touch.
He says, “I searched quite some time for a new wardrobe, but there are only really ugly or really expensive ones (or even both) on the market. So I created my own wardrobe out of the following items:
1 narrow Ivar shelf
1 Norrebo storage bench
5 Fira Boxes
5 Lillholmen Hooks
5 Österbymo frames
1 Alvine Tapet curtain
1 Irja curtain rail
1 Sandnes shoe storage
2 older magnet boards from Ikea
1 piece of plywood (covers for the Ivar)
…and plenty of screws
I varnished the Fira boxes with a clear coating. I removed the stands from the photo frames and picked two holes in the back cardboard. I pinned two screws through them and drilled holes in the front of the Fira boxes, then mounted the frames with the screws and nuts. So it is possible to change the pics, when the kids grow older and my hair gets gray.”
The rest you can view them pics on his Flickr set.
