Custom wall sized clipboards





Materials: Side panels of IKEA floor display bins

Description: Find an IKEA display bin that is missing the bottom. Buy all 4 of the side pieces.

Hang them on your wall.

Buy clothespins.

Clip photos and cards and whatever else you want on your boards.

Sounds simple? it is. …but Pottery Barn charges $159 for one, so buy yours at IKEA for a song.

  1. You can buy the DISPLAY bins? Who do you talk to to get them?

  2. They were in the As-is section….apparantly missing a bottom :)

    I dont really understand what kind of product we are talking about here … “Side panels of IKEA floor display bins” …
    where can I get this from?

    LOVE this! is the as-is section in a particular place, do you know? how much did you pay for the sides?

  5. The as – is section is usually next to the checkout and has damaged, floor model and various items that are for sale t deep discounts. This project was made from a display bin that had lost its bottom, so they were selling the 4 sides in the as-is section. They were $5.

    Normaly IKEA doesn’t sell display items. So this is pretty rare.

    As an employee, I was told to throw out a bunch of never used steel wire ceiling panels with the same sort of open grid design as this hack. These fit the standard IKEA ceiling grid – about 1m by 1.5 m by a 5 cm flange that would have allowed wall stand-off.

    Thinking of all of the possibilities – hose and cable hanger in my garage; A/V cable hanger at my church; tool holder just about everywhere – I nearly cried. When I talked to Recovery later. they said that they would have loved to have them to sell.

    So yes, occasionally display parts make it through As-Is, although this is not very common. It helps to when the co-workers can imagine the possibilities!

    They look like the bedbase for the Trömso loft bed. I used to have that one, it consisted of four frames like that which had to be screwed to the frame.
    I wish I’d hung on to them now, this is a very nice idea.

  9. I made this. Loved the idea. Only thing I did different was I used only the bottom of the bin– which I found in the Ikea dumpster when I happened to drive around the building.

    Painted it light green and hung it with some brushed metal hooks that I picked up at Home Depot. Looks like a million dollars.

    The pegs look cheap and nasty though…
