Dignitet display

3 dignitet curtain wire kits

As a frantic hoarder of tickets, postcards and other bits of general stuff, I was looking for a practical, attractive way to display (and rotate) treaured mementos.

The Dignitet curtain wire system provided the perfect solution. Simple.

    Love this too. Had a blank wall in my house and have replicated this over the weekend to great effect! And everyone I show seems to love the idea too. Mucho kudos!!

    i’ll reproduce this great idea today since i can’t throw away postcards and tickets and my magnetic board looks way sozzled. thanks for sharing!

  4. Great idea! I was looking for a way to display our kids’ art work and was thinking frames but I like this idea much better.

    the curtain ring clips are also ikea, part of the dignitet system.

    Speaking of clips, where did you find the clips? Are they an IKEA item?

    If you get some of those crafty foam shapes and put them between the clip and the postcard, that might help

  8. love it! this would be so great for kids’ art projects!

    The only problem I’ve noticed with this system (I just did this two weeks ago!), was the clips imprint the postcards slightly.

    Great idea. I love this system in general.

    after submitting this, i did a quick google search and realise now that this is far from an original idea! still, such a simple and fun display should be shared me thinks.

    jennie, we are yet to see how well the plan to rotate works; so far, i have just added. ah well, we have plenty of wall height to go skywards! :0)

    Kudos Shel! This is one my favorites in a while…especially since I’m like you and just CANNOT let go of anything that makes me feel the least bit sentimental. My problem is that I don’t think I’d be very good at rotating my trinkets; I’d probably just end up adding more wires :-p
