Old screwdrivers installation

Materials: Ribba, looped screws and old screwdrivers.

Description: Bought a Ribba frame from IKEA and removed the glass and screwed in some looped screws into the wooden panel and too hold the old screwdrivers.

It has a nice look to it!

Got inspiration from this hack.

    @lulu, “loosen” up friend. The IkeaHackers community is made up of people with “twisted” sense of humor.

    Viktor, don’t pay attention to the bunch of tools. I know it’s hard not to pay attention especially after you just put them in a frame.. but try.

    Viktor, please ignore all these people with rude comments. They’re a bunch of tools.

    Lulu is right. Can’t you people appreciate how much creative juice and intense hard work it took to screw 4 looped screws into the frame and putting screwdrivers into them?

    This hack would prove to be invaluable during a home invasion. You would have multiple shanks at your disposal for your family to defend themselves.

    Personally, I only read the site for the comments when someone has posted a thing of questionable awesomeness. Please keep speaking your mind.

    Why does everyone have to be so rude! You don’t know what those screw drivers mean to this person. Maybe they where a depart family members and the person wanted to do something special with them. This person took a risk to share an idea they worked hard on, if you don’t like just say “it’s not for me” and move on or like your mother says “if you don’t have something nice to say don’t say anything at all”.

    You have to be really “screwed” up to work on a hack like this…

    What is up with people being so negative all the time? I would also prefer to go with a more “vintage-y” look, but on the other hand, I think these look rather poppy and quite fun. I have no problem whatsoever with seeing these as a nice decoration to any DIY workspace or even in a hallway, if it fits the rest of the interior.

    I think this could be a nice idea with antique wood-handled tools and a frame better proportioned to them. Not feeling this with the plastic dollar-store screwdrivers.

    That reminds me: My windows aren’t dirty….that’s my dog’s nose art!! Live and let live.

    Is this to hang tools in a shed or garage? Personally not at all for me if it is meant as art for a home.
