Camera LUNS

Materials: LUNS Writing/magnetic board, two 7″ wireless camera monitors

Description: While looking for a message board at IKEA, I came across the LUNS board and liked that it served as a key rack as well. When I brought it home and opened the packaging I saw that it only came with two hooks. This would be a problem because our big family has many sets of keys. So instead of the two key hooks that came with the board, I used five brass cup hooks I had lying around.

Don’t worry– there’s more to this hack.

A few days after I put up the LUNS magnetic board up in my kitchen, I bought a wireless Uniden surveillance system for the house and had two camera monitors set up on the counter close by. They started getting in the way so I was thinking about hanging them on the wall when I realised they might fit inside the mail compartment on the bottom of the message board. I unplugged one of the monitors, set it inside, and voila: it was a perfect fit!

I placed both monitors inside and added some scrap cardboard to the back so it was a tight fit. The power cables looked messy so I later decided to run the wires behind the wall to the power outlet underneath. I had to drill a small hole through the board to run the wires through but I didn’t have to make any other modifications.

    How did you add the hooks? Did you need to drill extra holes?
    Thanks for replying.

    Sorry, I should have included the model number in the description. It is Uniden UDW20055.

    I just want to say thank you for making me realize my board is magnetic too! I thought it was just a chalkboard and have had it for two years. My fridge will be so releaved!

    Very cool. Care to list your cameras model number? I’d be interested in looking up the monitor dimensions (I’ve been looking to purchase some security cameras for a while)
