Problem: I have many pairs of sunglasses that always end taking space on my desk, in my car, purse, etc… I find that they always end up outside their rightful case and collecting dust.
Solution: Find a way to but them on display. I am a huge fan of collage boards and have a few currently hanging up in my room. I recovered a large bulletin board from the storage unit and decided to get creative by turning it into a functional place to hang my shades, too. Follow these super simple steps and show off your sunnys.
What you’ll need:
1 Bulletin board
1 package of tacs
stack of old magazines*
* You can sub out any paper you desire including: newspapers, colored paper, wrapping paper (I just recommend something that you can layer)
Simply piece together pages of the background of your choice until the board is fully covered. Secure using tacs. Hang sunglasses from the tacs and choose a place to mount on wall.
Making a collage using magazines has always been something I find myself doing to feel inspired. I find myself to be much more visually stimulated by mixing and matching pieces from my favorite fashion spreads and editorials. My creating my own collection of bits and pieces, my style influences becomes more a work-of-art.
Gotta have shade!
