Form & Function

Utilizing Wall Space for Display

I confess. I love rocks. As a child I loved to grab my empty coffee can and hunt for them in the desert for hours. I would bring them back to show my grandpa. I have a pretty large collection and I wanted to figure out how to display them without taking up room on a table or shelf.

I took a 4″ x 4″ piece of wood and cut it into 2″ and 6″ lengths to make room for the spheres against the wall. Next, I stained them with a mahogany stain, tinted them black and finished them with a matte varnish. Finally, I super-glued rubber “O” rings on the top to keep the spheres in place. I plan to paint the wall a cool gray that I like too.

This was a fun project. It was nice to use my creativity in a new way. I encourage you to try something different. Be creative and have fun.
