    Default Razor Storage

    I am up to four straights now and was looking for a storage/display solution and I got creative then came up with this last night.

    Wife went out with work friends and as soon as she was out the door and hit Michaels, Staples & Lowes. Minimal effort but I think I turned out pretty good and suits my purpose.



    I still have to get the rest of the Command hooks.. I bought four different kinds and settled on the one that is least obtrusive. Everything is measured and I made a small jig to mount the rest.

    Enjoy!

    Good judgment comes from experience, and experience....well that comes from poor judgment.

    That is very nice. The background is a great touch, and I like the clear plastic hooks. I agree that they are un obtrusive. Now you have me thinking. I better get a few items ticked off from my honey do list when I get home before I start looking at any me projects. It has been a while since I've ticked off anything except the wife.

    It will hold seven total.. that just means I have to acquire three more to make it complete.

    Seriously though I intentionally bought something where I could display seven razors because inevitably I would get more and then be faced with a case that would not accommodate them so future proof was a taken into consideration and a requirement for me.

    Looks really great, and as everyone prier said the background totally knocks it out of the park...

    Thanks! I got the idea from someone else who took a collage of pics and pasted them into a background. It was really easy, I gathered a bunch of pics I found online then using Photoshop I created a canvas to the dimensions of the box. Pasting all the images I used a photocopy filter to get the final look. I dropped the file onto a thumb drive and took it to Staples where they printed out two copies full size.. for $1.30. I might print out another then using lacquer to adhere it to backing material and see if it gives it a look like an old, fading ad. Still unsure about that but I might give it a shot.

    My total invested minus the Command hooks which are god-awful expensive is $31.00. I am still looking at alternatives for the mounting to lower the cost.
