I’d been trying to come up with a way to display my goods at an upcoming local Night Market. I use pegboard at home to keep things organized so I have tags already made for that purpose. So I went to Ikea (LOVE me some Ikea) and bought a couple cheap pegboards, spray painted them black, and made some ‘feet’ for them.
So now it’s a decent looking display that’ll work on a table top. It’s got a 15 degree tilt to make things easier to see on the bottom rows. I’ll try and figure something prettier out when I have more time but this was super quick and easy.
Nice! I like that it’s got a graceful curve, and that it fits a standardized pegboard from IKEA. Thanks for the design!
Thank you for sharing your work. Looks really nice.
Not too shabby when it’s all put together! You can buy the pegs from Ikea as well, I forgot to mention that above. I can post the SVG for the peg tag if there’s interest.
That would be really pretty but I think it would be too thin to hold anything up?
Oh, right, didn’t look at that. Sorry.
edit; maybe with an extra black acrylic for stabilization.
I could layer it on top of the other acrylic though, glue them together … hmmmm.
Great setup, especially with your statement keychains!
@gerlindeowl & @Janerlea: The .06" (or 1/16") is thick enough to hold up pegs, though, at that size. (I use it often for name badges.) However, I will note that it scratches pretty easy, so have polish on hand. Or just use a solid black and fill the engrave with paint. I achieve this look on my coasters by leaving the paper mask on and hitting it with the plastic paints by Krylon.
The chrome gold paint works well, too. I don’t seem to have a photo of it, though. MUCH cheaper with my method
I totally have interest and what material and thickness
I use medium draftboard for the peg tags.
First one is for keychains (can also work for necklaces) and the second is for earrings.
Hi Janerlea, I love your peg board stands. I would be interested in the SVG file. Thank you
Hi @kelinzee, welcome to the forum!
Normally it’s against the rules to ask people for their files, but since this is a “Free Files” post, the file is actually right there in the first post for you to download. Just right-click on it and choose “save as” from the pop-up window.
Hiya! I see Geek2nurse got here first but I was just going to say you may consider changing the file a bit once you have it. One of the stands I had snapped in transit because that front top part is too thin. Live and learn. I haven’t edited the file myself yet. You might be able to get around the issue by using a super thick acrylic. Just a heads up!
Thank you. I’ll see what I can do with it. Thanks for the update.
Im not seeing how I can save this design. Sorry, Im fairly new.
