Beautiful DIY Display Cases
Display Case for Doll Collections
Some of us loved to play dolls back then when we were younger. If you too have some doll collections, don’t let them hide in a crate.
Create your own wooden boxes with glass doors. Place a doll in every box.
Or, build a huge wooden cabinet that can contain all of your dolls. The glass doors will show everyone how cute your dolls are while protecting those little babies from dust.
Big Display Case for Watch Collections
If you have an open space on your wall, leverage it to hang your wooden framed watch case.
The wood framing glass door will bring elegance to your interior. And when you use it to display your watches, the elegance will enhance.
Group the watches properly. Display the casual ones on the top row and the formal ones on the lower rows. Add some lighting inside the case to make it look awesome at night.
DIY Display Cases for Your Favorite Shot Glass
Shot glasses you gathered from around the world would be a great collection to display in your house. Build a standing display cabinet made of wood and complete it with a glass door.
Fill it with all your shot glasses and place the cabinet close to your home bar.
If there is limited floor space, mount the cabinet to the wall but make sure it will stay strong and won’t fall down.
Handmade Display Case for Sunglasses
Wooden board is the material you can use to build the amazing sunglasses case. Make two symmetrical holes where you can place your sunglasses.
Or you can attach some wooden racks to the wooden board.
The small shelves can carry your sunglasses’ pockets. Paint this display case in your favorite color or in any color that matches your room. Mount it carefully on the wall and let it be your room’s centerpiece.
Cute Pastels Display Case
This display case is extremely unique. It has pastel colored racks and cabinets that are covered by wooden framed glass doors.
Build your own retail display case like this one by building the inner racks from woods and then painting them in pastel colors.
As for the wooden and glass frames, leave the woods in the natural color. Add lighting effects inside and let your clothes, shoes, or the other collections inside look shiny.
Awesome DIY Display Cases for Guitars
Guitar case here is for those who love collecting many types of guitars. If you have some guitars to display, build the display case by using woods that have natural wooden texture.
Mount strong iron hooks to hold the guitars to the wooden bar inside this cabinet.
Add an extra drawer under the display cabinet to hide the extra guitar if the hooks are full and there is no more space in the cabinet.
Cool Display Case for Your Knife Collections
Displaying your knives in an open space like the one you can see in the movie Knives Out is not a good idea. Your knife may hurt your pet, kid, or anyone else.
Instead, consider building a rustic styled wooden display case with glass a door to show your knife.
Fill the wooden case with all of your knife collections and make sure you always shut its door. Add a lock system to the display case to make sure no one can open it and misuse the knife.
Handmade Display Case Made of Acrylic
Keep in your mind that this display case cannot hold heavy things. But small and lightweight collections can be placed inside this display case.
Build your own display case from acrylic by completing the racks with some steps.
Those steps will show your collections in different levels so that everything will be visible. Complement the acrylic DIY display cases with lamps and your collections will be more outstanding.
