I was looking  for simple, yet nice way to display some records on my wall. My main requirements were that it was cheap,  that I could easily take the records down to play / change the display, and that no part of the record would be at risk of being damaged.

Here's how I did it:

1. Take four 13"stretcher bars (used to stretch canvas for paintings) that I picked up here for $1.00 each

2. Assemble to make a 13" square

3. Apply one sticky side of velcro strips to the four corners of the square and expose the other sticky side

4. Stick a record that is in a nice plastic sleeve (opening on the top) to the sticky part





The end result: a simple frame that allows me to easily swap out records.

Next, I'll be filling in the gaps in the wood and painting it with a nice white enamel.

What do you think?
