I've had a few album covers hung on the wall using frames from Michael's sized for 12" vinyl records. But I had so many more albums just sitting in a box. And I did not want to individually hang too many of them. I have been thinking of a way to fill a wall with them.
I didn't really see any products or DIY ideas that could:
- hold a lot of albums
- be cheap
- allow easy removal for playing
- allow easy re-arrangement as needed
So I ripped some 1x6 stock to do the trick.. Fastened rails to wall with screws, wood filler and paint. Less than $20 I think. Bottom of album sits on top of flat rail. Underside of rails are angled back to create a holding lip for top of album. Secure enough for me.
