In my shop is an old metal shelf for POSCA pens that has been missing its side panels for a long time. At first, I wanted to exchange the shelf for a more recent model but then I suddenly had an idea: I could fabricate small shelves and attach them to the sidewall of the shelf with scew-on magnets. This way, I would immediately gain more space to display additional products in my shop.
My father cut the roof lath to the required length and I painted them black. After the paint had dried, I used countersunk screws to attach the magnets to the wooden boards. Just two magnets type CS-S-18-04-N on one shelf are enough to hold the small bottles of glitter glue (Crystal Drops by Nuvo). It looks great!
By the way: Aside from the paints displayed on the shelf, you will also find a variety of other beautiful products for your next DIY project in my Swiss online shop zwergenstoffe.ch.
Note from the supermagnete team:
With wider boards and stronger magnets, this method is also nice for larger products such as shoes, caps, decorative items and much more. This version for larger objects is better suited for light products due to the increased lever action.
