Description: Riktig is the Scandinavian word for right.
I wanted to create a photo wall that: 1) could be easily updated with new photos 2) wasn’t too expensive 3) wasn’t dependent on one business that might not be there in the future (I’m looking at you ixxi)
I used: DIGNITET Curtain wire DIGNITET Support/corner fixture RIKTIG Curtain hook with clip Big sheets of thick paper/cardboard Glue (I used a liquid glue sponge thingie) Photos Cutting knife, ruler etc.
I believe this hack is pretty self-explanatory but some notes: The hooks between the photos are made be combining two hooks. The square photos are 20x20cm. The black squares are 25.3×25.3cm. The holes are 4mm in diameter and the centre of the holes are 1.2cm away from the sides/tops/bottoms of the black squares. The distance between the black squares is 3.7cm. Remember that distance when calculating the size of the 2:1, 3:1, supersized 1:1 or whatever shape you might want to create:)
I believe that’s about it. The lamp is also from ikea (FORSÅ). The images in the bottom are a bit off because I ran out of hooks – Ikea is only 10 min away so I’ll fix that soon. I don’t have the total costs for this project but the IKEA items are dirt cheap:)
