DIY Display board


Recently, we found some old fence boards by the roadside. We decided to make a rolling display board.  I love the planked wall look and the variation of color between the old and new boards.

The freestanding display is supported by two easel type legs attached to a chain.  The chain is adjustable so the display can lean at different angles.  The legs rotate in for easy storage. Casters were also added to make it mobile and easy to maneuver.

Combining old and new


I had a little of Espresso stain left so I mixed it with the Dark Walnut #customcolor ha!


Love this dark color!

Casters in place


Look at those legs!  Ohhh the wooden ones – hehe!


A small chain helps hold the legs in place


The chain is held in place with a simple cup hook


26″ W x 60″ H!


I love the simple “kickstand”


Add another hook to the outside frame to hold the legs in place when not in use.
