How to build a DVD rack

Hello guys and girls, I would like to build a DVD rack, I would like to build something that attaches to one of my walls in my living room.  I imagine I will paint it to match the existing color of the walls, does anybody have any ideas?

How are ya glockman I'm ChrisFixit. I see Shecandoit22 handled a lot of the "how to build" a rack in your other thread so I thought I'd chime in and help out with some of the ideas portion.


A wall mounted DVD rack can be as simple as a series of shelves on the wall, but why not try something more interesting. If the rack is in an entertainment room for instance you could do something resembling a classic ticket or theater box. It could be a marquee with floating shelves and a curtain. If something more modern is more your taste a series of floating cubes arranged along a wall might be cool. Really sky's the limit on how you want it to look. Well I hope some of this has been helpful in some way.




EDIT: I find any excuse I can to do a quick sketch.

The rack hangs on the wall utilizing a french cleat. Should hold approximately 100 DVDs and can easily be expanded to hold larger collections.

I'm a fan of things being a wee bit askew so I really like the idea of this one Paul. You should totally do a how to in an original post so it can get some visibility! Thanks for sharing.
