Hi Everyone - for past month or so I've been doing a DIY project, transforming one of the walls in our house into my own denim bar. I figured its a great way to showcase my collection to friends when we host gatherings and it acts as a great accent/decorating wall interior design. here's a quick peak:
The inspiration came from numerous Diesel stores and other misc shops. but It all started w/ manually torching the wood siding to give it a rustic burnt look.
Then staple the nails to the studs... measuring them and cutting them is a pain since I've never done this before.. but at the end it was very rewarding:
After the wall was done and reoutched the blotchy spots at the bottom, now its time to find the proper hooks. Initially I wanted to build pipes just like many diesel stores and use leather straps to hang the jeans. But after looking around I decided on these reclaimed rail road spikes. At the beginning I thought they are super cool. But once I got them I obviously wasn't forward thinking enough, they are dirty as hell!!!! Obviously, they were taken off from old train tracks! duh...
so I had to clean them 1 by 1... lets just say it sucked.
But I guess in the end it really worked... After about 1 month or so of working on this at weekends and evenings, finally its done!
There's 24 hooks at the bottom row, and every morning I get to pick a pair out. The top 3 pairs are my classics which has a lot of memories to me. Left to right: Rock Republic Hanley, Diesel Rhioma 796, Diesel Zathan 772 (from 2003). I have located another industrial rustic shelf to house my over flow jeans...
Thanks for lookin guys - Feel free to definitely add to this thread on how you showcase your denim collection!
