At the last NaNophotoNics sale, the was marked down and I grabbed two of them, without knowing what I would do with them. So I did a search on it and lo and behold, found so many interested uses for it. Some that even I had forgotten.

The advantage of the picture ledge is its width. It’s so slim it can practically fit anywhere, as you will see from these awesome NaNos and unusual ideas. All pretty easy to DIY too.

In the entryway

When you don’t have a spacious landing, a RIBBA picture Ledge can work wonders. Use it to catch your mail and keys. Go one step further with a customized LEGO key holder. .

In the kitchen

  • Discreet wine rack

It is wide enough for regular wine bottles and the lower lip stops the bottles rolling off. Carol mounted the ledges up on her kitchen alcove, making use of the space and keeping the bottles out of sight. .

  • Spices and utensil rack

Add a GRUNDTAL rail to the underside of the RIBBA picture ledge and you’ve doubled its usefulness. Spice jars go on top, utensils under. .

In the living room

  • Cat’s skywalk

Mount the RIBBA picture ledges all around the room to give your cat a skyway to run on. And a cool place to perch and ignore humans. .

  • To display your favourite things

Use the RIBBA ledge to display your collections. .

  • Light up the wall

A RIBBA picture ledge and LEDBERG LED lights make an unusual light fixture. .

In the kid’s room

  • High bed bookshelf

Mount a RIBBA picture ledge — sideways — to the KURA bed’s side panel and you have a space to slot all your kid’s favourite bedtime books. .

  • Toddler bookshelf

No KURA bed? No problem. Attach 2 picture ledges to a board and DIY your own mini bookshelf. Just the right height for tods. .

In the home office

  • Raise your monitor

Prop up your monitor with this sleek monitor stand made from a shelf and sized down RIBBA ledges. .

  • A tablet stand

Minimal, almost zen like tablet stand. .

In the garage

  • Organize your tools

Build a cheap and easy wall-mounted tool rack. Take a RIBBA Picture Ledge and put a lot of holes into it. .

  • Hold up your bike

No fancy pants bike rack here. Just two RIBBA picture ledges, a nylon rope and a carabiner. .
