Our friends over at The Optical Journal put together creative DIY eyewear racks that you can utilize or share with your customers. Many of these can be a good afternoon DIY project for patients or inexpensive, eye-catching solution for your practice. We hope you'll feel inspired by what your peers are doing with their sunglasses displays.
Enviable Eyeglass Displays for Your Practice and Patients
One of the big advantages of Pinterest is the ability to find all sorts of cool ideas, such as what you and your patients can do with multiple pairs of sunglasses and eyeglasses. Set aside a little wall and put up some of these DIY eyewear racks to show your patients how multiple pairs of eyeglasses can be a bit of home decor.
DIY Project A piece of reclaimed wood, some string, rubber, cords stretched across the board and how cool is this. Even in the office you can showcase various colors. Paint the boards, color coordinate with fun glasses.
On a Budget All you need is wood hangers and a few nails or hooks to put these hangers up. Stop by any home store, IKEA, or Target for a few wall hooks and hangers.
If You're Crafty For crafters, this eyewear rack comes with it’s own DIY instructions. Multiple prints and colors displayed in the office could be seasonal fun!
Limited Space We like this one for our own home. Check out the sunglass rack on the inside of the closet door.
Minimalist Check out this great idea; take an old picture frame and hang some eyewear. Paint the picture frame and this could be a great way to showcase your 'Eyewear of the Month' or 'Trending Colors.'
Everyday Carry For busy customers who value efficiency, never leave home without your keys and your sunglasses!
Trend Setting Along the same concept as the picture frame, these are old window frames! You can take a wall and showcase ‘eyewear stories’ in each section. Old window frames and doors are easy to find on sites such as Craigslist for free. Instead of "Family", Put in "Trends".
Rustic Vibes Old Rakes - Do It Yourselfers are using old rakes for Wine Glasses and necklaces. The same idea can be used for Eyewear!
