Decorating & Furniture/Underware Display

Question
Hi Jennifer,

My partner and I have an underwear fetish.  We have 300+ pairs that we want to display, this is, hang up on hangers, but not in a closet.  Our space is not that limited.  We want the display to be interesting and functional (we wear several pairs each a day!).  Do you have any thoughts?

I am not creative, and can only see a rack like at a department store... we don't want that.

My partner is talented with woodworking, welding, airbrushing, etc. we just can't come up with a functional design.  Any help is appreciated.

Thanks!

Answer
Hi Jer,

I must say this is by far the most intriguing question (out of 3600+) that I've gotten over the years.  I do however, know about displaying 'shoes' because I have a friend who has that fetish/predisposition to purchase and therefore display.  So thanks for selecting me for your question; we'll see what I can come up with.  

First of all, if you want the display to be a) on hangers and b) readily accessible, I would consider creating a "plexiglass wall" with plexi doors that open/close with ease.  It could be floor to ceiling and have areas within it that were roughly a yard wide by 12 inches long and about 4-5 inches in depth.  On the back of each section, you could add pegs or screw in hooks to accommodate a hanger; equally spaced.  That would allow you to visually see several pairs in each "box" without seeing them in their entirety.  The beauty is that your wall could grow as your collection does, and plexi is fairly inexpensive.  If your partner is handy, working with plexi isn't difficult.

Hope this idea spurs your creativity.  By the way - what a conversation piece!!!

Regards,
Jennifer

Expertise

Visit my web site at: http://www.jennifertaylorwojcik.com Decor: I've written about it, planned it, designed it and colored it, and I've never stopped loving it. It's not what you spend, or who made it, it's how it makes you feel.

Experience

College, advertising, public relations, marketing, free-lance writing and a plethora of creative endeavors have led me here. As an entrepreneur in decorative product design, I learned the hard way how tough it can be to be in business for yourself. A stint at a law firm taught me humility too. Some three thousand questions ago, I wondered if I could really help. Obviously, I'm still here and still taking your questions. God Bless You!
