    It only took me 9 years...but I finally got my pins organized and displayed the way I want them.

    I discovered that felt letter boards work great for displaying. Now I can access and move pins around without having to take any frames apart and the felt is easy on the pin backs. No more bending or breaking them trying to push them through a hard frame back.

    I got this super cute coffin cork board on Etsy for my Haunted Mansion pins and one Tower of Terror pin. :)

    The small shelf also holds my HM pops.

    This is in a corner of our den/home office. I still have a little room on the large black board for a few new additions.

    That looks fantastic! The coffin shaped board is a great idea.

    Love your display! It looks so organized! How did you create your frames? I have bought shadow boxes before but the padding is too thin where the pins just fall off :(

    Are they all felt letter boards? Where did you get them? It looks great.

    I had my pins in a shadow box frame for a long long time. The pins stayed on, but the backing was so hard that it would sometimes bend the post, I even broke a couple! I also didn't like that I had to take it apart anytime I wanted to add or subtract or rearrange pins.

    These boards are Felt Letter Boards. I got them on Amazon from a company called "Felt Like Sharing". They are a little expensive, but I tried a less expensive one too, and it just didn't have the same quality. The felt letter boards are great because the pins stick well, and don't get damaged.

    Hi,

    They are all felt letter boards, except the one that my Si and Am collection is in (on the right). That is a hinged box that has teeny shelves in it. Oh, and the coffin board is cork. I got it on Etsy and it is made with a 3D printer.

    Three different sizes, 10 x 10, 16 x 20 and 12 x 14

    Oooh I love the layout, and various color pinboards, including the gradient ones. Would you be able to share close-ups of the felt other boards when you get chance?

    I love it @TonkaToy !! Thanks for sharing. Each color complements the theme of each collection. Looks like they have a lot of different colors, including a sunburst gradient, should you expand your collection :) How come some pins have backing cards and how do you get those to stay on the board?

    I just liked the look of the backer cards on those pins, so I left them - the horse cards look like a barn - and I thought that was fun.
    The cards just stay put with the pin holding them in.
