How I display my race bibs!

I have been very busy with racing season, family, work and other assorted details since I last blogged! I will update later but I wanted to share a project with you! I don't know about you but I had a drawer of race bibs that I didn't quite know what to do with. It seemed a shame to have them hanging out in a drawer where I can't see them and be reminded of how far I have come. On a trip to Ikea we spotted curtain wire and came up with this idea!

So first - you go to your local Ikea (unfortunately these items are not sold online) and pick up this..

DIGNITET Curtain Wire
And a few of these....
DIGNITET Corner Piece
And some of these....
DIGNITET Curtain Ring with Clip
(I only used the clip part for this project - not the hooks)
So you install the curtain wire according to the instructions - ours are installed in our computer/treadmill room and then place a clip on the corner of each bib and hang from the wire! We have ours hanging from the corner of the bib, but you could also hang them with one clip on each corner they would just take up a little more space and not allow for overlap.

Being a little (or maybe a lot) OCD - they are in chronological order with the race name, date, distance and the chip time written on the back. Right now we have wire hung around 1/3 of our room and we need to hang another section because we have 2008 - 2010 on there and we still have all of 2011 bibs to hang.

I am beyond in love with this idea. You totally know I will be stealing it, right? I'm thinking of displaying either half marathon or perhaps full marathon bibs in this manner. LOOOOOOVE!
