As a passionate collector of Hot Wheels and Matchbox cars, I have always struggled to find the perfect way to display my collection. I wanted something that was both functional and stylish, but nothing on the market quite fit the bill. That's when I decided to take matters into my own hands and create my own solution.
The first iteration of my floating shelf display was functional, but not quite up to my standards. I had designed it with a long tab on the top to hold onto the command strip, but it was really visible from the top and didn't look great. I tried moving it to the bottom, but it was still too visible. Thankfully, my friends on TikTok and Instagram came to the rescue.
Through their input and feedback, I was able to make the necessary adjustments to my design and create a product that I am truly proud of. By changing the tab to a sideways orientation, it became virtually invisible and added a sleek and stylish touch to the overall design.
The final product is a 3D-printed floating shelf display that is specifically designed to fit Hot Wheels and Matchbox cars. As always, it's 3D-printed from durable PLA plastic, so the display is built to last. It also features a slightly angled design that ensures the best possible viewing angle for your cars. The unique tire ridges also prevent the cars from rolling side to side, keeping them securely in place on the shelf.
One of the most important aspects of any display solution is ease of installation, and the floating shelf display does not disappoint. It comes with an included command strip, making installation quick and hassle-free. The shelf can be mounted on any wall or vertical surface in just a matter of minutes.
Each shelf can hold up to 4oz, which is perfect for displaying your favorite cars without worrying about them falling off or becoming damaged. The raised edge of the shelf also adds an extra layer of security, ensuring that your beloved collection stays safe and sound.
I have to say - I'm pretty dang proud of the final product and grateful for the input and feedback from my friends on social media! Without their help, it would have taken me a LONG time to figure out the best way to create a display solution that is both functional and stylish.
