Here are
three easy and inexpensive ways
to make a holder for your
CDs and DVDs.


  • Cut two pieces of wood, one slightly larger than a CD Rom and the other the same width
    by three times as long.

Fit the long piece of wood at right angles to the square piece with a metal brackets.
  Fix to wall at an angle with the long end raised above the short end (like a tick
or check mark).

The CDs can then be placed on the shelf.

  • Fix a metal notice board or plate to a wall.

Stick self adhesive magnetic strips to the edge of each CD case and these will then
adhere to the metal plate/board.

  • Get some baking tins large enough to hold CDs.

Put tape letters on outside of tins (e.g. A – C)

Paint with appropriate paint.

Remove tape to reveal the letters.

Place on shelves.
