Our New Slat Wall
My library shares a wall with the resource room. On that wall was a weird cork board section. It wobbled a bit and nothing heavy could be hung on it.
Upon closer inspection, we figured out that a plexiglass window was hidden under the cork board.
Another school down the road offered to trade a slat board for one of our rolling shelves.
More wall shelving?
Of course, I picked the most difficult place to put the new slat board: over the weird plexiglass/cork board wall.
Tip #1: Screws can go through plexiglass.
The head of maintenance inspected the wall and gave the okay for the carpenter to affix the slat board directly onto the plexiglass.
Unfortunately, there isn't enough money in the budget to buy brackets and new shelving for the slat wall. So, we will wait until next year.
Until then, we put up beautiful jungle-themed artwork over it (graciously loaned to us from Lady D's family).
