Use slatboard to store your Nerf guns

I've been in love with slatboard since I was young. My mother used them for organizing the kitchen (hanging pots and pans, etc) and in all our closets growing up (small hooks for hanging belts and longer hooks for hats and thick scarves). But it wasn't until I saw this father and son-designed Nerf gun display using the Jifram Easy Living slatwall kit that I REALLY realized how cool this shit is AND finally came up with the solution to my Nerf-guns-and-ammo-scattered-about-the-apartment problem.

The dad behind this Nerf display explained:

This was a fun and easy project for my son and me. We had the whole project done in less than an hour, very easy! My son is the envy of all his friends. We ordered more hooks for other guns.

Guys, I am SO doing this! But this begs the question, if you're not using an awesome slatboard display, how ARE you storing your Nerf collections?

  1. MIND=BLOWN. My boyfriend is a professional gunsmith and I've got a small collection of my own firearms. I've been wracking my brain for a renter freindly and pretty looking wall-mount system for our gun room. This might be just the thing!

    • HA! I'm such a Nerf nerd that I didn't even THINK about this being used for real guns. Der! ;)

  4. Wasn't there a post about doing the same thing with pegboard a while back? My plan is pegboard on the inside of the coat closet door. It's on the todo list anyway; we'll see if it ever happens.

  5. This is PERFECT. We have so many nerf guns in our storage unit. And this seems like a great way to have them available for random nerf battles.
