So, I have a spouse who is an avid baseball enthusiast. Instead of hiding away his collection we are always trying to come up with great ways to display them. These simple affordable ideas are a great way to get those baseball bats out of the closet corner they are leaning in and out into the rest of the house. Baseball bat display
The whole point of these ideas is to affordably display your baseball bat collection. So don’t worry that you will be spending a lot of money!
Hang them on the Wall:
One of my favorite ways to display my spouse’s hobby of collecting baseball bats is to hang them on the wall. I find that using simple curtain rod hardware is the easiest way. You should buy the wooden curtain hardware, the kind that is meant to hand wood curtain rods. I find these all the time in Wal Mart for less than $5 a pop.
You can use you sand paper or small hand sander to widen the half circle on one end to really hole the larger end of the baseball bat.
Be sure to paint the bracket out to match each other if you do sand them.
You can also use those bicycle hooks that are coated in rubber to simply and easily hang the baseball bats. The rubber protects your baseball bat form any damage and makes for a great industrial look in you home.
Now, you can also hang a row of simple hooks along your family room or office wall for this next simple way to display you baseball bat collection. Tie a great piece of leather rope e or twin around the handle. I like to make it loop by tying one end of the twine or leather rope into he knot. Now, use that simple loop to hang the baseball bat on the hook. This is a great way to hang your baseball bat in an unseal way. They will be vertical on your wall, which most people do not expect.
Lay them out for Display
If you have a glass top coffee table, the kind with storage area inside, then try laying all of the baseball bat collection out in there. If you have a large collection you could line them up. If not, just lay them willy nilly so they look causal. You guest will definitely wan tot pick them up. They will also be a great conversation starter at you next dinner party.
Try installing those great floating shelves in your home, the kind with the lip on the edge of them. All you have to do is lay your baseball bat out on the simple shelf. You could make a vertical wall of these simple and affordable shelves to create a large and cohesive look. Hang the shelves about five inches apart working your way up vertically. This still allows access to the baseball bats, but keep them on display in a great looking way!
Stand Them Up
Ok, so who said umbrella stands are just for umbrellas. Really, is there a law or something? These umbrella stands in any shape are perfect for machine a vertical display of your baseball bat collection. I live those iron umbrella stands for this simple display project because it allows you to see al of the baseball bat.
You could also use any large stone ware or cast iron pot in place of the umbrella stand. Just be sure whatever container you decide to use will stand up to the weight of all of your baseball bats in the collection.
