Nice (Wall) Rack

So the nice people at Nice Racks sent me a wall rack to try out, which on looking at the stack of boards in the corner of the Child's room and with the summer visit fast approaching, seemed like a good idea. It duly showed up and looked quite clever, a nice modular system where you can keep adding racks if you want. I'll admit to thinking it might be a little lightweight and it definitely seemed just waaay too easy to set up. Luckily, it was indeed lightweight simply because it was plastic, and it was ridiculously quick to install, under 10 minutes even with a lot of double and triple checking placement and straightness. The thing is great, and best of all it's made from 100% recycled plastic and it's made in the USA, a rare claim these days. Excuse my photos (the top two), it's not easy to make a black wallrack look exciting, so I went for a bit of colour with a couple of showboat boards. You'd think that after all this time working with Glen Friedman, Stecyk, Kidman, Jamie Brisick, Joe Curren and so on I'd have picked up some photography skills, but no. Trefz would probably have shot it with a Hasselblad and some grainy b&w film and made it look great, so just try to imagine that. Very nice Rack though.
