Lego minifig display – Ikea large Ribba frame

I’ve finally finished putting together my large Lego Minifig display!  Wooohooo!

Like my previous attempts using Ikea Ribba frames:

*) I glued and pin-fixed some pine strip wood for the shelves and sprayed them up black to match the frame. 

*) Glued in the minifig bases.

So this left me in a quandary regarding the background picture!  What could I use to set off my Star Wars Minifigs!?

With mounted card as my canvas, I used several colours of gloss spray paint and some plant pots to create a galaxy scene with gas giant planets, stars and a nebula.  I’m quite chuffed with it!!!

So here you are, the finished article.

Indian Lego Minifigs – Gunnabo Ikea Frame hack

Ikea Ribba frames are the preferred choice for most Lego minifig display frame ideas; however the new Gunnabo frames are also good for a hack.

I used panel pins to pop in some strip wood and spray painted the inner frame, just as I did with the Ribba frames.

As you can see, I decided to make a mini feature using Indian Minifigs, you know, because I’m a bit of a Joe.

Do you like my colouring-in background?  😉

I’m particularly pleased to give my Sikh minifig a beard using a Father Christmas piece left over from my Lego Advent Calendar.

The completed frame goes quite nicely with the Ribba doesn’t it?
