Make A DIY Dartboard Wall Protector
If you don’t want to buy a ready-made dartboard protector, you can make your own protector as well. Given below are some tips that can help you make one.
A cable reel background is an ideal choice as it is already cut. So, you don’t need to cut one yourself. All you need to do is remove it and then glue it on the right place on the wall. If you want to make it look better, you can stain and sand it for a vintage effect.
Keep in mind that this material is pretty heavy. Therefore, you may want to hang it on the wall properly.

With a wooden dartboard shelf, you can place the darts much more easily and comfortably. Aside from this, this background protects the wall and makes it look more appealing than before.
If you like an even, soft-touch, you may also consider softwood laminations. It can be fun to craft it. You just need to cut out the desired sizes of planks and then join them. Also, you can drill a few holes on top for the storage of extra darts.
