I’m changing things up bit in the living room. The triangle wall is gone. I needed a change, and for the first 5 minutes I felt a little regret for taking it down and then I decided all that night white space was just what I needed. I also decided to hang one large piece instead of the three photos that were there before.
The biology nerd hubby is really pleased with the nature art that is now on our wall. This vintage school chart I scored is in pristine condition. I just needed a way to hang it. So, I decided I’d make a frame for this just like the DIY Tropical Foliage Alphabet chart. It was so easy to make, I thought I’d share the how-to with you. It’s a great way to hang large scale pieces without putting them behind glass and not just sticking them with thumb tacks (like you did in your college dorm room). This chart had a weighted bottom, so I decided that I just needed a frame along the top.
- Scotch Mounting Tape
- 2″ lattice (about 99c per foot at the hardware store)
- Brass washers, bolts and #10 machine screws
- Stain (optional)
- Screw driver
- Measuring tape
- String or twine
- 2 small screws
From the back of the piece, screw in the screw through both boards.
Add a couple small screws to the back of the boards to attach the hanging string to. And that’s it!
