Repurpose ART display frame

So, I had this big ole frame sitting around from a yard sale score. I had a blank wall in the studio. I wanted a way to have a way to show off some of my ART and my friends' ART. I wanted to be able to change it as my muse desired. Hmmmm......



So, I started with my fave pallet - BLACK!! Took one can of gloss spray paint and gave new life to the existing frame.
Then you take your frame to your Woodworker hubby and sweet talk him into drilling holes and adding in screw eyes. We spaced the first set down about 2 inches and the rest were spaced and 4 inches apart. We added in some wire (think stringing a clothesline) and tightened it.


Ta-Da......looks sort of like a music staff for the wall!! Here is it all sad and naked, hanging in the studio.

Here it is all happy with a handful of ART pieces hanging like icing from the wires. I used 3/4" binder clips to attach the ART. Now I have something pretty to look at and a place to share my ART. The best part is I can change it at will. Anywho....just sharing.
