How i made it

wall 

So I have gotten a fair number of questions on how we did the picture project so I shall attempt to explain.

First I should tell you that I saw it online with no instructions so there could be a simpler way but I didn’t know how.

1.  Buy some moulding from Lowe’s or Home Depot that will be the end pieces.  I made sure that it was deep enough to drill into.

2.  Buy some spacers (this is in the hardware area) that can cover the eye hooks and wire

3.  Buy some wire

4.  Buy some eyehooks

5.  measure the pictures and then drill the holes in the moulding.

6.  I bought a piece of 8′ moulding and had Lowe’s saw it in half … so 4′ each

7.  I didn’t have a working drill to make the counter sink holes so I used a Dremel tool which was kind of a pain.

8.  After drilling the holes, screw in the eye hooks

9.  Paint the wood black

10.  Mount the two vertical pieces.  We mounted one and then strung the wire and used a level to hang the other one.

11.  Hang all the wire

12.  Print out your pictures

13.  We used magnets to hang the pictures but the original photo used clips…like bulldog clips or something.

14.  Hope you didn’t fuck it up.

15.  There ya go!

16.  Good luck.

    Thanks for sharing the instructions. I’m going to bribe my engineer friend to help me with this. I’m a “find a spot and nail the nail into the wall” kinda picture hanger. But an engineer should be able to follow your instructions well enough.
