The project

 

I found some cool old prints that I wanted to frame and thought I'd give it a go myself. It was easy, inexpensive and all materials were sourced from Bunnings.

 

First profile attempted. Next time I'd probably make it a bit thinner to sit closer to the wall.

Cord fits snug in the slot and holds print in place.

How to hang just about anything

 

The secret to successfully hanging anything on a wall is knowing what’s beneath your paint, tiles or wallpaper. How your wall is constructed affects how you drill into the wall, what wall fasteners you should choose, and how much weight they can hold.

 

Experienced Workshop member Adam Woodhams covers the various fastening systems and the drill bits you’ll need in the guide How to hang just about anything.

Workshop member Jesse1 used this idea to hang a beautiful tea towel that she bought on a trip to France.
