Ikea has these great one inch thick photo frames for $1.99 so I bought 4 for my kids' photos.
However, I didn't look very closely at them during my shopping euphoria
and therefore, didn't see that hanging these was not going to be a
I looked through my toolbox and found some size 8d 2-1/2" nails and #8-10x1 plastic anchors. I popped a hole in the drywall by hammering an #8 screw in. I hammered in the anchor then hammered in the nail. I had to hammer the nail in to pop it through the anchor.
I found that if you don't hammer the nail all the way in as far as you need it, there's room for your hand behind the frame as you try to fit the nail head into the bracket. After you make that connection, gently push the frame against the wall.
Very easy, it only took me 10 minutes to hang four frames! If you try this, let me know how it works for you OR if you have another idea, please share~Happy Hanging!
Just finished this rack for keeping track of my earrings inventory. Very easy, especially if you can sweet talk your husband into building the frame for you AND drilling all the holes!
2-1 X 3 pine boards
1-1 X 2 pine boards
1-roll (50 ft) of electrical wire, 14 stranded THHN
Cut all of the pine boards in half. Use the 3 X 1 halved pine boards to build a simple square frame. Trim the halved 1 X 2 to fit inside the frame to reinforce the square that you created and screw these to the inside of the frame.
Drill holes all down the sides at whatever distance apart you need for whatever you want to hang here. We drilled the first hole at 3/4", then at 2-3/4" all the way down.
String the electrical wire through the entire rack and secure each end, one at the top and one at the bottom very tightly. I stuck a nail in the hole with the wire, wrapped the wire around the nail and tied a simple knot at the end. It took about an hour to make the whole thing!
