|yay for blurry pics|
The next day we went to Michael's and I bought an 8x10 canvas and some smaller/longer ones for some other crafting experiments (see my mini hall makeover from the other day). I had the soft gray fabric on hand already and picked the hooks up at Lowes. I simply cut the fabric to be a few inches larger than the canvas, stretched it around and stapled with our little staple gun. I then added 2 strips of thin white ribbon for a little pizzaz. I was going to find a patterned fabric but decided that might be too much with necklaces hanging in front. I like the simplicity the ribbon adds. Fianlly I screwed 9 hooks in. These were a mother to get in! The first one was easy, then they started getting dumb. I think some were screwed through a knot in the wood, and others through the layers where the corners are held together in the wood frame. Needless to say, my fingers were sore after the final hook.
To hang it in our bathroom I simply put 2 nails in the wall and set the top of the frame on them. I figured it's not holding a lot and is very likely to get bumped where it is so no need for a more complex hanging device.
