A couple of you asked how we did the wire art hanging whatsit I showed yesterday, and since I foolishly over-commited to this goddamned November blog-every-day business and need a filler post, like, pronto happen to have some photos handy, here’s a quick run-down for those who are interested.

The ingredient list basically consisted of picture wire, cabinet knobs, a sheet rock screw, and a drill bit.


Oh, and binder clips:


What we wanted to do was screw the cabinet knob directly into the wall, but since it’s designed to be attached to a cabinet, JB ditched the bolt that came with it and used a sheet rock screw instead. He used a vise grip to clamp onto the screw:


Then he cut the head off the sheet rock screw with a miter saw, using a metal cutting blade. Looka them sparks!


Afterwards, he used a grinder to narrow the top of the screw, so it would fit more easily into the knob.


The knob could then be attached to the top of the sheet rock screw, like this:


JB used a small drill bit to drill two holes into our kitchen wall (after using his stud finder, and AS ALWAYS, pointing the device at himself and grinning widely and waggling his eyebrows because HEY IT HAS FOUND A STUD GET IT HAR HAR HAR), then screwed the knobs into the wall. The wire could then simply be wrapped around each knob to create the line, and the art is attached to the wire with the binder clips.



It’s not super fancy (if you’re really looking for cool art/photo-hanging inspiration this project is extremely awesome), but I like how it turned out. Our fridge is stainless steel so you can’t put stuff on there with magnets, which on the one hand is kind of nice because we don’t overload it with every little scrap we want to save, but we haven’t had a good alternative place for displaying temporary things like kids’ drawings. Now that we do, maybe I’ll actually hang a few of the eighty bazillion “art” projects that come home from daycare, instead of, um, round-filing them.

What? Oh come on, like I’m supposed to frame this . . . well, mysterious zen koan, or whatever the hell it is?

as a channel especially showcases how deceiving and outright unnecessary mixture

Thank you sharing all these wonderful discussions. In addition, the ideal travel plus medical insurance program can often ease those worries that come with visiting abroad. Any medical crisis can before long become costly and that’s likely to quickly place a financial load on the family’s finances. Having in place the ideal travel insurance bundle prior to leaving is worth the time and effort. Thank you
