LOVE SHACK PROJECT– AGAINST THE WALL

Feeling like a champion after my successful wall construction, I decided to  press on with my living room make-over.   Next, I needed  to devise a way to display my very large paintings, and store blank canvasses.

My  wall space was limited to 3 walls,  (one of  which had a large wall heater in the middle of  it),  and being plaster walls, not strong enough to hold a large painting!    So I came up with a plan to  build 2 large frames on the plaster walls.   I attached a  couple  of 2×4’s to the door frame,  and  ran a  flat  board across  them to hang  the paintings on.

The depth of the 2×4’s created a  small  pocket  behind the painting  for storage,  and  also hid  the  non-functioning wall  heater.   I finished  the bottom  off with  some  extra sheet rock,   so it was barely noticeable that the  wall  was now extended four inches.

YAY!  My paintings are off the ground!

THANK YOU!
