A few months ago, I bought a Coyote print, part the collection; “A-raison-a” of Yann Legendree (a french artist) from CB2. To be honest, it was on big sale and I couldn’t pass it up like most of my other purchases. The print was big, so it would cost me if I decided to go fancy with glass or custom made frames. It’ll be hung on the empty wall between my room and old son’s room, making it not worth the money I paid for it.
So I went Lowe’s and bought three thin wood moldings. I also bought some poster strips(on sale) from the local grocery store. $22 for the wood moldings and $2 for the tape.
I cut the moldings to the size that I wanted and spray painted it gold using leftovers from the kitchen hardware project. I even didn’t bother to use a miter saw for the edges to make make things easy.
So here it is. After 30 min of work, it was hung and, to me, it looked OK. I might hang a small title tag with info about the painter beside the print. My sons wondered what was this picture about. 🙂 But for now, I’m fine with it. Later, I can take it off easily thanks to the removable poster tapes and thin wood moldings that were mostly attached on the poster not to the wall.
