It was super dusty and gross, so I cleaned it up then taped it off. There is a cream stripe through the middle of the frame, and I wanted to keep that, so I did two seperate "tapings" so I could spray paint from both sides of the stripe.
Once the paint was completely dry, I brought it inside, turned on the hot glue gun and grabbed my 99 cent store twine.
I cut up five pieces of twine.I glued one end of each piece to one side of the back of the frame.
Once the left side was all dry, I glued each opposite end of twine to the right side of the back of the frame. I did it this way for a reason. I was able to keep the twine much more taunt when one end was already glued into place. I could pull it tight while the glue dried. If it is not taunt enough it will droop when you hang things to it.
Then I just put a bunch of clothes pins to it, and hung it in my kitchen. It holds a few photos and lots of "inspiration images".
I also hung my home-made apron that I sewed a couple years ago. I love it, and it matches my kitchen actaully. It is usually hidden away in a drawer, but now I have a place to hang it.
While I was taking these photos, I was also in the middle of emptying my dishwasher. I left the door of it open, and forgot. I had my eye in the camera, and backed up right over it. I fell over backwards, lost my slippers, dropped the camera, and landed on a pile of knifes. Luckily I, as well as my dishwasher & camera was not hurt. I was lying on the ground cracking up at my clumbsiness.
