Measure once...

With creating art and taking photos, comes the challenge of displaying it all with due respect. We all know that grouping photography and artwork often delivers more impact than stand-alone displays. Terms like "gallery walls" and "wall features" are rolling off the tongues of style experts and homeowners alike.
Ki has come up with an innovative way to display our frames and re-use the common yardstick as picture ledges that definitely measure up: they are up to the task and look beautiful.

How to make your own Vintage Yardstick Art/Photo Ledge:

1" x 2" board
adhesive strips
Measure and cut board slightly shorter than yardstick.

Glue and screw board to the back of yardstick, leaving a 1/4" lip to hold art.

Attach to wall with adhesive strips. No holes, no mess!

Great for kid's art, photos, mementos, holiday cards and more!
