I put a propeller on it, y’all.
The gallery wall, I mean. Haven’t you heard? Propellers are the new birds. 😉
I found it marked 50% off at Hobby Lobby, and I practically skipped up to the register with it because AREYOUKIDDINGME?! It’s almost the same tone as the frame I blogged about last week…
…AND if fits in with our coastal/great outdoors vibe so perfectly, AAAAAAND it has a blue-gray patina on it!!! AAAAAHHHHH!!!! 😀 (I’m so glad you understand how exciting these kinds of things can be- ha!)
To hang it, we started by measuring how far we wanted it to stick out from the wall. After that, we painted 5 inches of a wooden dowel to match our wall, and used a jigsaw to cut off the painted part.
We made sure to use a dowel that fit inside the hanger on the back of the propeller:
Next, we drilled a hole in the wall (a little smaller than the dowel) where we wanted to hang the propeller…
…and then we hammered the dowel into the hole.
We hung the propeller on the dowel and I used a dollop of hot glue to make sure it stays in place. (It’s super light-weight)
My friend Ruthie is helping me with the next piece this grouping, and I’m looking forward to sharing a post about that once I’ve got it hung up! XO
PS- Speaking of sweet Ruthie, she’s doing a “herd dispersal” over in her Etsy shop this week. 25 cutie-pie cows are looking for homes, and I sure wish they could all come home with me! 😀
