I needed something to hang above my scrapbook table to hold alot of heavy albums and supplies. I got instruction from Ana's General Store Cubbies plan but I modified it to 48" long since the boards were already 48" long. I went with 30" tall so it would hold the 12"x12" format scrapbooks comfortably. I hadn't bought my pocket jig at this point yet so I just used glue and screws stratigically so they are mostly hidden. I already had some trim so I threw some of that on there to cover a couple flaws.
I then made the bulletin board hanging below it. It is a ceiling tile cut in half and painted the wall color. I used the miter saw (yikes!) and even made some awesome 45 degree joints for the frame! Before I added the frame, I fastened some ribbons criss-crossed to tuck things behind. This picture doesn't show the final addition: some undercabinet lighting.
Now I just need to build a new TABLE to go under it!
What did you use to hang it on the wall? Did you nail on those picture frame mounts, or how did you do it?
