My great Thrift Shop find may have not been such a good find after all!!
This is how I wanted to hang them on my bathroom wall…lined up straight and tall.
When I flipped the plaques over I could see that the holes were not evenly spaced…there was a good 1/4” difference on both top and sides…I wonder if the person who previously owned these plaques gave up on hanging them and finally donated them to the Salvation Army?
Sooo…how to hang them??
Here’s what I did…I cut out three pieces of paper the same size as the wall plaques and I numbered both the wall plaque and the paper. (All three were different with different spacing!)
I laid the wall plaque face down on my knees and placed the paper on top and with a pen I poked a hole where the nail should go. (I also wrote ‘this side down’ on the paper as I did NOT want to get the paper reversed!!)
See how wonky the holes are…yowzers!!
I taped the paper to the wall and hammered the nails into each hole!! [Wouldn’t you know that I would hit a stud…which meant the drill had to come out…which meant hubby came with it! What’s with boys and their toys? Don’t they realize we girls like to play too…:0]
Anyway…it worked great!! Amazing in fact!
After finishing, I realized that I could have done all of this spacing and squaring up on one big piece of paper…. Oh well next time…
It’s not a perfect job but it’s as perfect as wonky plaques can be!!
Thanks for stopping by…have a magical Monday and happy stitching!
