String Mural

Building the Mural

We decided to put the mural in front of three large floor to ceiling windows above the commons, so that the kids could see and walk past it every day.  We built a frame that would attach to the radiators at the bottom of window.  Building the bottom of the frame was easy but the tricky part is figuring out where to attach it.  We ended up splitting a 1X4 and using that as the base.  On that 1X4 we drilled holes and screwed in cup hooks 2 inches apart.  We attached the board with L brackets to the back of the radiator.  Making sure to keep away from the hot part of the radiator, it was surprising how sturdy it turned out! Now we were ready to string!
