Monday Montage: how to hang unhangable art

Updated Oct 12 2015

I've spent the week watching the Offbeat Home Flickr pool grow, and really enjoying the variety of spaces we're seeing. Here are a few highlights, including a Bollywood music room, blue and red bliss, and the ultimate solution to hanging un-hangable art.

We have more photos in the Offbeat Home Flickr pool, and would love to see your submissions!

In the meantime, take a look at your Monday Montage Clicky Links:

  1. A good picture framer would be able to frame and hang that painting – though the framing would cost more than the picture is worth. The binder clips are a pretty cool idea though. I never would have thought of that.

  2. Binder clips come in a number of sizes, colors and materials–so even if the black ones pictured don't work for your home, there are a lot of options that can complement your picture and overall decor.
