Chicken wire. Currently, I am in love with the stuff. I just bought two UGLY plain bookcases from Target and will replace the cheap flimsy cardboard type backs with chicken wire and distress the shelves. Instant character. Will post soon! :0)
Chicken wire + clothes pins = pinboard. Or...use the same idea to hang oddly-shaped pieces of art that you can't find a frame for. Maybe a huge piece for a hall or something and use it like gallery wall. Hmm...
After removing the mirror, I painted the frame a bright yellow. Then I stapled chicken wire to the back side of the frame. When I bought the chicken wire from Atwoods the man working that department asked if I needed any pointers for my chicken coop. I told him I was making a frame for artwork. He shook his head and walked away.
