Cross one more project off of the list (sort of). The Curtis Jeré "Birds in Flight" is now hung and the star of the show in the dining room.
I still can't believe that I found one at all, much less pulled it out of a barn. Who would stick something so gorgeous out there?
Well, I can't really say anything, as mine's been stuffed in an attic for months waiting for the day that I found an appropriate method to hang it on plaster walls. One of the two mounting hooks broke loose and plaster doesn't exactly hold up well under load, so I had to get a little creative...
... and by creative, I mean very reckless. Yes, the whole of this 6 foot long sculpture is now perched tenuously upon one 30 lb picture hanger and nail with frame hanging wire strung between a mounting hook and one of the flock's behinds.
Please say a quick prayer for that poor nail.
