Hang and Hide
- To finish, position your painting on the wall, mark the screw holes with a pencil, and set the painting aside.
- Attach the wall anchors according to the manufacturer’s instructions.Note: Fasteners vary according to the weight of the object you are trying to hang and the type of wall, so ask at the hardware store to make sure you pick the right kind.
- Reposition your painting, and screw the hinge into place. Swing the painting closed, and forget about that control panel until the next time you need access.
I created this hinged painting to cover a control panel, but you can easily adapt the concept to create an enchanting replacement to a medicine cabinet door, to cover a fuse box, or to hide an alarm-system console. The list goes on and on.
