For a while now, I&rsquove been holding off on posting about our learn bed room simply because of two items: the curtains are far too short so I have to have to sew a strip on the base of every one particular and&hellip I didn&rsquot know what to do with the wall higher than the mattress. I&rsquom nonetheless dragging my toes with the curtains (sewing&rsquos haaaarrrrdddd), but&hellip I worship the new-and-enhanced wall about the mattress. I discovered all those astounding vintage map prints and was so content to dangle them up!


I grabbed 4 maps for the master bedroom: Washington, Providence, Brooklyn, and New York&hellip four metropolitan areas of importance to us! I didn&rsquot want a sound frame to just take absent from the magnificence of these maps so&hellip I resolved to consider&nbspanother stab at floating acrylic frames. On a funds.

Materials FOR FLOATING Body

(affiliate backlinks incorporated for your comfort):

  • standoff mounts

  • optional:&nbspgold spray paint

  • long #six screws and anchors if needed

  • you&rsquoll will need a narrow and lengthy drill little bit to fit inside your standoff mount. I utilised&nbspthis 1&nbspfrom Residence Depot

  • Glue Dots

  • Acrylic. Lowes will minimize acrylic for you&hellip I included 3 inches to every dimension so these 18 x 24 inch maps meant my acrylic was minimize to 24 x thirty. To minimize charges, I used four sheets of acrylic and glued the artwork immediately onto every single sheet&hellip certainly it will be a little bit nicer to use 1 sheet of acrylic on either side of the artwork, but it will include a further $fifty+ to the expense of this challenge.

  • laser amount

    Stage one: SPRAY PAINT MOUNTING Components

    Spray paint your mounting hardware if you want it gold. (I suggest&hellip who&nbspdoesn&rsquot&nbspwant it gold, right?!)

    Tip: adhere standoff mounts into an previous cardboard box for quick spraying


    Drill holes in your acrylic at each corner. To drill by means of acrylic, use painters tape on each facet of the acrylic to retain it from cracking. On a flat floor with a slender piece of wood or cardboard beneath, gradually implement raising strain to drill all the way by your acrylic. (Make confident you leave the protective sheet on the complete time&hellip get it off just right before hanging.)

    Step 3. Measure YOUR FRAMES

    Evaluate and mark in which you will will need to screw in your standoff mounts. Use the laser amount to make it easier. (Feel it or not, my frames are all amount&hellip we just are living in a historic residence without far too many right angles!)

    Step 4. Connect ACRYLIC MOUNTS&nbspTO WALL

    Attach the bottom of the standoff mounts. This is the place you&rsquoll will need the special drill little bit. The screw goes by means of the standoff mount into the wall so I essential a extensive skinny bit to reach through the standoff mount to screw it in. Later you&rsquoll screw the cap on with the sheet of acrylic pinched in between the cap the rest of the mount.

    Action 5. GLUE ARTWORK On to ACRYLIC

    Glue artwork onto your acrylic. This is in which I&rsquom preserving dollars by only using Just one sheet of acrylic. BUT&hellip.simply because I&rsquom only employing a single sheet of acrylic, I desired to adhere my prints right on to the acrylic. Maintain this in mind when deciding on your artwork&hellip this system may well not be fantastic for any artwork of benefit or relevance.&nbsp I employed adhesive dots, but any form of glue or tape really should function!

    Phase 6. Attach&nbspARTWORK TO MOUNTS

    Screw the sheets of acrylic with maps adhered on to the standoff mounts.

    Congrats- you&rsquore performed!

    I really like how clean and very simple a floating acrylic body is. I&nbspmade one particular for the young children space&nbspin our aged dwelling, but DIYd the hardware. I&rsquom thrilled by these standoff mounts and apart from the crooked ceiling, Adore how these work more than our mattress. The maps make me content (as evidenced by the maps I have&nbsphanging all around our home), but the floating acrylic frames in shape the a bit additional stylish area that is coming with each other in our learn bedroom. check these guys out to exhibiting you the whole space!!
