For a when now, I&rsquove been keeping off on posting about our master bedroom simply because of two issues: the curtains are as well quick so I have to have to sew a strip on the base of every single just one and&hellip I didn&rsquot know what to do with the wall higher than the bed. I&rsquom nevertheless dragging my toes with the curtains (sewing&rsquos haaaarrrrdddd), but&hellip I worship the new-and-improved wall over the bed. I located individuals awesome classic map prints and was so happy to hold them up!


I grabbed four maps for the master bedroom: Washington, Providence, Brooklyn, and New York&hellip 4 cities of relevance to us! I didn&rsquot want a strong frame to just take away from the splendor of these maps so&hellip I determined to acquire&nbspanother stab at floating acrylic frames. On a budget.

Materials FOR FLOATING Body

(affiliate backlinks bundled for your benefit):

  • standoff mounts

  • optional:&nbspgold spray paint

  • extended #six screws and anchors if necessary

  • you&rsquoll need to have a slim and long drill little bit to suit inside of your standoff mount. I made use of&nbspthis just one&nbspfrom Household Depot

  • Glue Dots

  • Acrylic. Lowes will lower acrylic for you&hellip I additional three inches to every dimension so these eighteen x 24 inch maps intended my acrylic was slice to 24 x thirty. To slash costs, I employed four sheets of acrylic and glued the artwork straight on to each and every sheet&hellip obviously it will be a bit nicer to use a single sheet of acrylic on possibly side of the artwork, but it will include yet another $fifty+ to the price tag of this project.

  • laser stage

    Step 1: SPRAY PAINT MOUNTING Hardware

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

    Idea: stick standoff mounts into an old cardboard box for simple spraying


    Drill holes in your acrylic at every corner. To drill via acrylic, use painters tape on just about every aspect of the acrylic to keep it from cracking. On a flat area with a skinny piece of wooden or cardboard underneath, little by little use expanding tension to drill all the way via your acrylic. (Make certain you leave the protective sheet on the entire time&hellip consider it off just prior to hanging.)

    Action 3. Evaluate YOUR FRAMES

    Measure and mark where by you will need to have to screw in your standoff mounts. Use the laser stage to make it a lot easier. (Feel it or not, my frames are all amount&hellip we just stay in a historic household with no as well numerous appropriate angles!)

    Action four. Connect ACRYLIC MOUNTS&nbspTO WALL

    Connect the base of the standoff mounts. Learn More is in which you&rsquoll have to have the distinctive drill little bit. The screw goes via the standoff mount into the wall so I essential a prolonged skinny bit to attain as a result of 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 relaxation of the mount.


    Glue artwork on to your acrylic. This is wherever I&rsquom preserving funds by only using One particular sheet of acrylic. BUT&hellip.for the reason that I&rsquom only utilizing one particular sheet of acrylic, I needed to adhere my prints instantly onto the acrylic. Keep this in thoughts when selecting your artwork&hellip this approach could not be excellent for any artwork of value or relevance.&nbsp I used adhesive dots, but any form of glue or tape should really perform!

    Phase six. Connect&nbspARTWORK TO MOUNTS

    Screw the sheets of acrylic with maps adhered onto the standoff mounts.

    Congrats- you&rsquore completed!

    I enjoy how clear and simple a floating acrylic frame is. I&nbspmade one particular for the children area&nbspin our previous household, but DIYd the components. I&rsquom thrilled by these standoff mounts and aside from the crooked ceiling, Appreciate how these perform in excess of our mattress. The maps make me happy (as evidenced by the maps I have&nbsphanging all more than our residence), but the floating acrylic frames in good shape the a bit a lot more stylish area that is coming jointly in our learn bedroom. A person move nearer to displaying you the complete room!!
