Do-it-yourself Price range FLOATING ACRYLIC FRAMES

For a even though now, I&rsquove been keeping off on publishing about our learn bed room since of two issues: the curtains are also quick so I need to have to sew a strip on the base of just about every a person and&hellip I didn&rsquot know what to do with the wall above the bed. I&rsquom however dragging my toes with the curtains (stitching&rsquos haaaarrrrdddd), but&hellip I worship the new-and-enhanced wall over the bed. I observed those people remarkable vintage map prints and was so content to hold them up!


I grabbed 4 maps for the master bedroom: Washington, Providence, Brooklyn, and New York&hellip 4 metropolitan areas of worth to us! I didn&rsquot want a good frame to just take absent from the splendor of these maps so&hellip I determined to get&nbspanother stab at floating acrylic frames. On check my site spending budget.

Elements FOR FLOATING Body

(affiliate back links integrated for your comfort):

  • standoff mounts

  • optional:&nbspgold spray paint

  • long #six screws and anchors if necessary

  • you&rsquoll have to have a narrow and prolonged drill bit to in shape inside your standoff mount. I utilized&nbspthis just one&nbspfrom Home Depot

  • Glue Dots

  • Acrylic. Lowes will slice acrylic for you&hellip I added 3 inches to each and every dimension so these eighteen x 24 inch maps meant my acrylic was reduce to 24 x thirty. To minimize fees, I utilised 4 sheets of acrylic and glued the artwork right on to every sheet&hellip naturally it will be a bit nicer to use 1 sheet of acrylic on both facet of the artwork, but it will incorporate another $50+ to the value of this venture.

  • laser level

    Step one: SPRAY PAINT MOUNTING Hardware

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

    Tip: stick standoff mounts into an outdated cardboard box for quick spraying


    Drill holes in your acrylic at every single corner. To drill by acrylic, use painters tape on each and every facet of the acrylic to preserve it from cracking. On a flat floor with a slim piece of wood or cardboard beneath, slowly but surely implement increasing stress to drill all the way by way of your acrylic. (Make guaranteed you depart the protective sheet on the overall time&hellip get it off just right before hanging.)

    Phase 3. Evaluate YOUR FRAMES

    Measure and mark where by you will have to have to screw in your standoff mounts. Use the laser degree to make it a lot easier. (Feel it or not, my frames are all stage&hellip we just live in a historic property without too several proper angles!)

    Step four. Attach ACRYLIC MOUNTS&nbspTO WALL

    Attach the base of the standoff mounts. This is where you&rsquoll need the special drill bit. The screw goes by means of the standoff mount into the wall so I needed a lengthy skinny little bit to reach by means of the standoff mount to screw it in. Later you&rsquoll screw the cap on with the sheet of acrylic pinched amongst the cap the rest of the mount.

    Phase five. GLUE ARTWORK Onto ACRYLIC

    Glue artwork onto your acrylic. This is where I&rsquom saving money by only working with One particular sheet of acrylic. BUT&hellip.mainly because I&rsquom only applying 1 sheet of acrylic, I required to adhere my prints straight onto the acrylic. Continue to keep this in brain when selecting your artwork&hellip this approach may perhaps not be good for any artwork of worth or great importance.&nbsp I utilized adhesive dots, but any kind of glue or tape should really do the job!

    Move six. Connect&nbspARTWORK TO MOUNTS

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

    Congrats- you&rsquore done!

    I adore how cleanse and straightforward a floating acrylic body is. I&nbspmade one for the little ones place&nbspin our aged household, but DIYd the hardware. I&rsquom thrilled by these standoff mounts and apart from the crooked ceiling, Like how these operate above our mattress. The maps make me content (as evidenced by the maps I have&nbsphanging all more than our home), but the floating acrylic frames healthy the a bit additional stylish house that is coming alongside one another in our learn bed room. One stage nearer to exhibiting you the entire area!!
