DESIGNER DENINEâ??S REVIBE PROJECT OF THE DAY:
o â??That supportive, dimensional surface you seek to support oversize prints and posters isnâ??t hard to find. A hollow core door may provide just the ticket! Cast-off doors may be cut down and hung as a lightweight, substantial backing to posters and favorite print images.â??
o Back an oversize print in 3 easy steps. Cast-off items needed: print (paper poster or photo print); tacky spray mount (optional); duck tape; paint (optional); hollow core door; tools or service to cut door to size
Size a door to the print. Leave a border on the surface of the door (door will be larger that poster this way) or cut the door to size of the poster. OPTION: Paint the door.
Affix the poster/print to the door using tape or a tacky, moveable spray mount product (spray can found at craft and art supplies stores; follow directions on the can.)Finish the edges of the print and door with a clean line of duck tape around the edge to seal any hollow door openings and provide a finished look. Finished, backed prints may be hung or lean against a wall. TIP: Oversize prints may be printed by a variety of convenient photo services, or pull a favorite poster from your past. The reaction you receive from guests and your own satisfaction will be supersize!
