I picked up a pretty piece of old moulding I'd like to attach to a wall, and use as a shelf of sorts. Is there a way to attach, or hang it, without making holes in the front of the piece? Is construction glue the only solution?
Try looking in the picture hanging section of the hardware store, find the saw toothed ones that you would attach to a frame in order to hang the picture. That should do the least amount of damage..
Thanks for your reply. We did in fact go to the picture framing section of our local home improvement store, but found something different! It's a picture hanging system of 2 brackets (they look like strips of metal to me!) You attach one to wall, one to item to be hung, and the 2 pieces of metal fit into each other. Nothing visible! We purchased the large one which will hold up to 200 lbs for my piece of molding - great! Went back to store to purchase 2 smaller ones to attach other old items which had ugly old nails or screws showing! Not too expensive either!
I forgot about that kind! Glad to see that everything worked out for you.. Thanks for posting the outcome!
