After a few talking points on the hanging strategy, I had my trusty and extremely skilled work room assist. With the shortest side being the hanging point, the end needed an exterior pocket and was sewn with a coordinating, durable woven fabric. While the pocket doesn't show from the front it is important to blend fabrics in case there is a future use. Inside the pocket fits a piece of lumber which was sanded and prime painted to avoid splinters and snags along the fabric. The lumber will be the wall mounting bar for anchor hardware. On the opposite end, a solid iron rod was cut exactly to size and placed inside as a light weight for the textile. After all the details were made and the ladder was in place, the wall hanging makes the journey up the wall for display.

The ladder with rubber bumpers raised up to position.
The mounting screws are pre drilled.
The wood 'T' stick will come in handy.
The guys tie the draping fabric together to prep for the lift.
With all tools handy, Edward slowly walks up the ladder.
Now the handy 'T' stick comes into play as support.

The side screws with anchors are put in place.
After the hardware is mounted, the pocket sides get sewn closed.
Hand sewing on a ladder...very detailed.
The wall hanging looks wonderful and ready for the
rest of the room to be transformed.
