i have wanted one of these for a really long time, so when Christmas started creeping up on us, i may or may not have left brad some hints :) he immediately regretted the purchase when i made him help me hang in on Christmas morning [in my defense i did make him breakfast first!].
i chose a personalized hanger with two rows of hooks. i almost got three but then my OCD kicked in. i knew it would drive me crazy if i couldn't get them to hang neatly so that i could see every one. i chose to get 'hustle harder' on it [long story].
installation was surprisingly simple and we got it into place in about ten minutes [i subtracted the 30 minutes it took us to find a screwdriver]. mine came with three screws, three anchors, and three spacers. we decided not to use the anchors [i was nervous about not using them but brad convinced me to try it and it hasn't fallen down yet, score one for him] to avoid the larger holes in the wall.
after we got it up i wiped it down with a stainless steel cleaning cloth that i use to clean my refrigerator because it was covered in fingerprints. then i loaded it up with my bling:
be sure to check out the allied medal website if you're looking for a nice way to display your medals.... they do some really beautiful landscape ones too. i'd love to get one with the Asheville skyline/mountains on it.
