Prep for hanging the harp was paint. Linda chose a charcoal brown that goes very well with the gold paint. Black would have been a bit harsh and contrived, I think.

We got it hung in the music room last night. Took three people to do the hefting. There follows shots of the french cleat assembly on the wall. The screws made nice contact in the 3/4 thick furring strips and then went right into the cinder block behind.

Down low on the back of the harp are two blocks, screwed on, which hold it away from and parallel to the wall.

Embellishment will be over time.
