So, as you may recall, last week was the big Abbott Kinney Festival.
I had previously built this portable wall for Unique LA. You can see the original tutorial here.It is 8’ long by 6’ high and it works beautifully. But it takes a bit to set up and take down and with Abbott Kinney I only had a couple of hours to unload, repark and set up. And tear down was going to be after nightfall.
So I needed something that was quicker.
I took three of the slats from the original wall (they are inexpensive furring strips from Home Depot) and linked them together with scrap wood and screws creating a 16” high by 8’ long “mini-wall.”I added a large hook and eye assembly to the top and BAM – instant hanging wall.
(these pics are not from my actual booth and I apologize for the funky lighting)
It was perfect because it was up and out of the way but still highly visible and it worked like a dream because all I had to do was stick it up there and I was done!
And then I had another idea!
What if I wanted more of a wall? Maybe to cover the back of the booth and provide more room for hanging?
I think I may make a few more of these – that way I can choose exactly how much “wall” I want for each show (of course, I’m playing by Cheltenham Road rules so I won’t actually make the extra ones until the night before my next show).
