Its so easy even busy mom’s can hang canvas up on the wall, and kids can help. This video is proof.
“The folding of the canvas was fast and easy – it all locks in place perfectly. I love how strong the canvas felt, but it was still light enough to go on with simple Velcro command strips. I’m notorious for putting 10 holes in the wall because I couldn’t find the measuring tape and said, “Meh, I can totally eyeball this.” So honestly, I’m happy with anything to avoid the nail!”
—Stephanie, busy mom of 3
