Hello AT, I have bought this poster from Ikea to use as a "headboard" in my guest room. The problem I have is that it will be covering a window, and I would prefer to not have sunlight streaming through it. Does anyone have any suggestions for creating some sort of liner/sunlight block to attach to the piece itself (it is as thick as a piece of canvas)? Thank you for any help! Thanks, Johanna

Johanna, Very cool. We'd suggest foamcore beneath the poster, which is easy to buy and work with .....scratch that, when your head hits the foamcore it will dent. You really have to use some type of wood. Luon is a very very thin plywood that would do the job, but you'd have to really attach it to the wall so that it doesn't bend and move. Otherwise a nice piece of 1/2 plywood with one smooth side (for the poster) would do the job. To attach the poster, there are a number of art glues that you could check out. A trip to Pearl Paint would solve all your problems there. Anyone else?
