Hanging Framed Artwork on Rarely Used Doors

Hanging Framed Artwork on Rarely Used Doors

We have a feeling this might be one of those posts that elicit's plenty of your "um, no way" reactions. Regardless, we trudge on, in support of those of you like us, who have an entryway with not an ounce of wall space. Literally, upon entering our apartment, you walk into an Alice in Wonderland-ish space of six doorways - one of which is rarely used and leads to the attic...

So in our desperation for artwork in the entryway, and after resisting the temptation for years and years we finally hung a treasured piece, a vintage map of New York City that belonged to a loved one. The piece actually sits very firmly on the door, without moving when the door is opened. We have those little half bubble bumpers on the back side of the corners of the piece which helps keep it stable.

Have you hung framed artwork on doors?
