Lean On Me: Propping Artwork

Maybe it is because I am about to sign divorce papers every time I have my husband hang anything in our house, but I have become a big fan of leaning or propping artwork.  I posted here about a mirror that took AGES  to make its way onto the wall.

In our home, the art starts out sitting on a table or on the floor because I hate to nag my husband one more time!  Overtime, I find myself growing to like the way it looks and in some instances, I keep it leaning rather than hang it.

Done right, this look can appear perfectly put together despite being unfinished.  It is a great way decorate a mantle, console table or even adorn the floor. Check out these examples of how to lean artwork without it looking like you forgot to hang it!
