I have some bigg-ish pieces of driftwood (2-3ft long) that I would like to hang on my walls (no really don't laugh it looks cool in my head!)  so that the hanging apparatus does not show.  Can you reccommend anything?  I am having no luck coming up with hardware ideas other than some really expensive hooks from Lee Valley that I can't find anywhere else.

I would imagine anything you might use for those floating shelves would work. Just doublecheck they're rated for the weight and all.

hey! don't know if you already figured something out for not, but there are these types of screws that are double sided, and have one end wood screw and one end drywall screw. they look something like.....


this!

you would screw one end into the drift (a part that is especially sturdy!) and then one part into a stud... if you go to a small hardware store and tell them what you are doing, they should be able to help you. (also, mention the two-sided screw majigs)

best wishes!

Depending on how large and heavy the pieces are you could try nailing some sawtooth picture hangers to the backside.  That's all I can come up with.  Good luck though!  I want to see pics when you figure it out because I bet it'll look awesome!
