I bought these uber cool sheet metal edges to make a photo ledge. Little did I relize they wernt deep enough (remideyed with plyers) but now all my pics lean forward and fall easily. HELP! how do I keep these up and working for my purpose? I love the industral look.

This is the peice. The bottom is flat with a half lip and then a mesh back


the peice with a single frame that dosent show that they falll off the wall.


the whole long peice.

There is a second one that still needs to go up but when the first one failed to perform I figured I would get help before mounting the second.

Perhaps you could use longer bolts to mount, leaving a gap between the shelf and the wall. Then use several clothespins (maybe spray painted black or silver, to go with your industrial theme) or other clips to fill in the gap and hold the shelf steady away from the wall. Kinda like this:

You may also have to use poster putty along the top of your pictures to tack them to the wall.

Glue a wine cork onto the bottom back edge of your art.  The cork won't mar the wall and the frame won't lean.
