OK, it seems like lots of sites are saying that I can center the cleat on one stud and just put drywall anchors in the other holes. Guess I'll do that tonight.

*sigh* OK, thanks. I ordered a 1.5mm, but it's not here yet. I guess I could still put at least the duster coats on today with the 2.0mm.

As for right now...I'm about to start building the frame.

I'm thinking I might try velcro to the the frame. If it works for a 122" sintra to the wall, then a frame would probably work as well. (I still want to build the frame to have it stick out slightly...

Excellent, then I will do that. $80 sounds reasonable compared to the other prices I'm seeing posted here. Guess I was hoping for way too low.
