How to space pieces off a wall

Postby hondafreak08 » Mon Apr 03, 2017 10:41 am

Here's what I'm trying to do and need advise.
I know this has been covered but I don't know how to search.
I am cuttIng a 4'x4' sign and want to space it approx 1" off the wall. The customer is going to put a light behind it.
I am looking for the kiss method (keep it simple stupid)
I'm afraid I keep overthinking it

Thanks for your help
Ethan

Why not used key hole brackets on the back to hold it off the wall. put anchors in the wall with bolts, mount the sign with brackets over the bolts and then tighten the bolts
