7. ATTACH THE LEGS
7a. Lay the framework on the floor.
Working on 1 end of the framework,
fill 1 of the drilled holes with hot glue,
and insert the 21" rod. While the glue
is setting, use a square and a level to
establish a straight positioning of the
leg. Repeat with the other 21" rod. This
will be the bottom end of the divider.
7b. Working on the opposite end of the
framework, repeat the process with
the 5½" lengths of the remaining larger
rods, inserting the cut edges.
7c. Once the glue has set, screw each spring, cut end first, into each of the 14" narrow rods, leaving 2" of the
spring exposed. Firmly slide each of these rods into the top anchor rods. From here, you will be able to screw
down or unscrew the narrow rod — just as you would a curtain tension rod — to adjust and secure the divider
to your desired ceiling height.
8. SECURE FARM TO FRAMEWORK
8a. Lay one of the plexi panels, painted side down, over the framework and center it. Make marks along the
edge of the plexi at 9" intervals, centered over the frame. These marks are where you will drill holes to attach
the panels to the frame. Take the panel off of the frame and drill a 6" hole in the panel at each mark. Be
careful not to press too hard while drilling to avoid cracking the plexiglass. Repeat with second panel.
8b. Lightly wipe away dust and fingerprints from the painted sides of the plexi with a soft towel and glass
cleaner, being careful not to affect painted areas.
8c. Lay the framework over newspaper
and secure each side of the plexiglass;
space the screws/washers at 9" along
the top and sides of the framework.
Screw the panels onto the frame using
the pan head screws and washers,
making sure the panels are centered
on the framework.
8d. Now set up your divider in a spot
where you can marvel at your farm
while enjoying a new atmosphere.
