I change up the stuff inside all the time... usually with the seasons.
This strap is heavy, so get your long screws and find a stud !

Grain elevators are historic... and this section of the strap of bins came out of an Indiana location. I have one section in my barn, and this one in my home. The steel was rusty, so I just lightly hit it with my sanding block and put sealer on it.  Now it's clean to display "junk" !
