Need help to hang a screen, Advice Please

I have a laminate 4 panel hinged decorative screen/room divider. It is 7 ft tall and each panel is 1" thick.   I want to hang it on my wall behind my bed and spread it out flat of course.  My ceiling is 8 ft high.


It is heavy so how do I secure it to the wall without having to damage the back of the screen.

Beautiful backdrop for your bedroom city!


Several ideas come to mind:


1) Secure a ledger board into the wall, out of view behind the bed. Rest the weight of the screen on the ledger board and secure the top with brass corner anchors (found in Hardware);

2) Suspend the screen with eyelets attached to the top edge and secure into the framing board behind the sheetrock; and

3) Use multiple pieces of industrial strength velcro or 20-pound double-sided tape.


I list these in order of preference ... I prefer #1 most and prefer #3 least.


Certainly, other members of The Community will share other ideas!
