I think it's going to have to go near the window, and we'll risk the fading. I expect we'll want it recovered when we finally move to our permanent home to get rid of the cat damage.
Yesterday we found the remainder of the hardware we need to properly hang the weapons on the wall. Two simple boards full of straight coat pegs will hold tonfa, escrima, and kama quite nicely, and we saw some neat hooks that will hold that cheap little sword in its sheath. We're still hunting,though, for the hardware for a few other things. I intend to hang the belt-boards in the stairwell too, along with various pictures of them in their karate uniforms.
Things are coming together in the apartment. Yay!
